‘Dumd’ vandal

A 22-year-old Bremerton woman contacted the sheriff’s office shortly before 4:30 p.m. May 14 to report vandalism to her vehicle.

The woman said she parked her silver car in the parking lot of her apartment complex, located in the 1600 block of West Admiralty Heights Lane in Bremerton, the night before and when she went out to her car that morning, someone had used a sharp object and keyed “(expletive deleted) you dumd (expletive deleted)” on the trunk area of the vehicle.

Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $620.

Where am I?

A Washington State Patrol trooper and sheriff’s deputy responded to the Silverdale Wendy’s restaurant around 2:30 a.m. May 16 for a man passed out in a truck in the restaurant’s drive-through. He reportedly had been there for 30 minutes and the drive-through window was closed.

The trooper and deputy saw the 21-year-old Silverdale man sleeping in the truck, which was sitting at the drive-through speaker. His head was hanging down and he was drooling.

The trooper turned off the truck from the passenger side of the vehicle. When the man woke up, he attempted to put the truck in gear and drive off, but the engine was not running.

The man tried to exit the vehicle while still buckled in his seat belt and, after several tries, he eventually got out of the truck. The man then opened the truck’s bed cover and when the trooper asked him why he did that, he said he didn’t know.

The trooper then asked the man if he knew where he was. The man said he was on Wheaton Way in Bremerton.

The trooper and deputy found a half-empty beer bottle inside the truck and a couple small bags of marijuana in the man’s pants pockets.

The report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review and/or filing of charges.
