Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Wednesday, Nov. 20

12:24 p.m. A resident reported his bank card had been compromised after he found that a Hamilton Beach mixer had been purchased online for $209.

Upon further investigation, the resident told police that he also discovered that UPS had delivered the item to his home but it had been intercepted by another person who stood near his residence.

Police called UPS and spoke to a representative. The representative found the listed item was actually delivered to a Louisiana address.

The case has been forwarded to the Shreveport, Louisiana Police Department.

Friday, Nov. 22

2:21 p.m. Police were advised of possible mail theft from a Meadowmeer Lane residence. The resident told police that he had not been receiving his mail for approximately two weeks.

He went to the post office with the idea that some other logistical problem was preventing his mail from arriving. However, he was told that his mail had been delivered as usual.

He later mailed a letter to himself to see if it would arrive. It did not.

The resident has put a stop on his mail until he establishes an acceptable alternative location to receive mail.
