Bainbridge Police Blotter | Jan. 22


Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents:

Jan. 12

8:22 p.m. Police stopped a vehicle for speeding and discovered the driver had a suspended license.

An officer parked on Miller Road clocked a driver going 45 mph in a 35 mph zone. The car was registered to the mother of the passenger. The officer ran the male driver’s license and found it was suspended. The officer asked the driver if he knew about the suspension. The driver said he did, and he knew he wasn’t supposed to be driving. The passenger had an intermediate license and was not allowed to drive with non-family passengers. After citing the driver, the officer waited until his mother arrived to drive the car away.

Jan. 13

1:50 p.m. A resident reported two bikes stolen.

In October, the woman’s bike was stolen from Bainbridge High School.

In December, a second bike was stolen from the high school.

She told police she attended community events both times, and in neither instance did she lock up her bike.

Police have no suspects.

Jan. 14

2:40 p.m. Police found items containing traces of drugs.

While an officer was at the Eagle Harbor Marina, an employee brought to his attention the presence of some items containing drugs.

Inside a Tupperware container were small sandwich bags and aluminum foil. From the container, the officer smelled the odor of marijuana. He also noticed burn marks and residue on the foil, which he believed was used to burn methamphetamine.

Jan. 15

10:15 a.m. A Bainbridge resident was called by a Poulsbo business to inform her that her purse was found in the store’s parking lot.

She went to the location and recovered the purse. She said nothing was missing except $15 in cash, a small mirror and a pocket knife.

The woman told police she hasn’t been to Poulsbo recently. The closest she came was the Rolling Bay Post Office where she went to mail some checks.

She said she was in possession of her purse the night of Jan. 13. Her home showed no signs of a break-in, and no property was missing from the place.

Police have no suspects.

1:15 p.m. A man was cited for driving with a suspended license after being stopped for a traffic infraction.

The light at Madison Avenue and State Route 305 was without power at the time.

An officer saw a vehicle proceed through the uncontrolled intersection without attempting to stop. When stopped by the police, the man was aware of his violation and apologized.

A license check revealed that the man’s license was suspended in November for an unpaid parking ticket.

The man said he made a recent payment to the Department of Licensing, which should have reinstated his license. He could show no proof to the police. The man was cited for driving with a suspended license and issued a Feb. 15 court date.

Jan. 17

4 p.m. A resident reported her vehicle had been vandalized.

She said she drove her Volvo to work around 11 a.m. the day before. She left at 5 p.m. and went straight home.

When she arrived, she noticed someone had keyed the passenger side of the vehicle. She said the marks weren’t there when she left for work. While at work, she noticed a few children walking around, but nothing suspicious.

An officer noticed a scratch mark that went from the passenger front fender back to the rear door.

Police have no suspects.
