Bainbridge blotter | Liquor was quicker but candy was dandy
Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.
Thursday, Jan. 23
12:50 p.m. An employee at the Beach House Restaurant reported a suspicious candy had been left behind by a customer. According to the employee, a customer who she had never seen before came in around 8 p.m. and ordered takeout food and a shot of whiskey.
She described him as “acting weird.” He did not talk to anybody and walked in and out of the restaurant before ultimately leaving.
When he paid for his order, he left behind a Bacio chocolate candy at the counter. The employee noticed the candy looked as if it had been unwrapped, then rewrapped. When she unwrapped the candy to investigate, it had a small hole that she believed to be an injection hole.
Police collected the candy for investigation and found that it was just a flaw in manufacturing.

12:38 p.m. Police were called to an island apartment complex after a resident reported that her downstairs neighbors have been harassing her.
The resident told police that her neighbors have knocked on her door in the past to complain about the noise, but they have been disrespectful every time. They have gone as far as to yell at her and to throw rocks at her window from the courtyard below.
On this occasion, the resident’s front porch light fixture had been broken. She did not physically see her neighbors do it, but she said, she couldn’t imagine anyone else who might have done it.
3:47 p.m. An island resident reported a tenant of her apartment complex violated a protection order. She told police that she was with her daughter in the laundry room of the complex when the person walked past the door multiple times.
On one of these trips past the laundry room, the tenant gestured with a hand full of mail that she was just retrieving mail.
The resident, however, believed the tenant was harassing her, since the mailboxes were on the other side of the complex.
