Bainbridge blotter | Stolen mail

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


11:19 a.m. A 16-year-old Bainbridge girl, driving a 2009 Subaru Outback, drove slightly into the intersection at Highway 305 and Madison Avenue while trying to make the light before it turned red. She was backing up when she struck a 1999 Dodge Ram, which was stopped behind her.

Both vehicles were damaged but nobody was hurt.

The girl was cited for inattentive driving.


2:58 p.m. A 66-year-old Bainbridge Island man called police to report an incident of mail theft.

He and his wife, the man said, had just returned from being away on vacation and had their mail held. The post office confirmed, however, the mail had been delivered the day before their return and left on their front porch, but when they got home there was no mail.

He had no idea what mail had been stolen or who had done it.

His neighbors also had seen nothing suspicious.
