Police blotter: a burglary, a break-in and a false name


Quiet week on Bainbridge. Blotter’s below.

May 7
False name: A Poulsbo man was arrested for giving police a false name during questioning at the Winslow ferry terminal just after 5 p.m. Police were called to the terminal by the state patrol to detain the suspect after he harassed another passenger and made claims that he had a gun in his bag. Police grabbed and restrained the suspect as he disembarked the ferry. The suspect initially gave police a false name. Police matched the suspect’s tattoos with prior arrest records to determine his identity. They also learned he had an outstanding assault warrant stemming from an incident in Poulsbo. The state patrol booked the suspect on an additional harassment charge.

May 5
Break-in: A city vehicle parked outside City Hall was broken into sometime during the night. It appeared that the vehicle’s passenger door lock was pried open. An electronic gas card was taken.

May 4
Burglary: An Ellingsen Road home was burglarized sometime during the night or during the day when one of the residents was at work. A television, laptop computer and envelope containing an undisclosed amount of cash was missing. The residents believe they had left the front door unlocked. No signs of forced entry were found.

Break-in: A Ferncliff Avenue home was broken into but no items appear to have been taken. One of the residents said she was away from around 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. She found her garage door open and that the door between the garage and kitchen had been kicked in.

April 29
Crash: A Bainbridge man’s car was damaged when it collided with a deer on Phelps Road just before 9:30. The deer fell to the ground, but got up and left the scene in a “daze.” The car’s hood and one of its headlights were damaged.

Crash: A Bremerton woman was cited for inattention after her pickup truck struck a Bainbridge woman’s car on High School Road just after 10:15 a.m. The Bremerton driver had been making a left turn on to Weaver Road and did not see the other vehicle. Both vehicles suffered front-end damage.
