Two men in two separate incidents were arrested for crimes in North Bend.
North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner said in an email that someone reported that their 1992 Acura had been stolen from a parking lot either May 2 or 3. At 1 p.m. May 4, the captain of the security guards for the North Bend Outlet Mall saw the stolen car in the parking lot.
Toner said King County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded and arrested a 36-year-old North Bend man, who was walking away from the vehicle. The man was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a stolen vehicle, a class B felony, and was transported to the King County Jail.
In another incident, Toner said a citizen reported at about 1 a.m. May 3 that someone just entered his vehicle in North Bend’s Silver Creek neighborhood.
Deputies responded and contacted the suspect, who was in possession of items he had stolen from around the neighborhood, Toner said.
The 20-year-old Newcastle man was visiting a friend who was house-sitting for a North Bend relative, Toner said.
The man was booked into the Issaquah Jail for investigation of possession of stolen property and vehicle prowling, both gross misdemeanors, Toner said.
