Bainbridge blotter | U made a mistake

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


9:15 a.m. An unknown person broke two windows at a construction site on Morning Lane.

Police were shown the windows, which had been in the victim’s garage waiting to be installed. They appeared to have been broken by a blunt object or rock, though no such items were found.

The owner believed the windows to be worth about $2,500.

Police canvassed the neighborhood and spoke to other residents but nobody reported seeing anything suspicious.

A report was filed.


5:42 p.m. A 19-year-old Bainbridge Island man, driving a 1998 Toyota Tacoma, struck a 2019 Chevy Impala driven by a 27-year-old Seattle man who was attempting to make a U-turn on Fletcher Bay Road, near the intersection of High School Road.

The Seattle man had pulled onto the northbound shoulder and, believing the road was clear, began to make a U-turn. He did not see the approaching Toyota and the Bainbridge man was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.

There were no injuries.
