Bainbridge blotter | Never mind

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


2:44 p.m. A 69-year-old Bainbridge Island woman appeared to have had her purse stolen from her car.

The woman reported her purse had gone missing sometime earlier in the day, while she was running errands. None of the places she’d visited had found a purse, or had one turned in to them.

The woman said her car had been locked at each stop, and there were no signs of forced entry.

She canceled the cards that been inside her purse, which also contained about $300 in cash and several pieces of ID.

A report was filed.

Later, the woman told police she’d found her purse.


6:35 p.m. A rear-end collision at the intersection of Ferncliff Avenue and Tiffany Meadows resulted in no injuries.

A Seattle woman in a 2010 Volvo had stopped at a marked crosswalk to allow a pedestrian to walk. Behind her, a 42-year-old Bainbridge Island man in a 2005 Ford Focus was “fiddling with a bag on his passenger seat” and unable to stop before colliding with the other car.
