Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.
Friday, Feb. 7
3 p.m. Police were notified of a possible mail theft from an island residence. The homeowner told police she had left her home around 11 a.m. and noticed there were items in her mailbox, but she did not get them at the time.
A few hours later, her son went to get the items and found nothing inside the mailbox. The woman noticed before leaving the house that a package she had been expecting was also in the mailbox. The contents were valued at $50.
4:03 p.m. An island resident reported he was the victim of identity theft. The resident had recently applied for a new job which required a background and credit check as the final step to be considered.
The employer notified him, however, that he did not get the job due to an adverse credit history.
When the resident ordered a copy of his credit report he found several accounts he had not authorized.

11:07 a.m. A Bainbridge woman received a harassing phone call.
The woman told police that even after repeated attempts to tell the person on the other line that they had called the wrong number, the person continued to say things like, “I’m not arguing with you, lady. You can deal with the agents when they come.”
