Alert residents in the Olympus neighborhood spotted two males sitting in a suspicious truck going through garbage on April 29, according to a release from Newcastle Police Chief Melinda Irvine.

Residents approached the men, who said they were working for the city or homeowners association doing research on residents’ garbage usage. Neither the city, nor the homeowners association have hired anyone to do such a thing.

“That activity is illegal,” Irvine said in the statement.

Residents are encouraged to call Newcastle Police at 425-649-4444 or the nonemergency dispatch at 206-296-3311 if they recognize the Penske-marked truck or can provide any additional information. When calling, reference case No. 13-094380.

If you see similar activity, call 911 or the nonemergency dispatch at 206-296-3311. If possible, write down a license plate number for the vehicle and get a good description of those involved.

The Newcastle Police Department reminds residents to shred all sensitive documents before throwing them in the garbage. Do not put anything with credit card, bank, social security or date of birth information in your recycling. This information can be used to steal your identity.

Residents are encouraged to check their credit reports once a year to be sure there is no suspicious activity. Learn more about protecting your identity at

Also, Irvine encourages all residents to program the nonemergency dispatch in their cell phones for easy access during troublesome situations.
