A vehicle matching the same description was seen prowling cars at the Newcastle McDonald’s Oct. 29.

The car, which could be a Honda model from 1998-2003, has a partial license plate of AMT, followed by numbers. The number portion may include a one and an eight, police said. Read more

Some residents receive wrong voter’s pamphlets

A handful of Newcastle residents reported they did not receive the correct voter’s pamphlets, or failed to receive one at all.

King County has four different editions of voter pamphlets. Each one is tailored to an area’s local measures and offices. Newcastle residents should receive edition two of the pamphlet.

Most Newcastle residents appear to have received the correct one, but for those that didn’t, or didn’t get one at all, the voter pamphlet can be found online at http://1.usa.gov/16LndN1. Voters can also pick one up at local libraries.
