Bainbridge blotter | Unwelcome squatter

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

TUESDAY, JULY 24

2:20 p.m. A Bainbridge homeowner contacted police to report an illegal squatter on his property. The man said he’d told the squatter, who was also hooked up and using his power, to leave.

Police met with the trespasser, 37, who said he was under the impression he had the permission of the landowner to camp there. In truth, it was another man who had once lived there who had given him permission to stay, not the actual homeowner.

The man said he’d only just learned that the property owner wanted him gone, and he was already packing up his campsite and was in the process of removing his trailer.

The property owner said it was OK if the other man left by the end of the day so long as he understood was not to return for any reason.

Police relayed the message, which the camper said he understood.
