Police Blotter: Trespasser searching for “soul mate” terrifies island family

April 10th, 2013 by Tad Sooter


A Komedal Road resident called 911 at 3 a.m. April 9 to report an unknown person was outside his house, prying at locked doors and windows. Police searched the area and found 35-year-old Lakewood man walking nearby. The man said he tried to break into the house because his “heart” told him his “soul mate” lived there. He also admitted to using methamphetamine.

Also this week, a window was shattered at an oft-vandalized bus stop, and a texting driver rolled her car over on Torvanger Road.

The blotter is below:

April 9

Trespass: A Komedal Road resident called 911 at 3 a.m. to report an unknown person attempting to break into his house. The caller said the suspect was outside his home, prying at locked doors and windows. Police searched the area and located a 35-year-old Lakewood man walking in the near of Seabold Church Road. The man told police he’d tried to break into the home because his “heart” told him “Lindsey” lived there. The man couldn’t recall “Lindsey’s” last name, but said they’d met in “what felt like February” and he knew she was his soul mate. He had taken a 9 p.m. ferry to Bainbridge and was “following his soul” to find her. The man also admitted to injecting methamphetamine. He was speaking incoherently and said he hadn’t slept in days. The reporting resident said he didn’t know the suspect or a “Lindsey.” The resident said the encounter badly frightened his family. Police arrested the Lakewood man for trespass.

Found: A glass pipe was turned into police by a Komedal Road resident. The resident recently moved into the home and said he was aware it had been used for drug activity in the past. He found the pipe in a crawl space under the floor.

April 2

Malicious mischief: The window of a bus stop at Cosgrove Road and Wyatt Way was shattered by an unknown object. The glass pane measured 18 inches by 60 inches. Police advised Kitsap Transit of the damage. The bus stop has been vandalized several times in the past.

Fraud: A 77-year-old island woman reported an apparent fraud. She told police she had tried to sign up online for an AT&T cell phone. She entered her social security number and bank account information to complete the transaction. When she contacted AT&T by phone to see if her order was completed a representative told her the website she’d used wasn’t legitimate. Police gave the woman information on identity theft protection.

April 1

Collision: A Honda CRV veered off a dirt lane near Sands Avenue and drove onto a 2-foot-tall utility box. The 20-year-old driver couldn’t recall what caused her to swerve.

March 31

Collision: A 27-year-old driver was typing a text when she failed to negotiate a turn from southbound Sunrise Drive onto Torvanger Road. Her Saturn sedan crashed into a ditch and rolled over onto the driver’s side. The woman was not injured. Police cited her for using a cell phone while driving.
