Mike Allen at Juniper Flowers, located at 308 W. Republican St., just wrote in informing us that their shop was broken into over the weekend (sometime between the evening of March 26 and the morning of March 27). He wrote,
We were vandalized on Friday night/Saturday morning. Our business is in lower Queen Anne on Republican St. Someone attempted to break the glass on our door. When they were unsuccessful, they broke a much larger window with a rock to gain access. They made off with our cash register. Just thought residents of Queen Anne should know.
If anyone has any information about this break-in, please comment below.

At approximately 3:32 a.m. this morning, Thursday, March 18 the owner of a business located in the 400 block of Dexter Ave N called police to reports that a burglary suspect had entered his business and attempted to take the cash register. From the SPD blotter:
Unbeknownst to the suspect, the victim is currently a self defense instructor. The victim saw the suspect and made a grab for him before the suspect could escape with the cash register.
The suspect dropped the cash register and briefly struggled with victim before running away.
According to the report, the suspect left behind his bicycle and cell phone when he fled the scene. When officers arrived they set up a containment for a K-9 track, but it was unsuccessful.
A few hours later, at approximately 4:49 a.m., an officer caught up with the suspect at 4 Ave W/W McGraw St. He was positively identified by the victim and booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.
