police blotter

Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents:


8:38 p.m. An officer pulled over a Datsun truck observed weaving on SR-305 north of High School Road. A passenger was found to have an outstanding felony warrant from Kitsap Juvenile Court and was arrested. A K9 unit was called in to search the vehicle, turning up an open cellophane wrapper and a small amount of spilled marijuana on the carpet in the cab. The driver and passenger denied ownership of the marijuana and said they didn’t know whose it was. The marijuana was entered into evidence; a report was forwarded to juvenile prosecutors for possible possession charges against the driver.


10:36 a.m. A Bainbridge woman told police that someone had tried to break into her husband’s pickup while it was parked at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church the day before. It appeared someone had unsuccessfully tried to pry open the vehicle’s door. Damage was valued at $700.

12:01 a.m. An officer observed a white Infinity driving erratically on SR-305 between High School Road and Winslow Way. The officer stopped the car on Olympic Drive. Its driver, an Edmonds man, had trouble finding his license and gave the officer an expired vehicle registration, leaving a newer registration document sitting on the seat beside him. The man said he had been drinking beer at a bar in Kingston while watching a friend perform on stage. Following a voluntary breath alcohol test and field sobriety tests, the driver was arrested for driving under the influence and booked into jail.

7:48 p.m. Police responded to the public library, where a suspicious person had reportedly been peering into vehicles. Officers didn’t see the suspect upon arrival but were contacted by a man who said his Toyota had been prowled. The man reported two fleece blankets and some children’s clothing missing from his unlocked vehicle. No other victims were identified.


8:44 a.m. A school employee called 911 to report that a student had been picked up by a parent who was the subject of a no-contact order. An officer caught up to the woman driving on Koura Road and stopped her. There was no valid court order against the woman; however, her driver’s license had expired. She was cited, and a friend returned the child to school.

11:38 a.m. An officer working an off duty assignment on Miller Road was contacted by members of a local church who were concerned by a person acting suspiciously. They said a man had entered the church’s daycare saying he was looking for his daughter. He walked into a back room where children were watching a movie, then left abruptly. The officer advised the daycare directors to lock the doors while children are present.

1:23 p.m. A citizen turned in a bag of items she had found strewn on the roadway in the area of Ferncliff Avenue and High School Road. Items included clothing, hats, slippers, socks and pillows. Most of the items had price tags on them as though they had been purchased at a garage sale. They were entered into storage for safekeeping.

4:10 p.m. A woman said her bank account had been used for more than $1,000 in fraudulent online purchases. She said unauthorized payments had been made to the Salt River Project, T-Mobile, Home and Barrio’s Pizza. The woman’s bank was investigating the incident.

4:18 p.m. A resident reported that political signs he had placed on Bucklin Hill Road, Eagle Harbor Drive, High School Road and Blakely Avenue had been removed. Wording on the signs included “Lowe,” “Danielson” “La Celle” “Clark”, “Ishmael” “Cooney”, “$10,000 tax”, “Drill Now” “Cut COBI Staff”. The man said he had checked with the mayor’s office, public works and code enforcement but all advised they had not removed the signs. The loss was estimated at $255.


4:53 a.m. A Suquamish driver contacted during a traffic stop on High School Road was found to have an expired driver’s license as well as an outstanding warrant for drunk driving in Everett. The man was arrested.
