Bainbridge blotter | A stranger at the door

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


12:57 p.m. A 60-year-old Bainbridge Island woman told police that sometime during the night somebody had thrown a piece of slate rock through the windshield of her car.

The rock was a part of her landscaping, she said. When asked, she told police she’d had no issues with anybody recently and her car had been parked off the road, in her driveway.

A report was filed.

8:26 p.m. Police were called to a home on Pinyon Drive to investigate a suspicious person on the property.

The homeowner said a strange man had come to the door and rung the bell. The home has a video surveillance camera connected to the owner’s phone. He recorded the man and spoke to him through the phone. Asked for by name, the homeowner admitted his identity and told the stranger, who was holding a white envelope he said was for the resident, to leave it under the mat and he would get it later. The man appeared to bend down to place the letter there, but did not leave it. Soon after, he left still holding the letter.

The homeowner told police he was in a custody dispute with his wife. Police said the stranger was probably a process server trying to delivery a legal document.

A report was filed.
