Bainbridge blotter | BB gun damage

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


12:59 p.m. A traffic emphasis was requested for the area on Fort Ward Hill Road between the 1400 and 1600 blocks. Regular, excessive speeding was cited as a concern by a local resident.


8 a.m. Two unknown vandals shot out the windows of a construction excavator with a BB gun at a construction site near the intersection of Lynwood Center Road and Fletcher Bay Road.

The damage had been noted by a worker at the site upon arriving in the morning.

Investigating, police found two sets of footprints leading from the entrance of the site to the excavator. Photographs were taken.

Workers have reportedly seen kids in the area setting of fireworks and “hanging around.”

The development company had not called the police about previous instances of trespassing, as nothing was damaged or stolen.

A report was filed.
