Assault: A 60-year-old man and his 21-year-old son got into a fight that the mother was attempting to stop prior to the Super Bowl at a house located on the 300 block of Eakin Drive. The mother said the son and his 16-year-old brother were belittling her as she tried to prepare snacks for the game. The father told police his sons were smoking marijuana upstairs before they started mouthing off. Police determined the 21-year-old son was the primary aggressor in the altercation and placed him under arrest. He was transported to Kitsap County Jail and booked for assault in the fourth degree (domestic violence).
Found property: A 50-year-old woman found a 24-year-old woman’s coin purse on the 600 block of Winslow Way at 3:53 p.m. After police contacted the woman who had lost the purse, she picked it up at 4:30 p.m.
Burglary: A 62-year-old man living on the 15000 block of Annavera Lane reported that someone opened his garage door at 2 a.m. The man waited until the morning to check the garage. When he awoke, the homeowner found the garage door open and several beer cans strewn in the nearby bushes. The owner told police that he planned to install several motion lights after the incident. On Dec. 18, the homeowner reported to police that someone had opened his house’s front door in the middle of the night.
Miscellaneous: A 62-year-old man living on the 9000 block of Viewcrest Avenue believed that malicious mischief or attempted theft caused an open valve that resulted in a heating oil spill. The homeowner had a furnace repairman at his house on Jan. 30 and the repairman said he didn’t open the heating oil drain valve. On Jan. 18, the homeowner discovered the valve was open, resulting in a heating oil spill that the Bainbridge Fire Department and the state Department of Ecology responded to, and the city’s Public Works crew estimated was less than 200 gallons released into the stormwater drainage system.
