Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Thursday, May 8

1:01 p.m. A generator at a downtown animal clinic was stolen. The generator was kept in the fenced-in yard attached to the back of the clinic. The gate to the yard was padlocked.

The generator was last seen April 19. Employees said they noticed it was missing two days later, April 21, when the gate was found wide open and the padlock gone.

Monday, May 5

11:32 a.m. A car prowl occurred sometime between May 2 and 11 a.m. May 5.

The owner of the vehicle told police that a SnapOn wrench valued at $200 and a Power Probe 3 electrical measuring device valued at $150 were both taken from his car. No windows were broken. The owner believed that someone may have jimmied the door.

3:37 p.m. Police were dispatched to a residence after a possible burglary attempt. The homeowner was working from home when he heard footsteps on his front porch and his dog started barking.

The resident thought it was a delivery man since his wife receives UPS packages regularly. By the time the resident put a leash on his dog and turned off his home security alarm to open the front door, there was no one on the front porch.

No UPS package was left on the doorstep either. There were, however, wet footprints.
