Bainbridge blotter | Sorry, bro

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


2:17 a.m. A 16-year-old Bainbridge Island girl drove a 2017 Jeep Cherokee off the road, striking two mailboxes and a power pole, on Grand Avenue.

She was not injured.

The pole was split and resting against the front of the jeep. The girl was checked by medical responders and then taken home to her parents.

Puget Sound Energy was alerted about the pole.

The owner of the mailboxes was told what happened. No estimate for the cost of the damage was immediately available.

5:40 p.m. An employee of a downtown Winslow business reported his car had been vandalized while at work. He told police that during his shift he’d received a call from his brother asking for money, a request he refused.

When he left work he found the driver’s side mirror on his vehicle damaged. He suspected his brother, who lives in a tent, he said, at Fay Bainbridge Park.

Police searched the park but could not locate the man’s brother.

A report was filed.
