Woman wanders into home and refuses to leave

A woman who was not invited to a Bremerton man’s home entered his detached two-car garage around 5:30 a.m. on April 5 and refused to leave. The man was packing items into his car for his newspaper delivery route when he noticed the woman walk into his garage without asking permission, states a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office report. The owner of the home knew the woman through a friend who had dated her, according to the report. When confronted, the woman “mumbled something about being released from the hospital” and continued walking into the garage. She sat in a chair and turned up a stereo. He told her the music would wake the children in the household, and he turned the music off. The woman turned it on again and sat “motionless” while ignoring the man’s orders to leave. When deputies arrived and attempted to talk with her, she sat still and said nothing. Even after she was told to walk outside with the deputy and was threatened with being arrested, she still made no movement. After escorting and placing her in his car, the deputy returned for the woman’s items. Upon entering the car, he found her singing to the music on the radio. She was booked for criminal trespassing, first degree with bail set at $5,000.
