Bainbridge blotter | Angry ‘Texas Momma’

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


4:32 p.m. The Bainbridge Island School District received a threatening letter from an unknown person calling herself “Texas Momma.”

A district representative called the police to report the letter. It was typed, and admonished the district for the manner in which it spends money.

It was the last paragraph specifically which alarmed school officials. It stated that district officials would be “dragged into the street, stripped naked and getting lynched.”

The return address on the envelope was in Tacoma.


11 p.m. A 25-year-old Port Townsend woman reported her ex-boyfriend had come to her parent’s Bainbridge Island home seeking to speak with her, despite having been told not to contact her anymore.

The man, 32, came by to drop off some of the woman’s belongings without calling first and then refused to leave.

The couple began to argue, the woman said, until she told him she was calling the police and he left.
