Police blotter: an overdose, a scratch and a few obscenities

Quiet August days and nights on the island. The blotter’s a quick read this week.

Aug. 14
Disorderly: A Madison Avenue resident reported that a man drove by her home in a jeep yelling obscenities at her and her 4-year-old son just before 6 p.m. The same man had also yelled obscenities from his jeep three days before.

Aug. 12
Suicidal: An Arrow Point Drive resident reported that his wife had intentionally overdosed on prescription medication, ingesting some 50 pills. She was under a lot of pressure at work, was drinking alcohol more than usual and had mentioned suicide about a week ago, her husband said. An aid unit from Poulsbo transported her to a hospital.

Aug. 11
Assault: A Bainbridge woman was given a domestic violence information packet after she allegedly hit, slapped, knocked down and dragged her 17-year-old daughter in their Fletcher Bay Road home. The conflict stemmed from the daughter eating some of her mother’s food. The mother and daughter told police differing versions of the story. The daughter had no visible injuries, but the mother had a scratch on her chest. The daughter agreed to spend the night at a friend’s house to ease tensions.

Theft: An iPod, speakers, an audio amplifier and several CDs were stolen from a vehicle parked at the Safeway parking lot just before 5 p.m. The victim, a Poulsbo man, estimates losses at $750.

Aug. 9
Theft: An Ohio man reported that his laptop computer was stolen from his room at a High School Road hotel at 2:30 p.m. Using electronic records of key card use, police determined that a hotel employee had entered the room around the time of the theft. The employee, a Bainbridge male, was arrested on second degree burglary charges. He was also charged for possession of drug paraphernalia during a search of his vehicle.
