Bainbridge blotter | Missing wallet, passport

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 10

12:44 p.m. Bainbridge police were informed of some mail found by the Suquamish Tribal Police on the ground near NE Columbia Street.

Many of the parcels had been opened and all of them were saturated with rain. Some had been addressed to Suquamish residents, but many of the parcels were addressed to Bainbridge residents.

The mail was turned over to the post office, and police are contacting the victims to let them know about the theft.

FRIDAY, JAN. 12

8:29 p.m. A theft may or may not have occurred near Blackbird Bakery in downtown Winslow.

An 85-year-old Bainbridge Island woman called police to report that her friend’s wallet, phone keys and passport had been stolen from inside his jacket by a man who had offered to watch those things while her friend was taken to the hospital following a medical emergency.

The woman’s friend was taken by ambulance to the hospital, and a man the woman did not know offered to watch his things while she saw he got onboard OK. She got her friend’s coat and was driven by some friends, in her car, to the hospital. Later, at home, she and her friends searched the coat for the items, which she was “somewhat sure” her friend kept on him, and could not locate them. They also checked her car.

The woman called the hospital to see if her friend had the items with him, but while the first nurse she spoke to said that he did, the second said he did not.

The woman said she had not searched the bakery and could not remember if the man who offered momentarily to hold her friend’s coat had still been inside when she returned for it.
