Woman hides under house from police

A woman with five different aliases and ties to a stolen vehicle case was arrested on Sept. 22 and booked into the Kitsap County Jail.

The transient woman was walking down the street and panicked upon seeing an officer drive past her.

According to a Bremerton Police Department incident/investigation report, the suspect “took off running, flailing her hands in the air as if panicked.”

After losing sight of her, other units arrived in the area after discovering the woman had a warrant for her arrest.

Upon searching the area, a home owner indicated the woman might be under her home.

Items the woman was wearing and carrying earlier were hidden just inside the entrance of the crawl space beneath the house.

An officer identified himself to the woman and told her to come out.

“I crawled on my hands and knees all the way to the back of the house where I located some pink shoes buried under some insulation and black plastic,” states the report.

The officer drew his weapon and told the woman she was under arrest.

The female crawled out from under the house and was arrested and informed of her rights and warrants.

The female started crying and stated she “was born a drug user,” states the report. Items removed from the purse included a glass tube with a “black and white substance inside it.”

The officer recognized it as a methamphetamine pipe, and testing upon arrival at the central office confirmed the substance.

The female was booked for “taking a motor vehicle without permission in the second degree…obstructing a law enforcement officer and possession of methamphetamine,” stated the report.

Man throws vacuum at his mother who called him “lazy”

An 18-year-old man was arrested for assault after he threw a vacuum at his mother.

On Sept. 20, police went to a Silverdale residence after a caller reported that the man had thrown the vacuum cleaner at her relative. Two deputies arrived on scene to gather information about the event.

The victim was helped into a chair by relatives after stating she felt dizzy after being assaulted. The woman told officers she asked her son to do housework and that he was being “lazy,” states a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office incident/investigation report.

The female walked away from her son down to “the lower level of the three story house. There were approximately seven steps down from the foyer area. When she got to one of the lower steps she was suddenly hit on the backside by a carpet cleaner,” states the report.

The victim told officers she felt dizzy and had “pain on the entire left side of her body,” the report states.

The officer noted a few abrasions and a small, bleeding cut, but did not notice much more.

The officer was told by the victim that she suffers from MS and lupus, making the hit much more difficult for her.

Upon interviewing the man, he stated that, “he has been trying to deal with an anger problem.” When asked if he meant to hurt his mother or just did it out of anger, the man responded he “threw it out of anger,” states the report.

His bail is set at $5,000.

Silverdale man pulled over for driving without a plate; leads to methamphetamine

On Sept. 23, the driver of  a blue Chevrolet Blazer was pulled over for driving without a rear license plate.

Upon investigation, the officer discovered the driver could only provide a Washington State ID card.

The 38-year-old male’s driving status had been revoked on March 22, 2009, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s report.

The man was placed under arrest and a search turned up a small Ziploc baggie with a “crystal-like substance in it” and a “glass pipe wrapped up in a red bandana,” states the report.

The officer recognized the substance and pipe as a device used to smoke methamphetamine.

The driver was read his Miranda Rights and booked for possession of methamphetamine and driving with a suspended license, first degree.

His bail is set at $30,000.
