Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


9:58 a.m. The principal of Woodward Middle School called police in reference to a recent incidence of malicious mischief.

The man said that for the past three nights an unknown person had been putting posters and stickers from a company, “7Lenora,” up around the school. One sticker had been placed over a fire escape plan and he’d had to scrape it off with a razor blade. He said he’d called the company but received no response.

Police called the company and spoke with a man who said he was the owner. The man explained he gives marketing materials to “teams” to hand out in order to receive discounts. Police advised he reach out to his teams and tell them to stop disseminating the material at Woodward or he would be liable for any damages.

The man said he understood and promised to speak to his people about it.

No actual damage was reported by school officials. A report was filed.


4:10 p.m. A 27-year-old Bainbridge Island man was cited for inattentive driving after he collided into the back of a school bus.

The man was traveling north on Lynwood Center Road, just behind the school bus, which had stopped for traffic. The man said he saw the bus stop and let off the gas to slow down. He then looked away and when he looked back he was too close to avoid striking the rear of the bus.

The bus was only going about 3 or 5 mph at the time and there was no damage other than minor scrapes on the paint.

There were no injuries.
