Woman chases down driver who hit her

On April 24, a Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputy stopped a woman driving a Honda at a high rate of speed through Silverdale after he found her tailing another car. When stopped, the woman pointed to a man across from her in the parking lot and told the deputy that “he just hit me and ran on me,” states a KCSO certificate of probable cause.

The man, 21, would not release his name or give his license to the deputy. He repeatedly told the deputy, “I’m going to Shari’s” when asked for his license. The Bremerton man was arrested for obstructing the hit-and-run investigation. He was searched and found to have $359 cash in his sock, a knife, a scale, plastic baggies and a substance that later tested as heroin. He was booked on a $35,000 bail.

 

 

Sister uses disabled sister’s ID for DUI

A Seattle woman arrested in Bremerton for a DUI used her sister’s name for booking. When a friend called to ask about her name being on the Kitsap County Jail website, the disabled sister—who is unable to drive—called authorities. When asked why she used her sister’s ID, Rolanda Ulrich said she became scared when she got pulled over while driving. Ulrich said she was driving to the hospital when she was pulled over and did not have an ID on her. Ulrich’s sister had left her ID in the car, so Ulrich used it. On top of DUI charges, Ulrich was charged with identity theft and forgery.

Perpetual thief admits stealing to police

A 35-year-old woman admitted to frequently stealing after she was arrested at Sportsman’s Warehouse on April 27. Authorities were called to the Silverdale store after the woman selected two memory cards and concealed them and tried leaving without paying.

According to a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office charging document, the arresting deputy was familiar with the woman’s past thefts and warrants. She admitted to the deputy she steals items to sell on eBay. She also admitted she “sometimes will steal merchandise and then returns it to the store without a purchase receipt.”

In turn, she sells the gift cards. Due to her quick ability to provide rates, the deputy suspected she was familiar with the process. The woman was banned from all Sportsman’s Warehouse properties for life and was transferred to Kitsap County Jail for trafficking in stolen property and theft, third degree.
