Every Wednesday, we'll whet your police log appetite with the week's best entries.

The Lake Oswego police log is, shall we say, rather popular. We even made a book out of it a few years ago, and people still come into the office in search of a copy.

So with that in mind, we present the Bite-Sized Blotter — a Wednesday sneak peek at the week's calls before the whole log posts Thursday:

5/23 6:01 p.m. A man said two teens passed a fake $100 bill, then came back and said "Haha, we robbed you for fun, here's your money back," and left real money as well as the fake bill near the 100 block of S State Street.

5/24 1:59 p.m. A woman said someone called to schedule a massage and may have been using a false name, because when she tried to confirm the appointment she got a return call from someone in Minnesota who knew nothing about it.

5/24 2:08 p.m. A caller said someone dined-and-dashed near the 17700 block of Pilkington Road, and when she took the bill to his work he refused to pay it.

5/26 11:27 p.m. A caller said a neighbor was stomping around and waking him up. The person was unloading a dishwasher and "not being unreasonably loud." 5/29 12:31 p.m. A resident said a swarm of bees or yellow jackets was making it so people couldn't leave their houses near the 14500 block of Pfeifer Way; when they tried to leave, the swarm would chase them inside. They were advised to call a bee keeper.
