A North Bend couple reported they left their 2007 Chevrolet truck in Mount Si Tavern’s parking lot the night of March 16.

Peeing in the bushes
A police officer saw a woman in the bushes on Southeast 140th Street at 9:15 p.m. March 16. He reported she then ran out of the bushes, got into her vehicle and drove away. When he tried to stop her, she pulled into a driveway and then almost backed into his vehicle. The officer asked what Mare Bron, 50, of Snoqualmie, was doing in the bushes. She told him she was urinating and was on her way to visit a friend. Bron failed field sobriety tests and her blood alcohol content readings were .218 percent and .24 percent. The legal limit in Washington is .08 percent. Bron was arrested for DUI and taken to the Issaquah Jail.

Hey, quiet down out there
At about 1 a.m. March 30, a caller advised that two drunken men were banging on doors and screaming in the 38000 block of Southeast Northern Street. An officer told subjects about the city’s noise ordinance.
At 1:10 p.m. March 30, a person told police a 16-year-old driver sped by the reporting party and passed them in a school zone. The reporting party told police that he/she followed the driver to his home and told him he couldn’t drive 50 mph in a school zone. Police were unable to locate the young driver.
Not the best place to nap
At 8 a.m. April 1, police discovered a vehicle stuck on the railroad tracks just off Stone Quarry Road. An officer called the railroad company to make sure no trains came until a tow company could remove the vehicle. Police then realized two men, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old, were sleeping in the car.
The officer said it took several tries, but he was finally able to wake the men. He said the men told him that the night before they had lost the front bumper of the car and were driving around trying to find it when they got stuck on the tracks. One of the men admitted they had been drinking vodka while searching for the bumper at 2 a.m.
Both men were arrested for criminal trespass and illegal possession/consumption of alcohol by a minor, and were taken to the Issaquah Jail. It took the tow company a half-hour to remove the vehicle from the railroad tracks.
