Bainbridge blotter | That’s just plain dirty

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

MONDAY, AUG. 6

12:42 p.m. A 53-year-old Bainbridge Island woman called police to report the apparent theft of her blue Hoover steam cleaner.

The cleaner was missing from her open air garage of her apartment, the woman said. She had last seen it about three to five days ago and estimated the value to be about $150.

She did not have a serial number for the cleaner and had no suspect information.

2:25 p.m. A 58-year-old Bainbridge Island man called police to report his neighbor had been using a leaf blower to push dirt against his home.

The man said his neighbor was deliberately blowing dirt and sticks toward his house while he was having the shingles painted. He attempted to show police video he’d shot, claiming to have caught his neighbor in the act, but could not find it.

Police then spoke to the neighbor, 49, who was mowing her lawn at the time. She told the officer she had no idea her neighbor was painting. She said her neighbor records her every time she uses the leaf blower. She said this time she’d been using the blower to clean out the flower beds because her landlord was unhappy with the condition of the yard.

The man insisted police add to the report a note about the condition of his neighbors yard, which is “brown and unkempt.” He said he believes the woman was not actually worried about the yard, but only trying to harass him.
