The following information was compiled from Renton Police Department case reports.

He walked into the Renton Police Station at City Hall and placed on the counter a lighter and a 6-inch glass pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine.

He announced he had meth for sale and asked that officers arrest him.

By the time an officer walked to the public side of the counter, the man was already kneeling on the floor with his hands behind is back. The white rock-like substance in the tube looked like meth and testing showed that indeed it was.

He was arrested.

The 35-year-old man is tired of the way he’s living and figured the best way to deal with it was to get arrested. So he bought some meth and went to the police station.

He was booked into the SCORE regional jail in Des Moines.

HANDGUN PULLED AT GOODWILL: A 31-year-old Seattle man, possibly high on drugs, pulled a handgun on a Goodwill loss-prevention officer May 18 after he was spotted shoplifting merchandise from the store on Northeast Sunset Boulevard.

The suspect was returned to the loss-prevention office, telling the officer he needed to go to the restroom so he could get rid of the drugs in his bag. He then charged the store employee and grabbed a handgun from his bag. He threatened to shoot himself and asked the employee to shoot him.

The employee wrested away the gun, which was unloaded. Another employee heard the commotion and came to help until officers arrived.

The man, who has a felony criminal history, was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of first-degree assault and felon in possession of a firearm. He also faces drug and theft charges.

DRIVING WITH A WARRANT: A 49-year-old Auburn man was stopped on Northeast Sunset Boulevard May 26 while driving without a rear license plate. The temporary tag wasn’t valid.

In verifying his name, an officer discovered a $50,000 warrant from the King County Sheriff’s Office.

He was booked into the jail at the Regional Justice Center in Kent.

FOR PERSONAL USE?: The 27-year-old Brier man told the Renton officer that the white crystalline substance inside the baggie in his backpack was for his personal use.

The officer asked again and this time he answered “meth.”

He had just been stopped for shoplifting electronic gear and Haribo Frogs gummy candy from nearby Fry’s Electronics.

He was booked into the SCORE regional jail for investigation of drug possession.
