A Message from Officer Matt Treadway 

GREAT NEWS, no guns were stolen from unlocked vehicles since the last blotter. Thank you! There were however still some vehicles that were either “broken” into or stolen due to being unlocked, but we’re making progress. During the past two weeks, we had two traffic enforcement operations in the City.  The first was a DUI emphasis over 4th of July weekend resulting in 1 arrest. The second was a motorcycle safety emphasis weekend before last. This was to promote and enforce violations that are leading causes of injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists. A total of 20 infractions were written during that emphasis.   

National Night Out 

August 3rd is National Night Out. If your community, neighborhood, or HOA is celebrating and would like a deputy to stop by please contact us so we can set it up.  Send me a direct message on Facebook (@newcastlewapd) or Twitter (@PDNewcastle), or email me at [email protected].

Stolen vehicle – Homeowner came out to her driveway and discovered her vehicle had been stolen sometime overnight. Her other vehicle in the driveway had been entered and rummaged through. Her stolen vehicle was recovered several days later in the City of Renton.

12100 blk SE May Creek Park Dr 

Commercial burglary/vehicle theft – Someone broke into an office at a construction site near this location. After breaking in, the suspect took a key for a work truck parked outside. The suspect then stole the truck. The truck was recovered later the same day a couple miles away in unincorporated King County. This is an ongoing investigation. 


07/1 – 945am 

7900 blk 110th Ave SE 

Stolen vehicle – A motorcycle owner came out of his apartment and discovered that his motorcycle had been stolen. The motorcycle has not been recovered yet and there is no suspect information. 


07/03 – 0105am 

8000 blk Coal Creek Pkwy SE 

DUI – A deputy working a DUI emphasis for 4th of July weekend noticed a vehicle going 59 mph in the posted 35 mph zone on Coal Creek Parkway SE. The deputy pulled the vehicle over and upon contacting the driver believed that he was intoxicated. After further investigation the driver was arrested for DUI. He was transported to jail where his BAC level was .108 (the legal limit is .08). This case has been sent to the Newcastle prosecutor for filing of charges. 


07/05 – 105pm 

13800 blk Newcastle Golf Club Rd 

Vehicle taken w/o permission – A vehicle owner called 911 to report that his vehicle had been stolen. A deputy responded and entered the vehicle into the State and National database for stolen vehicles. A short time later the owner called back to say that his adult son had taken the vehicle, and had since returned it. Because the son has used the vehicle in the past, no crime was committed. 


07/06 – 0937 

6600 blk Lake Washington Blvd SE 

Stolen vehicle  The foreman of a jobsite called to report that one of his work trucks and attached utility trailer had been stolen.  The vehicles have not been recovered yet and there is no suspect information. 


07/08 – 442pm 

6600 blk Lake Washington Blvd SE 

Stolen vehicle recovery – Deputies were dispatched to check on a suspicious vehicle that was reported to be dumping garbage near this location. While the deputies were en route, they were told by dispatch that the vehicle they were being sent to investigate had been reported stolen to Seattle PD a couple weeks earlier. When the deputies arrived the vehicle tried to drive away, but they were able to block the vehicle from leaving. They contacted the driver and passenger. The driver was arrested for being in possession of a stolen vehicle and the passenger was arrested for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant from Renton PD for trespassing. This case was sent to the King County Prosecutor’s Office, who refused to file charges on the driver due to their filing standards. What this means is that, despite this person breaking the law, the Prosecutor’s Office has a higher standard than the law, and if a suspect does not meet that standard, the prosecutor will drop the charges. This is not something that only happens in Newcastle, but all of King County. Obviously, this is very frustrating for me and my deputies who put in a lot of hard work trying to get criminals off of the street.

11800 blk SE 78 St 

Domestic violence assault – Deputies were dispatched to a call for a disturbance between a husband and wife. When they arrived they spoke to both individuals to find out what happened.
