Bainbridge blotter | Noisy fish fountain
Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.
Saturday, Sept. 22
10:33 p.m. A resident on Foster Road called police because his neighbor had a loud fish fountain. He said that the sound of the fountain was keeping his wife up at night. Police could hear the sound of the fountain and a low hum of a pump from the man’s backyard.
Police contacted the fountain owner who said the fountain is an ongoing issue with his neighbor, but the city’s code enforcement came to his home a year ago and said the fountain was fine. He said he could not turn the fountain off at night because it would cause the filter to back up and flood his neighbor’s yard. A police report was forwarded to code enforcement.
2:59 a.m. A resident on Capstan Drive called police after his car alarm went off. He found a door open on his truck, but nothing was taken.
