Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Thursday, Aug. 7

1:35 p.m. Employees at the Best Western reported that a man had entered the hotel and immediately began asking if a certain woman was staying in one of the rooms.

The employee refused to answer the question and the man became more demanding.

The man showed the employees his Texas driver’s license and said he had a Best Western Rewards card, but was irate enough that the employees were concerned for their welfare. When one of the employees called 911, the man fled west on High School Road.

Police were unable to locate the man. The employees told officers that there was no single female staying at the hotel.

Friday, Aug. 8

1:36 p.m. Someone entered a Nissan hatchback while it was parked. Papers were pulled out of the glovebox and side pockets. Nothing was found stolen.

In a report to police, the car owner said, “I guess we need to lock our cars now.”
