Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Saturday, April 5

11:48 p.m. Jewelry was reported stolen from a Meadowmeer residence. The homeowner lives alone and had been out of town for a couple days.

When she returned, she found a sliding glass door to the residence was unlocked and items stolen. She told police that she locked the house prior to leaving. Also, she told police she had an electrician do some work at her house just hours before she left town.

Of the items stolen, she discovered a gold charm bracelet with several gold charms on it missing. It was valued at $7,500. An amethyst pendant and earrings were also taken. These were valued at $1,000.

Wednesday, April 2

4:57 p.m. A man was on his way home from the bus stop when an orange Ford F-150 sped past him. As the truck passed by, the man gave the driver a “questioning shrug.”

At this, the driver stopped the truck, got out and asked, “You got a problem?” The man was not sure what the driver was going to do, so he pulled out his cell phone, took a photo and told the driver he was going to report him.

The driver got back in his truck and left. The man told police that when he got out of the bus the next day, however, the driver was in the woods nearby. He followed the man walking home.

Later that same day, the driver drove in front of the man’s home, stopped momentarily and squealed his tires past the house. Police contacted the driver who lives a block over, and were told that he was just walking home when he was following the man from the bus stop.

The driver did not admit to stopping his truck in front of the man’s house. Police told him that driving past the man’s house was borderline stalking and harassment.
