Vehicle Prowl and Theft Reported at Tustin Apartments

Yelm police officers responded to a call shortly before noon on Monday, Sept. 12, after a Tustin Apartments resident called to report his car was broken into.

Upon arrival, officers learned the reporting party received a call from his bank, which notified him about fraudulent credit card activity. After the call, the man noticed his wallet was stolen from his vehicle, according to a police report.

The man told police he might have left his car unlocked.

His wallet was stolen, but the reporting party immediately canceled his cards following the fraudulent activity.

There are no leads at this time.

Assault Takes Place at Nisqually Plaza

Yelm police officers received a call regarding a disturbance at the Nisqually Plaza at around 8:15 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12.

Upon arrival, officers learned there had been an alleged altercation between a man and another patron at Young’s Teriyaki. 

The argument led to a threat with a gun, stated a police report, before the man responsible left the business.



Officers were able to apprehend the man and he was arrested on charges of fourth-degree assault and trespass of the second-degree.

Woman Arrested on Several Charges

Yelm police officers observed a woman in a white Jeep who was visibly upset with a driver of a minivan at the Walmart in Yelm at around 6 p.m. on Sept. 18. The driver of the Jeep nearly hit the van, as she continued inching closer to the driver to force them to leave a parking lot.

Both vehicles ended up leaving the store, but the driver of the Jeep reportedly swerved to the right of the van as the driver attempted to pass the vehicle.

This caused officers to turn on their emergency lights to pull the woman over.

The Jeep continued southbound on Clark Street before the woman was eventually pulled over, stated a police report.

The driver exited the vehicle and walked aggressively toward the officer’s car as she explained “it wasn’t her fault,” according to police reports.

She began to yell and became increasingly angry, which led the officer to take her to the ground for both of their safety, the report said.

The woman kicked, yelled and screamed as she was detained.

The woman was escorted to the police car, where she continued her erratic behavior, citing she’s a germaphobe and claustrophobic, stated the report.

The woman was booked in the Nisqually Jail on charges of reckless driving, disorderly conduct and obstructing a law enforcement officer.
