Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


4:32 p.m. An island resident found some apparently abandoned mail on the southwest side of the Bergman Road-Peterson Hill Road intersection.

The mail, about 13 pieces from at least two different addresses, was taken to the police station.

There are no suspects at this time.


10:15 a.m. A 37-year-old Bainbridge Island man was found to be violating a protection order by posting derogatory information about another island man on his social media account.

The subject of the unkind posts informed police the other man was violating the order, after having reported the posts upon first discovering them.

Police verified the order had been served, then checked the social media feed in question to find the posts still present. In them, he refers to the other man as a “child abuser,” a “wife beater” and an “alcoholic.”

Copies of the posts and the police report were forwarded to the prosecutor for charging.
