Weapon offense last Friday ends with Sunnyside cops making two arrests

Since last Thursday Sunnyside police have been alerted to three incidents involving weapons.

Last Friday just before noon an officer investigated a weapon offense in the area of North Ninth Street and Yakima Valley Highway.

Two individuals were taken into custody. Requested charges for Carla Stark include possession of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment. Ramon Lopez was charged unlawful possession of a firearm second degree; carrying, exhibiting and/or displaying a weapon; possession of marijuana and using drug paraphernalia to introduce a controlled substance into a human.

A .22 caliber revolver was recovered as a result of the incident, according to police.

Officers also last Friday just after 9:30 p.m. investigated a shots-fired call. A caller on Ninth Street reported hearing small caliber gunshots, but officers were unable to locate evidence of a weapon being discharged in the area.

This past Saturday a resident in the area of Beckner Alley reported seeing three males, two on bicycles and one on foot, flee the area after the caller heard three gunshots. Police say the call was the result of fireworks.

Sunnyside police have also investigated a burglary and four thefts since last Thursday. One of the thefts was a shoplifting incident at Walmart Saturday.

A credit card was reported stolen from a resident in the 100 block of Arrowsmith Avenue Friday, unknown items were reported stolen at Park Drive and Grant Avenue Friday, a stereo was reported stolen from a vehicle in the 600 block of North Avenue Saturday, and a flatscreen television was reported stolen during a burglary in the 300 block of North 10th Street Friday.

Officers have also since last Thursday responded to a 9-1-1 hang-up call, 11 automatic alarms, two assaults, two domestic violence incidents, two graffiti reports, 17 suspicious activity calls, 13 traffic stops, five traffic accidents and four vandalism reports.

Police, too, provided three agency assists and served four arrest warrants, as well as a court order.
