Bainbridge blotter | Evidence of tampering

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:48 a.m. Police were called to Olympic Terrace where a resident claimed his vehicles had been damaged by a vandal.

The man said that on the previous day he’d found a five-gallon bucket and hosing next to his vehicles, an SUV and RV. He found the gas cap was missing from the SUV and seemed loose on the RV as well. Later that day, he said he placed locking fuel caps on both vehicles, but searched and found nothing else suspicious.

The next day he inspected them again and found a black hat, small flashlight and black cloth nearby. Both fuel caps were still in place and there was no evidence of tampering.

Later that day, while driving to an appointment, the man said gasoline was pouring from under the SUV. He inspected it and found a hose shunted into the fuel line and tucked in the wheel well.

The man said he didn’t want to press charges but did want the incident documented in case a pattern emerges and further damage is done.
