Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:
Tuesday, Sept. 17
2:22 p.m. A domestic dispute took place at an island residence after an argument over missing property broke into a physical confrontation. One of the residents told officers he had just come inside from cutting flowers for his mother when her boyfriend began arguing with him over missing property. The resident had the flowers in one hand and a knife he had used to cut them in his other hand.
The boyfriend, who had just been released from jail the day before, pushed the resident several times and began chest bumping him. At one point the boyfriend head-butted him and asked, “What you going to do, stab me?” The resident responded no. His mother witnessed the incident and told officers that the knife was never used in a threatening manner and her boyfriend had instigated the confrontation. Officers noted there was still dirt and plant remnants on its blade.
The boyfriend was the one who called 911, and he said it was for revenge since the resident had called police on him previously. The boyfriend was arrested for fourth-degree assault.

11:57 a.m. A woman came to the police station to turn in drugs she found in her home. The woman told officers that two movers from a moving company had recently helped move two chairs into the house. She later found a Ziploc bag that contained a clear solid substance in the bedroom of her house. It is uncertain whether the movers played a role in the found drugs, but police tested it positive as methamphetamine.
Tuesday, Sept. 24
10:58 a.m. An island resident contacted police after discovering medications missing from her home. The resident told police that she and a neighbor were involved in a lengthy dispute. Among other things, the neighbor had accused her of slashing the neighbor’s tires. In turn, the resident explained that the neighbor shouts obscenities every time they see each other. The resident has petitioned for a civil lawsuit to have a restraining order. However, the resident explained that due to their neighbor disputes she has developed anxiety and is constantly aware of anything strange happening. On Sept. 20, she took her required medication of Methadone and Clonazapam. The following day, the medication was not where she left them. She and her daughter searched the home and could not find them. Officers could not find any signs of forced entry. A police report was made upon the resident’s request so that she could obtain a new prescription from her doctor.
