Pair arrested by Bremerton bicycle patrol
Two Bremerton police officers working bicycle patrol discovered a 19-year-old female with a warrant walking down Willow Street. Victoria Hudson was with a male who also had a warrant out for his arrest. One of the officers “grabbed a hold of Hudson and she was placed into hand restraints,” states a supplemental report by the Bremerton Police Department. One of the officers located a zipper sunglass case in Hudson’s bag which “had a glass smoking device in it with white residue on the inside, a digital scale and two zip lock baggies in it,” states the report. The baggies had a crystal-like substance which officers thought to be methamphetamine. After testing the substance, it came back positive for meth, according to the report. Both Hudson and her walking partner, Shane Rieger, were booked into Kitsap County Jail for their warrants. Hudson was booked for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia. Her bail was set at $55,000.
70-year-old arrested on DUI charge; officer tells driver to re-park car
On Sept. 8, a driver was pulled over for driving southbound on State Road 3 in the northbound left lane. A Washington State Patrol officer flipped on his emergency lights and pulled the car over. The officer told the driver to roll down the window, but the driver “appeared confused and did not seem to know how to roll down his window,” states the report. As soon as the patrol officer yanked open the door, he noticed the smell of alcohol in the air. The driver stated, “No, I’m just going home,” to the officer after the officer told him he was facing the wrong way on the freeway. After returning to his patrol car to silence the siren, the officer noted the driver did not move. Upon returning to the driver’s window, the driver tried to hand the officer a red debit card through a closed window. “The driver hit the card against the window three times before I opened the door. The driver then began thumbing through his wallet for his license, the driver appeared to be thick fingered as he tried to locate his wallet,” states the report. The license identified the driver as 70-year-old Song U. Kim. The driver was then told to turn his vehicle around and “park in front of my vehicle,” states the report. “Song then pulled behind my vehicle and parked perpendicular to the lane of travel with half of his vehicle still in the right lane. I told Song again he needed pull in front of my vehicle and park,” states the report of investigation for DUI. “I stopped two cars so Song could back up and moved in front of my vehicle. Once Song was safely off the roadway I released the two vehicles I had stopped and contacted Song.” The officer then proceeded to ask Kim if he had been drinking, to which he responded he had three beers. The driver was asked to step out of the vehicle and meet the officer in front of the vehicle. Kim then started to move the vehicle forward. He did not park, and “looked at me with an expressionless look,” the report states. Kim moved the car forward a few more times, and in the process of trying to park, turned the windshield wipers on and left them on. The driver stumbled out of the car and after failing sobriety tests, he was placed under arrest for DUI. A breath sample registered a .153 alcohol level.
Heroin-induced man passes out behind U-Haul
Bremerton Police officers found a 55-year-old man passed out behind a U-Haul truck in an alley on Sept. 8. Upon the officer’s arrival, the man was found to have slurred speech and pinpoint pupils, generally associated with the use of heroin, according to the incident report. A Cencom check showed a “Caution DOC Felony” no bail warrant for his arrest. The warrant did not “confirm clear” because the man would be taken to Harrison Medical Center for treatment. A search of the man turned up a “4 pill bottle containing 5 packaged piece of a black tar substance,” states the report. The officer suspected the substance to be heroin, and later it weighed in at 6.1 grams. “I also located new 1 X 1- inch Ziploc baggies with black and white Panda Bear logo on them. The baggies were in three different bottles that also contained Rx pills or Heroin. Two different types of pills were located and were identified as 24 total pills of Clonazepam and 44 total pills of Alprazolam,” states the report. The officer believed the pills were for sale as the suspect did not have a prescription for the pills. He was arrested for possession of heroin with intent to deliver, possession of a CSA Schedule 4 narcotic with intent to deliver.
