Bainbridge blotter | Dude, where’s my car?

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


4:36 p.m. Police were called to the scene of a two-car crash at the intersection of Madison Avenue and Wyatt Way.

A 68-year-old Bainbridge Island man, driving a 2007 Nissan Murano, had been headed north on Madison and stopped for traffic at the intersection. The car behind him, a 1992 Jeep Cherokee, driven by a 39-year-old Poulsbo man, struck the rear of his vehicle, unable to stop in time.

There were no reported injuries.

9:48 p.m. A 36-year-old Bainbridge Island man called police when a friend of his who he had loaned his mother’s car to did not return it.

The friend had agreed to drive the car to Poulsbo and then immediately return, but hours passed and he did not show. The islander tried to call his friend many times, finally alerting police to the possible theft.

The police could find no record of the friend having been in an accident, and said that it would actually have to be the man’s mother to file a theft report, as it was her car.

At about 11:15 a.m. the next day, the man called police to inform them the car had been returned and he desired no more contact about the issue.
