From my inbox on Thursday afternoon:

I’d love to know why I saw ~ (5) City of Tacoma police cars and (2) Puyallup Nation police cars at an (Puyallup Nation?) apartment complex on 21st St. NE near our neighborhood in NE Tacoma. As I had kids in the car, I didn’t slow down to ask…

Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum provided the answer to Lights & Sirens.

The location is near 21st street and 63rd avenue. It was a burglary in progress call. Since it is on/near tribal property Tribal PD was notified. The same suspicious vehicle was involved in a burglary (in the county) earlier in the day. One in custody and his vehicle was impounded. He is also suspected of burglaries in the King County area.

Thanks dear reader and thanks Mark.
