The telltale tat
A sheriff’s deputy was traveling southbound on State Highway 303 around 4:30 p.m. April 2 when he saw and heard a car with a modified exhaust.
He activated his lights and the car pulled into a parking lot in front of Burger King.
The deputy asked the driver for his driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance. The deputy ran the 22-year-old South Kitsap man’s information and discovered he had a no contact order issued with a 16-year-old girl as the protected person.
The deputy noted in his report that the female in the front passenger seat looked about 16 years old. He asked her for identification and she said she didn’t have any, but gave the deputy a false name and birthdate.
The girl matched the physical description of the protected person right down to the tattoo on her left hand.
The girl also was listed to have a warrant for her arrest and listed as a missing person.
The man told the deputy he saw the girl in an apartment and she wanted a ride, so she jumped into his car and he decided to drive her home.
The girl was arrested and booked into juvenile detention for making a false or misleading statement.
The man was arrested and booked into jail for violation of a no contact order. His bail is set at $10,000.
A sheriff’s deputy was sitting inside his patrol vehicle on National Avenue at G Street in Navy Yard City around 1:30 a.m. March 26 when he saw a Bremerton Police officer turn his patrol vehicle around. The Bremerton Police officer said over the radio frequency that he thought he had a vehicle attempting to ditch him. The vehicle was last reported driving northbound on State Highway 3 from Loxie Eagans Boulevard in Bremerton.
The Bremerton Police officer next broadcast across the radio that the vehicle was stopping at the pedestrian overpass that connects the Westpark neighborhood with the Auto Center Way area. The men inside the vehicle then switched drivers.
The men were taken out of the vehicle and everyone stood at the back of the vehicle for a few moments. A vehicle then drove past and struck the Bremerton Police officer’s patrol vehicle, causing debris to fly into the air. No one was injured and two Washington State Patrol troopers chased down and stopped the vehicle who hit the police car.
The deputy asked the 18-year-old Poulsbo man why he switched places with the driver and he said he was the only one inside the car with a valid driver’s license and he didn’t want his friend to get in trouble.
The two men were turned over to Bremerton Police and transported to jail.
A sheriff’s deputy was parked in the parking lot of the old Tracyton Elementary School in East Bremerton around 2 a.m. March 24 when he heard a vehicle approaching on Tracyton Boulevard followed by popping sounds and a thumping noise he believed to be someone firing a paintball gun.
The deputy pulled out of the parking lot and saw two paintball markings on a crosswalk sign across from the school parking lot. He followed the SUV that drove by and stopped it at Tracyton Beach Road NW and Hansberry Street NW.
The two 19-year-old East Bremerton men admitted they had a paintball gun and a large bag of green paintballs inside the vehicle. One man said he shot several signs along Tracyton Boulevard and other side roads.
The deputy confiscated the paintball gun and let the men leave.
No arrests were made and a report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review/filing of charges.
