Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 14
9:45 a.m. Police were called to a minor car collision in a parking lot on Ericksen Avenue.
A Poulsbo man driving a 2015 Ram truck was backing up from a parking spot and did not see a 2013 Chevy pulling into the lot behind him. The truck sheared the hood of the other vehicle, damaging the grill and headlight assembly. As the incident occurred on private property, no tickets were issued.
3:24 p.m. A 51-year-old Bainbridge Island man called police to report the theft of some checks.
He’d ordered new checks from his bank, he said, in October and, as it had taken them longer than usual to arrive, called to verify they’d been sent. The bank told him that he should have received them by now. Assuming they were lost, the man canceled payment on all the checks.
About two weeks ago, the man said, he’d received a call from his bank that one of his checks had been made out to a Money Tree in Bellevue. The bank did not honor the check and no money was issued. It was unclear if the checks were stolen from the man’s mailbox or while in transit.
