Bainbridge blotter | ‘Kids!’

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


4:27 p.m. A 71-year-old Bainbridge Island man wrote to police to report someone had vandalized his property, a repeat of a similar incident that had occurred about four years before.

“We travel during the winter,” he wrote. “I have old colored glass on my porch railings that looks nice. About four years ago when we came back someone had shot their pieces of antique glass on the front rail. Pellet gun.

“Probably some scummy little kid?” the man posited. “They didn’t shoot the windows.”

The man said the shots had clearly been fired from the forested area behind his property. He’d begun taking down the glass before leaving town, but last year left one piece out.

“I figured by now the scummy little kid had gotten old enough he would no longer be shooting stuff on my porch. I was wrong.”

This time, he wrote, the shots had come from the road.
