Police blotter: Fight over pie turns into a beating with apples

An argument this week over pie-making turns into a beating with apples and fists. A pair of glasses and an iPod are among the casualties.

Jan. 8
Assault: A Bainbridge female was arrested for assaulting a male family member at an Old Mill Road residence just before 9:30 p.m. According to witnesses, the two had initially argued over a kitchen mess related to pie-making. The conflict escalated into theft accusations, apple-throwing and the damaging of the suspect’s iPod music player. The pair began “grappling on the floor,” pulling hair and punching each other in the head. The suspect’s glasses were broken and she suffered a swollen wound on her forehead. The victim suffered a wound above an eye. Neither wounds required medical attention. Police decided to arrest the suspect after it was determined she started the fight. She was transported to the county jail.

Theft: Vehicle registration and insurance information were reported stolen from an unlocked vehicle on Manzanita Lane just before 9:30 a.m.

House fire: Police were called to assist firefighters with a house fire on Skogen Lane shortly after 1:30 p.m. The fire was extinguished by 4:20 p.m. The cause of the fire has not been determined, but police have ruled out arson. No one was injured, and the 70-year-old house’s residents were not at home when the fire began. The owners told police they would stay at friends’ homes.

Crashed: An unknown person drove a vehicle into a garage door outside a Spargur Loop Road home just before 11 p.m. and quickly left the scene. The home’s resident saw a blue or black truck pulling away after hearing a loud crash in the vicinity of her garage. She did not have her glasses on and could make out few details. No evidence was left at the scene. Damages were estimated at $1,000. Police noted they had received other calls about similar garage door collisions around the same time period.

Jan. 7
Theft: A Madison Avenue school’s staff reported that $200 in cash was stolen from a money box in a locked file cabinet sometime during the school’s winter break closure. Police found no signs of forced entry into the building. The cabinet was slightly damaged. “The location was not ransacked, indicating that the suspect knew the location of the money box,” police said. No other items were reported stolen. Laptops, musical instruments and several other valuable items were undisturbed. Police suspect a school employee may have committed the theft.

  1. Holy Cow!! We Islanders need to deport these two Old Mill Rd. residents to Bremerton or Port Orchard ASAP.
