No signs of urine

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a man trying to open someone’s vehicle in the 4100 block of West F Street in Navy Yard City at 11:45 p.m. July 20.

The man reportedly took off on a bicycle toward National Avenue.

The 54-year-old man and his 53-year-old wife told deputies they were sitting in their living room when the man heard someone coming up their driveway. The man said he heard and watched the suspect try to open their vehicle door and look into the vehicle windows.

The couple opened the front door and yelled at the suspect, who then grabbed his bicycle and took off.

Another deputy located the 27-year-old Bremerton man near the northbound Loxie Eagans/State Highway 3 on-ramp.

He told the deputy he was just urinating on the brick wall next to the car.

A deputy searched the brick wall area and found no signs of urine.

The man was arrested and booked into jail for second-degree vehicle prowling and an outstanding warrant. His bail is set at $5,000.

Hank’s Grocery throw down

A sheriff’s deputy responded to a report of an assault in progress at Hank’s Grocery on Chico Way NW in Central Kitsap shortly before 11 p.m. July 14. Two women were reportedly fighting by a van in the parking lot.

A 44-year-old woman told the deputy she was driving her van westbound on Erlands Point Road approaching Chico Way. She said a group of three, two males and one female, were walking ahead of her in the westbound lane.

As she approached the stop sign, the woman said the female of the group yelled, “You better stop (expletive deleted).” The woman in the van then yelled something similar back.

The woman said something hit the side of her van as she turned onto Chico Way. She stopped her van in the Hank’s Grocery parking lot and the two women continued to yell at one another. The female suspect then punched the woman, who was still inside the van, several times in the face. The woman jumped out of the van and the fight ensued.

Once the female learned a Hank’s Grocery employee called police, she left on foot on Erlands Point Road.

Deputies searched the area and couldn’t find the female suspect, described as in her late teens to early 20s.

Traffic ticket


A sheriff’s deputy stopped a car adjacent to Central Kitsap High School at the NW Anderson Hill Road and NW Bucklin Hill road intersection in Silverdale at 3:15 p.m. July 14.

The deputy clocked the car at 54 mph in a 35 mph on Anderson Hill Road near Dickey Road. He followed the vehicle and then watched it accelerate to 40 mph in a 25 mph zone near CKHS on Anderson Hill Road.

The deputy told the 20-year-old Bremerton driver she was speeding and the woman began cussing. She told the deputy if he stopped her near where she was speeding, she would have known why he pulled her over. She said it was “improper” of him to wait so long to stop her.

The deputy went to his patrol vehicle to write the speeding ticket and when he returned to the woman’s car, she had turned the stereo up loud. The woman refused to turn the stereo down.

The woman eventually turned down the stereo, but when the deputy began talking, she again turned up the volume.

The woman then removed the keys from the ignition and threw them through the driver’s window, hitting the deputy in the stomach.

The deputy asked the woman if she wanted to go to jail for assault and she started cussing again.

The woman was removed from the vehicle and calmed down.

The deputy issued the woman a speeding ticket and released her.
