Woman banned from Winco for 100 years visits store anyhow

A 58-year-old woman with a trespass warrant to stay away from Winco stores for “100 years” was arrested after visiting the Bremerton Winco on Sept. 26. The female was met by a security officer at the front of the store after she paid for some items, but not others that were in her purse. Inside her purse, officers found Jelly Belly jelly beans, Ghirardelli chocolates, hair coloring and other miscellaneous items. A Bremerton police officer found the trespass paperwork noting the woman’s agreement that she would be arrested for second-degree burglary if she was found on the property again with stolen items. The female was arrested and booked for burglary in second degree and her bail was set at $10,000.

Bremerton man high on meth steals items from Walmart

A Bremerton man was arrested Sept. 26 after resisting arrest and shoplifting from the Port Orchard Walmart. After being confronted, three officers tried to detain the 27-year-old  man who was using a knife to cut items out of packaging. According to a Port Orchard Police Department report, a Tazer was used on the man. The suspect was searched and officers found “a clear glass smoking pipe in his front right pants pocket,” states the report. The officer found what looked to be burned methamphetamine residue in the pipe. Also found in the man’s pockets were “two packages of Colt 25 airsoft pistols, a Dremel metal cutting wheel and a vehicle electronic brake controller,” states the report. A Cencom report showed that the male also had a $5,000 bail set for a violation of a domestic violence protection order. When asked why he stole items, the man replied by saying, he “had gotten high and made a stupid decision to steal,” the report states. He also admitted to stealing earlier in the day. His bail is set at $30,000 for possession of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, two counts of theft in the third degree, resisting arrest and his outstanding warrant.

Man with meth claims he isn’t a ‘bad guy’

A 40-year-old Bremerton man claimed an officer was lying to him when the officer detained him for a warrant. After running a records check, police found the man had a felony warrant for child support and a $2,000 bail. “During the search I located a small zip lock baggie with white crystal like substance in it which I suspected to be Methamphetamine. The baggie was located in his right front pocket,” states the Bremerton Police Department report. When removed, the male said, “Can’t you just throw the baggie away? I am not a bad guy,” states the report. After the arrest, the male would not answer questions about the substance in the baggie. The substance was later weighed at 0.5 grams, and tested positive for meth. The male was booked for his warrant and possession of meth. His bail is set at $52,000.
