It was a good week for Olympian reporter Amelia Dickson — three of the top five stories were hers — but it wasn’t a great week for the community as mostly bad news dominated the headlines.
Let’s take a closer look:
1. Children found safe after Lacey car theft: I say “mostly bad news” because at least this story had a happy ending. The children were found safe and the suspect was later arrested.
2. Suspect arrested in Lacey car theft, child abduction: He was arrested on a state Department of Corrections warrant, according to the story, and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center in Portland, Oregon.
3. Car-motorcyle crash closes Marvin Road: Enough said.
4. Federal agents serve search warrant at state Auditor Troy Kelley’s Tacoma home: Kelley is the talk of the town at the moment after “agents clad in bulletproof vests spent five hours at Kelley’s home, from 9:25 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.,” according to the story.
5. Rainier School District faces bullying lawsuit: The complaint alleges that the student was bullied for years by another girl and that the bullying culminated in a sexual assault at Rainier Middle School.
