Reports of child neglect incident in Bremerton

An incident of child neglect by a 26-year-old Bremerton woman was reported Oct. 13.

The incident was reported taking place on 11th Street east of Naval Avenue at about 3:54 p.m. The caller said a female in a green Oldsmobile was driving with three “unrestrained children” and one of the children was hanging halfway out of the rear window, according to police reports.

A patrol check of the area from Warren to Callow avenues on 11th Street turned up negative. The woman and her vehicle were not located. The police officer ran a search of the driver’s license plate number, provided by the caller, and discovered that the 26-year-old woman has a “history of issues,” according to reports.

The officer drove to the woman’s residence and located a pickup truck with a child booster seat in the bed of the truck. The report was forwarded to child protective services.
