Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Friday, Aug. 1

1:46 p.m. More than $500 in sunglasses were stolen from an island sports store.

The store owner and an employee were busy with customers when a man described as 6-foot-2 and wearing an orange T-shirt, shorts and flip flops entered the store. By the time the store owner and employee were finished attending to other customers, the man had left the store.

Soon thereafter, the store owner looked toward the counter and saw she had left out the key to one of the display cases for the sunglasses.

Four pairs of Zeal brand sunglasses were found missing from the case. Three pairs were priced at $129 each, the fourth pair was priced at $179.

Saturday, Aug. 2

12:10 p.m. An employee at a Bainbridge winery was setting out sandwich boards advertising the business on Highway 305 when she found a wallet on the shoulder of the road.

The driver’s license belonged to a British Columbia resident.

Police called the phone number listed with the address on the ID, but it was not longer in service. Canadian law enforcement was notified.
