ABERDEEN, Wash. – A man tried to reprogram a radio station on the South side of Aberdeen for a Memorial Day treat to his listeners yesterday. Police Captain John Green tells KBKW on May 28th just before 4 PM officers were called to the report of a suspicious person in the 1300 block of Coolidge road. Green said the responding officer found a broken window, and circled the building. The suspect was found attempting to climb out of the broken window carrying food and a glass award of some kind.
The 26 year old man later admitted to entering the empty radio station to “find some food and to change the channel,” he told officers he may have talked on the radio, and was trying to program a “full on rock block” Memorial Day weekend.
