Bainbridge blotter | Car-prowling spree on South End

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


6:48 a.m. Three vehicles were broken into in the area of Pleasant Beach Drive during an overnight prowl. At least two people reported their wallets — containing driver’s licenses, cash and credit and debit cards — were stolen.

Police were called to the scene by a 46-year-old Medina woman, who said the cars had been parked at her friend’s house on Pleasant Beach Drive NE.

She told police she and some other friends had stayed overnight for a campout in the backyard of her friend’s house when an unknown person had broken into at least two, possibly three, cars, including her own.

She said she and her husband had left their wallets in their black Chevy Silverado and left it unlocked because of the relatively remote location of the house and also it was parked at the end of a long driveway.

Another guest’s car had also been unlocked and obviously riffled through, but the man said nothing was taken.

The homeowner’s car was also unlocked, though it was mostly empty and nothing appeared to have been stolen. He had, however, left the keys in the ignition and said he was thankful the thief had not stolen the entire car.

Another car parked nearby was locked and did not appear to have been tampered with.

An inventory of the stolen items and cash was recorded. Doors and door handles were dusted for fingerprints, which were collected and submitted to a crime lab to be examined.
