Bainbridge blotter | The ex-girlfriend’s ‘lair’

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:49 a.m. A 44-year-old Bainbridge Island man called police to report his car — a 2014 Dodge Avenger — had been keyed.

He had not noticed the damage until he got home, the man said, though it most likely happened while his car had been parked outside Safeway, where he works. His car had been locked in a garage the day before.

The man said the most likely culprit was his ex-girlfriend, who he had broken up with the day before. She was the only one he could think of who would do such a thing.

On his car, the word “liar” had been scratched, but it was spelled “lair.”

The man said his ex “doesn’t spell too well.”

Police documented the damage. The man estimated it would cost $2,000 to have it fixed.

The accused woman did not pick up the phone when police initially called, and could not immediately be reached.

Officers would, they noted, keep trying to speak with her.

6:27 p.m. Police were summoned to Town & Country Market in downtown Winslow after store employees caught a man trying to steal two pairs of socks and also a carton of 18 large white eggs.

The man, 70, of Seattle, wrote in a statement to the market’s loss prevention officer, “I was stealing to keep warm and eat.”

Police arrived to find the man in custody of the LPO. He admitted his guilt, saying he stole the socks and food because he had no money, and was trespassed from the store after being cited and released.
