A man reported two guns were stolen from his home, in the 8800 block of 123rd Avenue Southeast, between 10 p.m. Feb. 16 and 10:20 p.m. Feb. 21. He reported the stolen guns to be an EIG Derringer worth $300 and a Ruger Single Six worth $600. He said his son’s friend, who had been at the house, had taken the guns and demanded $140 to give the guns back. The man’s son went to give the friend the money, and the friend allegedly used the guns to rob the man’s son of the $140. The man and his son did not report the alleged robbery, which was in Issaquah, because the man’s son has outstanding warrants.
