Sheriff’s deputies responded to a trespass call at the Girl Scouts building in the 1600 block of NE Winters Road in East Bremerton around 10:30 a.m. May 11. The reporting person said two men were camping on the Girl Scouts property.
The 17-year-old and 21-year-old man told the deputy they were just packing up their stuff and leaving the property. The 17-year-old said he was homeless and had been allowed to camp there when a church owned the property. The deputy left and the reporting person called back five minutes later saying items were missing from the Girl Scouts building.
The deputy spoke to a man who lives behind the Girl Scouts building and the man discovered he was missing several items from his garage including an air compressor, fabric chairs, fishing poles, a saw and golf clubs.
The 17-year-old said he was sorry and he stole the goods because he needed money and food. He was arrested and booked into juvenile detention for second-degree burglary and second-degree possession of stolen property. The 21-year-old was arrested and booked into jail on the same charges. He was later released.
