Bremerton police patch.
“Tweeker stuff.” A witness declined to
talk to police about a theft case because, in her words, she did
not want to get involved in said “tweeker stuff.” That incident,
and the rest of your weekly police blotter, is below.
Theft of money, 1700 Fourth Street: A man reported to
police June 10 that his “money box” containing about $1,200, was
taken by someone he thought was a friend. A neighbor said she’d
actually seen a man emerge from the victim’s home concealing a
box-shaped item. Police caught up to the “friend” and other
acquaintances on Burwell Street. Inside a sock worn by the “friend”
was all of the money. It was given back to the victim and the
“friend” was taken to the Kitsap County Jail.
Union issue, 2500 Cherry Avenue: Police were called
June 10 to Harrison Medical Center for two women refusing to leave
the cafeteria. Police learned that the women came there often on
union business but had not alerted the hospital administration of a
union meeting, which is apparently required. Police asked that the
women leave and they did.
Unlawful bus conduct, 1500 13th Street: Police were
called June 10 to a Kitsap Transit bus with an unruly passenger.
The man appeared drunk and was being loud and obnoxious, even
threatening other passengers with assault, police said. He told
police he’d just had a death in the family. Police said his
behavior was erratic. He was taken to Harrison Medical Center —
where he’d just been trespassed from for stealing food earlier in
the day — for treatment of a foot wound, and then booked into
Dumpster diving, 4200 Wheaton Way: Police saw a man
going through a dumpster behind Goodwill June 10. He said he was
“scrounging.” Police confirmed he didn’t have permission; but he
said no one had told him he couldn’t “dumpster dive.” The officer
told him he needed to move along. The man did, but argued he wasn’t
doing anything wrong.
Resisting arrest, 3200 Wright Avenue: Police went to
an address on the avenue June 11 looking for a man wanted by Mason
County authorities for missing a court date in a felony case. When
they found the man, he made a run for it, jumping a fence right
into blackberry bushes. Officers followed. He fought his arrest and
was “screaming insults” that police had it in for him because he’d
been acquitted of a murder. Police were unfamiliar with the case.
The man, as well as the officers, were scratched up and bruised
from attempting to get the man into custody. He was taken to
Harrison Medical Center before he was transported to jail.
Theft, 200 First Street: Police were told that a man
had just stolen an iPad from her and was now on the Bremerton ferry
to Seattle June 11. Police held the boat and located the suspect on
the boat. He had the iPad with him. Officers learned the suspect is
a drug addict and believed he’d taken it from a recovering drug
addict who’d allowed the suspect to stay with her. The suspect told
police a story about how he thought it was someone else’s iPad. A
third person, who’d driven the two from Sequim to Bremerton, told
police she did not want to get involved with what she called
“tweeker stuff.” The man was taken to the Kitsap County Jail.
Theft of a bicycle, 1400 Park Avenue: A man reported
his BMX bike was stolen while he was in CJ’s General Store at
Evergreen-Rotary Park June 12. Police have no suspects.
Burglary, 6000 Harlow Drive: A woman reported that
she’d come home June 12 to find her bathroom window forced open and
her jewelry box missing from her bedroom. Police are still
investigating the break in.
Hit and run, 3800 Kitsap Way: Officers June 12 were
called to the scene were a motorist had struck a pedestrian near a
gas station. The driver reportedly fled the scene. A woman suffered
multiple abrasions after being struck by a car in her left leg and
being thrown onto the car’s hood. She said the driver, who was on
his cell phone, stopped but then drove off. Police got the license
plate and found the driver, who said he’d gotten scared of being
assaulted by the woman’s boyfriend, who’d started yelling at him
following the collision. Police sent a report to t a report to the
Bremerton City Attorney’s Office for possible charging.
Burglary, 1000 Callahan Drive: A woman reported
waking up June 12 to find a strange man in her home. She screamed
and he ran out of the house. She told officers he hadn’t taken
anything of value. The suspect evidentially left his shoes behind,
as well as a credit card with a name that might be associated with
the suspect, police said. Officers continue to investigate the
Found with drugs, 300 West Street: Bremerton police
were called into the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard to assist with a
case June 12. Authorities there said a couple were “acting
suspiciously” inside a Naval store, and may have been shoplifting.
When they were searched, officers found drug paraphernalia and a
few grams of meth and heroin. They were taken to jail.
Burglary, 4300 Kitsap Way: A woman called to say the
garage where she lives, modified to be a residence, was broken into
June 12. A blu-ray player, laptop and DVDs were taken. Police are
Shoplifting, 4100 Kitsap Way: A woman at Rite Aid
allegedly put a bottle of vodka in her purse June 13 and took it to
the bathroom, where store security could hear her trying to remove
the bottle’s security device. The woman admitted to stealing the
liquor and said it was because her friend was throwing a party. She
was released by police but a report of the case was sent to the
Bremerton City Attorney’s Office for charging.
Shoplifting, 300 Callow Avenue: A store owner said
four men came into her store June 13 and took a video game by
removing the disc from the box it came in. The store is reviewing
security footage as police continue their investigation.
Threats with a stick, 900 Callow Avenue: Police were
called to Safeway June 13 for a man who was waving around a large
stick and threatening shoppers — including ones with children — in
the parking lot. He was found a 7-Eleven and taken to the Kitsap
County Jail. He’s also been trespassed from Safeway.
Driving while intoxicated, 1700 Sheridan Road: An
officer stopped a car June 14 for going 37 mph in a 25 mph zone.
The driver had watery and bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and
smelled of alcohol, police said. She took field sobriety tests and
blew a .10 blood alcohol level, more than the state’s .08 legal
limit for driving. She was taken to the Kitsap County Jail.
Car theft, 4900 Auto Center Way: A woman reported her
car stolen from her residence June 15. Police got the description
and quickly found the car, and its driver, on the 2000 block of
Sixth Street. The driver said he had permission and that he and the
owner had spent the night together; the owner begged to differ,
saying she’d given the man a ride a few times but that she had a
boyfriend and he was at her residence. The driver was taken to jail
on suspicion of stealing the car. When he was informed bail was set
at $25,000, “he laughed and said he would be home before me.”
Domestic assault, 500 South Constitution Avenue:
Police responded to a residence June 15 where a woman had allegedly
been punched by her mother-in-law. Officers found that things had
been “brewing” inside the house for sometime and when the suspect
mother-in-law was found smoking — forbidden under house rules due
to children living there — an argument ensued. A punch was thrown
by the mother in law, causing redness on the alleged victim’s
cheek. The alleged victim may have had a game counsel in her hand
during the fight but police do not think she used it as a weapon.
The mother-in-law was taken to jail.
The police blotter is compiled from the reports
