Bainbridge blotter | When a stranger comes knocking

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


1:13 pm. A 62-year-old Bainbridge man said the mailbox at his business on Madison Avenue North had been broken into over the weekend.

It was unclear what was taken. The man said other mailboxes in the vicinity were also vandalized.

A nearby business also reported stolen mail.


3:42 a.m. Police were called after a 52-year-old Bainbridge woman went onto a neighbor’s porch and started yelling.

An officer found the woman sitting on the front porch “in a state of significant inebriation.”

At her feet was a purse that contained a nearly empty vodka bottle.

Police said the woman was in violation of court conditions that prohibit her from possessing or consuming alcohol.

The case was referred to municipal court.
