Bremerton man’s car gone, calls police but does not want to report it stolen

A 28-year-old Bremerton man had his car taken and called police but did not want to report it as stolen Oct. 12.

The man told a police officer that three days prior, he and a 26-year-old man were driving on Fifth Street when the 28-year-old had to use a restroom. The 26-year-old called a friend who lived nearby and they stopped there. The 28-year-old left the key and the other man in his car while he went to use the restroom. When he returned, his blue 1990 Cadillac DeVille was gone.

The 28-year-old walked home and called the 26-year-old but was unable to get ahold of him. He doesn’t know the last name of the 26-year-old. When the officer asked if he wanted to report his vehicle as stolen, the man replied “no.” The officer asked a second time and the man said, “No, I just want it back.”

The vehicle owner requested a phone call if his car is located. He provided the officer with the phone number of the 26-year-old. When the officer called the phone number, a man who would not identify himself answered. The report was for information.
