Druggies ripping

off druggies

A 28-year-old Silverdale man called police at about 10 a.m. March 20 saying that he was just robbed and beaten 20 minutes earlier. The victim told a deputy he didn’t know the exact address of where the assault took place.

The man told a deputy he had been addicted to heroin and was currently taking methadone pills which he always carried in his pocket. He and a friend planned on visiting a mutual friend that day, but the woman’s 26-year-old Kingston boyfriend drove them to another house on Marmot Circle NW in Silverdale.

After about five minutes, another man started punching the victim and the Kingston man joined in. When the methadone container fell out of the man’s pocket and onto the floor, the group stopped hitting him and made him leave the home.

The victim had blood on his face and was transported to Harrison Medical Center for a possible kidney injury.

The Kingston man was arrested and booked into jail for third-degree assault and third-degree driving with a suspended license a few days after the assault. His bail is set at $10,500.

Checks magically appeared

in her house

A Central Kitsap woman called police Feb. 18 and said her Chico Beach Drive NW home had been burglarized. Taken from inside the residence were checks from her Bank of America account, personal identification, a laptop computer and her boyfriend’s personal information.

On March 4, one of the woman’s checks was forged and attempted to be cashed at a Bank of America location in Silverdale. The bank’s security cameras filmed a woman wearing a black wig, coat, sunglasses and silver-colored bandana on her head. The suspect used another woman’s personal identification card at the bank. The check was not cashed and the suspect fled Bank of America.

A deputy later identified the 26-year-old Central Kitsap woman caught on the security cameras and later learned the suspect shared a math class at Olympic College with one victim and lived near the other victim.

A deputy contacted the suspect on March 27 and she said she did not commit any burglary. She said she came home and found the checks inside her house. She said one check was filled out and there was an identification card for the same person sitting next to the checks. She said she needed money for rent and bills, so she decided to attempt to cash the check.

The woman was arrested and booked into jail for identity theft, forgery, second-degree theft, second-degree possession of stolen property and violation of the Uniformed Controlled Substance Act: possession of heroin and methamphetamine. She was later released.

The mystery box

A deputy stopped a car for an expired registration on West Camp Sundown Road and Gold Creek Road West in Central Kitsap at 1 a.m. March 25.

The 47-year-old South Kitsap driver and two female passengers were escorted out of the vehicle and the deputy located a “hard-sided blue case that was locked.” None of the passengers would claim ownership of the locked box and the deputy found a set of keys that appeared to be associated with the locked case.

A Port Orchard Police Department narcotics dog showed an interest in the locked box, so the deputies took it to the sheriff’s office as evidence.

A detective and deputy opened the locked box and found a large bag of methamphetamine, several baggies for packaging, a digital scale and other drug paraphernalia.

The 47-year-old driver was arrested and booked into jail for second-degree driving with a suspended license. A 32-year-old Bremerton passenger was arrested and booked into jail for an outstanding warrant. A report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review/filing of charges for violation of the Uniformed Controlled Substance Act: possession of methamphetamine.

Applebee’s burg

Two 25-year-old men called police at about 12:30 a.m. March 19 to report a theft from their vehicle.

The two men went to Applebee’s to eat dinner and were approached by a restaurant employee in the parking lot. The 31-year-old Applebee’s employee asked one of the men if he was interested in selling his car or trading vehicles. The two men exchanged names and phone numbers.

The two men ate dinner and went to All Star Lanes in Silverdale. When they left the bowling alley, one man realized he didn’t have his cell phone. He looked inside the car and discovered all of his tools were missing. The men went back to Applebee’s and spoke with the restaurant manager. The manager checked surveillance tape and saw his employee taking the tools from the victim’s car in the parking lot.

The Silverdale man was arrested and booked into jail for second-degree theft and six outstanding warrants. Bail is set at $10,000.
