A man reported that mail was stolen from his mailbox, in the 11800 block of Southeast 78th Street, between noon and 2 p.m. March 12. He said all the mailboxes in front of his house were propped open. There was no damage done to the mailbox or its lock.

Car break-in

A man reported that his 2007 Toyota Tacoma was broken into at the Wilderness Creek Trailhead, 10345 Renton-Issaquah Road S.E., between 3 and 5 p.m. March 10. He reported that the burglar had used a piece of concrete that had been holding down a tarp in his truck to smash the back window of the vehicle. The interior had been ransacked, and the man reported the stolen items to be a bag of tools worth $400, hiking boots worth $100, a vest worth $120, a work coat worth $80 and a checkbook.

Burglary attempt

Police responded to Shell gas station, 6420 Lake Washington Boulevard, just after 3:30 a.m. March 12, where the front door of the station’s store had been shattered. Police said it looked as if somebody had attempted to use a large tool or brick to break the glass, causing $300 in damage. However, the door was still secured, and the building had not been entered.

Mind games with a cashier

Police responded to Papa Murphy’s Pizza Take ‘N’ Bake Pizza, 6945 Coal Creek Parkway Southeast, where a man had allegedly played mind games with a cashier through cash exchanges to steal $118 just before 4 p.m. March 12. The man — who the employee said was black, in his mid-twenties, about 5-feet 4-inches tall with a five-inch ponytail — first purchased a $1.30 soda and paid for it with a $20 bill. When the employee tried to give the man his $18.70 in change, the man said he didn’t want coins. The man instead suggested that he give employee a $1 in exchange for a $20 bill in change. After this, the man allegedly pulled a wad of cash from his pocket and began fooling the employee with other cash exchanges. After the man left, the employee checked his till and discovered the man had taken $118, so he called police. The employee apologized, saying “I’m sorry, I should have known. I’m really bad at math.”
