The woman saw two teens run- ning the street, one with her purse in his hand. She yelled for help, and a man tried to chase the teens. He was unable to catch them.

The woman had been storing the items in the house while having construction work done on it. On the morning of the burglary, a con- struction crew arrived at the house to find a man who had let himself in on the second floor. He claimed to be a previous owner of the house who was coming to pick up the rest of his property. The man remained for another halt" hour and left in a blue 1970s model Dodge van. The workers said that he may have been with some- one else. The suspects are still at large. The owner of the house believes the sus- pects may have been friends of the previous owner.

The officer approached the van to inform the driver he was illegally parked. When the driver rolled down the window, the officer immediatcly smelled alcohol in the vehicle. He also apparently rccog- nizcd one of the individuals in the car, an 18-year-old man, from an alcohol-related incident in West Seattle the week before. The officer confiscated two six- packs of beer from the van. The dri- ver, a 40-year-old man, was booked at King County Jail for investiga- tion of unlawful furnishing of alco- hol.

The total cost of the calls is $950.82. The man received a call from his phone company notifying him of the calls about two months ago. He immediately called several long-dis- tance carriers to cut off the services from his home number, but the same calls still appeared in his next statement. The man told police that most of the calls were made during school hours, so he does not believe that his children are responsible.
