Bainbridge blotter | Won’t make that same mistake again

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26

4:03 p.m. A chief official of the Bainbridge Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale reported an event banner, 3-feet by 20-feet long, had been taken from where it was placed in the field at the southeast corner of the Day Road and Highway 305 intersection.

The sign was valued at about $200.

The official said he’d already contacted other key volunteers and found nobody had moved it.

There are no suspects.

THURSDAY, JUNE 27

11:45 a.m. A 21-year-old Bainbridge Island man was cited for leaving the scene of a crash when, while driving a 1999 Chrysler Town & Country minivan at the intersection of High School Road and Highway 305, he struck the rear of a 2003 BMW X5, driven by a 16-year-old Bainbridge boy.

The teenager pulled over to the side of the road, but the older man drove by and continued on without stopping, but not before the teen noted the license plate number.

The younger man’s vehicle suffered minor scuffs and abrasions to its rear bumper.

Police ran the license plate and learned the identity of the 21-year-old. They went to his house, where the man said he knew why the police wanted to speak with him. He said he had hit another car while driving, but when the other driver pulled over and waved, he thought he was being dismissed, like the other man was saying everything was fine.

He admitted he should have stopped and apologized, and promised to not make that mistake again.

The younger driver was not interested in pursuing criminal charges.
