Bainbridge blotter | Grinch spoils Boy Scout fundraiser

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:41 a.m. Police were called to the Boy Scout Christmas tree lot on High School Road, where somebody had pried open the “honesty box” and stolen approximately $300 in cash.

The box is a small metal container mounted to the side of the Scout troop’s trailer, which allows customers to come pick a tree and pay for it after hours.

Also, the trailer itself was broken into, though nothing was stolen.

A nearby security camera was pointed in the direction of the trailer, but police found it was not functioning at the time of the theft.

The tree lot was being disassembled when police arrived and numerous people had handled the box.

There are no suspects.
