RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Strapping a life-size doll into the passenger seat can be a high-risk strategy to gain access to a carpool lane. It gets even riskier if you cut off a state trooper in traffic.
The Washington State Patrol says a trooper had to slam on his brakes to avoid hitting a car that cut in front of him to enter the carpool lane during morning rush hour traffic on northbound Interstate 405 in the Renton area.
Capt. Rob Huss says when the trooper pulled the car over for an unsafe lane change he found that the front seat "passenger" was an inflatable life-sized doll wearing a sweatshirt.
The 21-year-old man behind the wheel assured the trooper that he was a good driver and not using the doll as a **** passenger. He still got a $248 ticket last Friday for a carpool lane violation and an unsafe lane change. 4/5/2012
The Duchess - A guy who frequents the local Harley Dealership decided he needed some new motor clothes and accessories, so after hours he rode his bicycle to the dealership, threw an axe thru the front door glass, then proceeded to enter and helped himself to free shopping. When police and dealership management reviewed the security video, management recognized him. The police went to his house to confront him, the guy opened the door and let them in dressed in some of his new motor clothes with the tags still on them and the bike sitting in plain view. 2/2/2013

Imagine you're a waitress, out with friends on a night off, when you lose your wallet. Cash, credit cards, driver's license—all gone. Your bank later informs you that checks are being issued in your name.
It's a pain, but you carry on. Two weeks later, you're at work when four people walk in and sit in your section. They start ordering drinks. You ask to see their IDs. A woman in the group hands a driver's license to you. You look down, and it's yours.
That is precisely what police in Colorado say happened to Brianna Priddy, a server at a Lakewood Applebee's.
Priddy, though, didn't panic.
"I handed it back to her and said, 'Sure, I'll be right back with your margarita,'" she told Denver's NBC affiliate.
Priddy called the police, and tried to act normal while waiting for them to arrive.
"I put on my server smile and tried to take care of them, but I was shaking like crazy," she said.

When police arrived, the woman, whose name has not been released, was ******** on suspicion of theft, identity theft and criminal impersonation. Police also found ********* in her possession.
"Dumb criminal," Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis told Denver's 9NEWS. "That's the first thing that comes to mind."
