Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Monday, July 14

2:32 a.m. A resident noticed a suspicious figure standing in the bushes outside his home.

Officers were familiar with the residence since it has a history of narcotics activity, and police have arrested felons out of the house. The resident was also recently burglarized and had several firearms stolen.

The resident told police that he has not been able to sleep since. He instead waits until daylight before going to bed and is armed with a .44 Magnum. While awake through the night, the homeowner saw a person standing in front of his house wearing white and black.

He told officers that it looked like the person was wearing a clown outfit. The suspicious person then crouched behind some bushes.

Officers searched the area, but did not find anyone.

5:56 p.m. Officers received a report that a 70-year-old woman was disrupting landscapers.

While a worker was clearing the property next door, the woman kept coming out of her house and interrupting him. She complained that he was in her way or on her driveway. The worker told police that she would watch him and began taking photos of him, his equipment and landscape work.

She then accused him of watching her and looking at her, and said “any time a man looks at her it means something.”

The landscape worker became nervous and decided to have the incident documented with the police.
