Fortunately no injuries when this Porsche tried to park inside someone’s apartment, only to be stopped by a wall. The driver was sober and embarrassed after making a costly, inadvertent mistake. DL

@urbansoule Ironically we just asked him yesterday if he walks into a cubicle, would he come out wearing a cape and fly into the HVAC system. Your Clark Kent observation was spot on! DL

After recovering this wheelchair, we were able to return it to 6 year old Angel. His $9k chair was in moms stolen car and was dumped. Angel had to go to school today in a stroller! We’re so happy for Angel. BTW, Officer Clayson Tanner is new! DL

Very dirty shoes for three adults who decided they wanted to go back to school. They were caught breaking into the new Des Moines Elementary School construction site. I'm sure SCORE jail will be happy to have them visit. PR

Officers responded to a possible crime in progress this afternoon. In the process of searching the area, things got a little soggy. It took a team to de-mud! CS

Des Moines Police Officers responded to a mom locked out & dinner on the stove and a child inside. Officers quickly broke a sliding door and rescued the child from the smoke filled apartment unharmed.
Our officer was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation and released.

@crosscut2020 Absolutely. Playing with kids on a snowy day is the best way to spend a shift where being on the road is dangerous. We can’t think of a better way to spend time between calls. DL

King County AFIS print examiners + Officer Weable who never forgets names or faces = felony suspect in custody. Science and the community win again. DL

@YvonneNutting No kidding! The kidnap scam targets elderly and Hispanic and scammers even use a screaming female to impersonate the family members. The dating one is new. Seems like a job might not be a terrible idea! DL
