Press Release

On 10/23/2013 Fife Police Officers were on routine patrol when they contacted a female in the 3400 block of Pacific Hwy E for a pedestrian violation.  The female, who was under the influence of narcotics, was found to be 15 years old and had been away from her home in Marysville for 5 days.  After speaking with detectives about her situation, detectives went to a motel in the 3500 block of Pacific Hwy E where they found the female had been staying with an adult male and two adult females.  Both females admitted to being prostitutes and drug users, but denied knowing the age of the juvenile female.  The male was uncooperative and denied any knowledge of what was happening at the motel or with any of the females despite being located in one of the rooms and having a key to the other. 

Detective served search warrants on two rooms at the hotel and found narcotics, syringes, drug paraphernalia, cell-phones and a computer believed to have been used to post prostitution ads on the internet including ads of the juvenile. 
The adult females were booked into the Pierce County Jail for unlawful possession of a controlled substance and prostitution related charges.  The male was booked into Pierce County Jail for promoting sexual abuse of a minor and drug related charges including providing narcotics to a minor.  The juvenile was released to her mother.  Charges on her have been forwarded to the Pierce County Juvenile Prosecutor.

Tractor Pull for Special Olympics Washington

Fife Police Department's first annual Tractor Pull fundraiser for Special Olympics Washington was held this last Saturday in conjunction with the 2013 Fife Harvest Festival. Four teams consisting of six members each, made up a FPD team, a TFD team and two Fife High football teams, competed in a timed competition to pull a Public Works backhoe weighing 16,000 pounds, 50 feet. Winning the pull was one of the football teams with a time of 22:05 seconds! The friendly competition raised $260.00 for Special Olympics Washington. We'd like to thank Tacoma Fire, Station 12, and the Fife High School football program for their participation in the event! We look forward to competing again next year!
