Weekend Crime Roundup: Skylights and Stealing From the Thrift Shops

While y’all are ringing wringing out your socks, here’s a roundup of what made the Seattle cop blotter this weekend:

They may have gotten in an argument, police say. The victim was taken to Harborview with non-life-threatening injuries. This no doubt will force us to change out thinking about approaching people sitting in stolen rides. Er...

Would be computer salesman ended up robbing a Rainier Valley electronics store at gunpoint after a clerk refused to buy two computers. The gunman left with cash and cellphones. Our bet is that the computers were Gateways.

Stealing from a thriftshop? Blue tag specials aside, prices were still to steep for a 30-year-old man caught stealing power tools from St. Vincent de Paul on Sunday.

A man died after the vehicle he was in struck a light pole on Beacon Hill Saturday. The driver has been booked into jail under investigation for vehicular homicide.

And, in case you haven’t heard already, a 13-year-old boy has non-life-threatening injuries after he fell through a skylight at Eckstein Middle School in North Seattle. He and his friends were playing on the roof of the school, reminiscent of that wonderful line from Outside Providence: “My brother’s in a wheel chair because of a freak accident as a kid. One day we were playing touch football and he fell off the roof.”
