Bainbridge blotter | Skaters go off the rail with vandalism

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

FRIDAY, JUNE 7

7:47 a.m. Police spoke with members of the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District, who reported an incident of burglary and vandalism at Strawberry Hill Park.

A portion of fence and gate around the skateboard bowl area had been damaged and destroyed. Part of the fencing had blue paint transfer on it, police noted. There was also a length, about 20 feet long, of a football field goal post on the ground nearby. It had clearly been used to skate on, police said. The park employees said kids had used it in the past, though it was now where it was not supposed to be.

There was also a drawing of sex organs on the concrete, near the goal.

Photos were taken and a report was filed.
