Bremerton sailor arrested after allegedly attempting to break into Catholic convent

Documents say Logan A. Bertone’s address was listed as USS Carl Vinson

A 21-year-old sailor stationed aboard the USS Carl Vinson was arrested last week after allegedly attempting to break into a Catholic convent on Veneta Avenue in Bremerton.

According to a Bremerton Police Department certificate of probable cause, an officer responded to the scene for a burglary in progress. When the officer arrived, he heard a loud home alarm going off in the convent and then saw the suspect, Logan A. Bertone, walking away from the residence before he was detained.

When Bertone was detained, he allegedly dropped a brass door hinge pin onto the sidewalk.

“There was significant damage to the door frame of the residence, and a heater inside had been damaged,” the officer wrote. “One of the door hinge pins was also missing, and the hinge pin that Bertone had dropped appeared to be a match. This suggested that he had made entry into the residence.”

When interviewed by police, Bertone initially claimed he knew someone inside the convent, according to documents. Four individuals were inside the residence and they all identified themselves as nuns and confirmed Bertone did not have permission to be there, documents say.

According to documents filed in Kitsap County Superior Court Jan. 10, Bertone’s address was listed as the USS Carl Vinson. Lt. Commander Miranda Williams, public affairs officer for the USS Carl Vinson confirmed Bertone is an active-duty sailor.

“As we gather our facts, we will take whatever actions are deemed necessary and appropriate in accordance with the UCMJ [Uniform Code of Military Justice],” Williams said. “We expect our personnel to uphold the highest standard of conduct on and off duty. At this time, we’re allowing the investigation to unfold.”

Bertone was arrested for residential burglary with bail set at $50,000.
