Bainbridge blotter | Distracted driver lands in ditch

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Island Police Department blotter.


11:41 a.m. Police were called to a store to investigate an incidence of fraud.

The shop manager told police that several days before, a 41-year-old Bainbridge woman had come into the store and tried to pay for $98.38 of goods with a personal check.

The check was declined as the account had insufficient funds. The manager called the woman, who did not call him back. He provided documentation of the transaction and notice from the bank on the lack of funds and said the shop would not press charges if the woman came back and paid for the merchandise.

When contacted by police, the woman promised to “try to pay what she owes within five days.”

3:35 p.m. A 29-year-old Poulsbo woman was driving a 2006 Toyota Matrix north on Highway 305 when she came upon stopped traffic at the Day Road intersection. She noticed too late to stop and turned onto the shoulder to avoid hitting the car in front of her.

Doing so, the woman accidentally drove into a ditch.

She was not injured and the car, after being towed from the ditch, was not damaged.
