Bainbridge blotter | Wanted man drops his drugs

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

FRIDAY, AUG. 16

8:50 a.m. A 36-year-old Suquamish man was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, use of drug paraphernalia and a dangerous weapon violation after a series of interactions with island police and firefighters that began with a call for help because he believed himself to be stuck under a vehicle at Eagle Harbor Marina.

The person who called police was uncertain how the man had come to be stuck under the vehicle, but he was yelling for help.

Upon arrival, firefighters told police the man was out from under the car (he’d apparently been trying to change a tire) and was uninjured, so they could disregard the call.

Later, firefighters asked the police to return because they’d found a bag of what they believed to be meth next to where the man had been lying.

The man and several friends were trying to leave in the car, which still had a flat tire.

Police stopped them from departing and eventually ascertained the identify of the man. He had warrants for his arrest, a pipe and a switchblade in his pockets.

A DUI warrant from Kitsap County was extraditable, and he was ultimately arrested and and taken to the Kitsap County Jail without incident.
