I-90/SR18 Weigh Station Vandalized, Washington State Patrol Seeks Witnesses

Did you notice the boarded up windows at the truck weigh station at the I-90/SR 18 interchange?

If so, they aren’t closing up shop at the busy interchange. Rather, the station was damaged by vandal(s) over the weekend and the Washington State Patrol (WSP) is seeking the public’s help in finding the person(s) responsible.

WSP is seeking witnesses to vandalism that occurred on Saturday, March 21st around 7:30AM to its I-90/SR 18 scale house, which is used to weigh and monitor commercial vehicles traveling through the area.

The station was not in operation when three scale house windows were broken by rocks, causing damage estimated at more than $2,000.

 

Via press release, WSP stated they had one witness who reportedly saw Asian male (possibly with some facial hair), in his late 30’s, wearing a green hooded jacket, jeans and gray tennis shoes, throwing rocks at the window of the scale house. The suspect was associated with a brown Toyota Tundra truck.

The Washington State Patrol asks anyone with information regarding the vandalism to contact WSP Detective Ruth Medeiros at ruth.medeiros@wsp.wa.gov or 425-401-7719.

  1. As shocking as vandalism is, I am also shocked at the cost of three windows.
    With all of the highway cameras, I am sure there is some identifying footage.
