CASHMERE — The Washington State Patrol says it’s tossing speeding tickets issued near Cashmere last Tuesday and Wednesday because as many as eight officers blasted through a speed trap there without being cited.The Wenatchee World reports that the officers were headed to a drug-recognition conference in Chelan. An Arlington man, Bill Gillam, recorded video showing that while other drivers were pulled over and cited for speeding through the trap, the officers were not. State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins said he didn’t immediately know how many tickets were issued, but dismissing them is “simple fairness.” One woman was pulled over but let off with a warning after she reported being the wife of a state trooper.Some of the officers who sped past were in unmarked cars, making it tough to know what agency they were with. But some were with the State Patrol, the Auburn Police Department and the Seattle Police Department.
