Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Tuesday, June 10

10:46 a.m. Clothes were stolen from a laundromat dryer. The owner of the clothing had left five dryers running while she vacuumed her car out at a nearby carwash.

She returned about 10 minutes later to find one of the dryer doors open. When she looked, the dryer had been emptied.

Two pairs of jeans, two pairs of exercise pants, two jackets and some shirts were taken.

4:20 p.m. Someone stole a cell phone from an office building sometime after June 6.

Per Sprint phone records, the phone has been in constant use for both incoming and outgoing calls.

Thursday, June 12

12:26 a.m. A suspicious person was seen standing on the porch of a house on North Madison Avenue in the middle of the night. The homeowner told police her 12-year-old son was sleeping on the couch in the living room when the family dog began barking.

The son looked out the window and saw a man standing on the front porch. He was holding a flashlight in one hand and what looked like a silver handgun in the other hand.

The man fled from the house and the son could not give any physical description.
