Here's a look at local crime. All information was gathered from police reports and charging documents.

Woman arrested already has 10 booking photos

A Bremerton woman was arrested after she was caught shoplifting while shopping with her  mother and 3-year-old daughter. A Poulsbo Walmart Asset Protection Associate watched Allison Poor, 28, cut open various packages that were then concealed in her backpack. After collecting a variety of beauty products, Poor entered the women’s restroom where she continued to cut items out of  boxes and left several empty product boxes in the restroom, according to Poulsbo Police Department charging documents. After going through a register with her mother, Poor made her way to customer service where she exchanged four facial care products without a receipt and was given an $86.80 refund amount.

Upon exiting the store, Poor was immediately escorted to the security office. Officers asked to place her daughter in Poor’s mother’s care during the questioning and possible arrest, so her daughter did not have to see it. Poor told authorities she was “currently homeless and had no money,” states the report. During a search of Poor’s backpack, more stolen items were found, along with drug paraphernalia.

After looking up Poor’s name, officers came back with 10 booking photos and “72 involvements,” including arrests for theft, drug and driving offenses. Another search turned up 20 small baggies of suspected methamphetamine residue and a glass meth pipe “inside one of her daughter’s little socks.”

She was transported to jail for retail theft, third degree with extenuating circumstances, trafficking in stolen property, possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Bail was set at $50,000.

Bicyclist arrested for misdemeanor, cocaine possession

A Bremerton Police Department officer watched as a man with no bicycle brakes rolled through an intersection, forcing a car to avoid him. The officer pulled the bicyclist over, telling him that brakes are a necessity when being operated on the roadway.

When asked for his ID, the man gave two different names, which did not match the descriptions entered into the Cencom system.

The man also told the officer he did not know his social security number. On the third try, the man gave his correct name, Charles Bernard Davis. The Bremerton man had a misdemeanor warrant for theft, third degree on a $10,000 bail.

After being booked, Davis also was found to have cocaine on him. He was booked on an additional charge of possession of cocaine.

Pepsi vendor helps police nab a female shoplifter

A Pepsi vendor at the Bremerton Safeway alerted authorities after seeing a white Honda flee with a female passenger who ran from the store.

A Bremerton Police officer stopped the car along Warren Avenue. Inside the vehicle was the female who fled, along with a shopping basket filled with items.

The basket had been covered by a coat. The suspect, 23, already had three confirmed warrants for her arrest.

Two were from the Port Orchard Police Department for driving with a suspended license, third degree, and another was from Gig Harbor for a DUI warrant. Theft, third degree was added to her charges.
