Kitsap County court cases

Robbery arrest

A 36-year-old man was in Kitsap County Superior Court Oct. 30 charged with second-degree robbery.

Bail was set at $50,000. He faces 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Bremerton police reports say on Oct. 9 in the 1100 block of Sidney Avenue a man was assaulted by two men while trying to prevent them from stealing his motorcycle by loading it into the back of a pickup. The victim was punched in the face by the truck driver, and when he fought back was pushed violently to the ground by the passenger in the truck.

On Oct. 19, the motorcycle was recovered in a parking lot on Martin Luther King Way. A suspect vehicle was spotted about two blocks away. The man in that vehicle said he rode the motorcycle then dumped it because he feared it might be stolen.

Police later talked to him, and he said he didn’t know who actually stole the motorcycle because, “They’re always masked up.” The officer said he had not told him the suspects wore masks, so he was caught in a lie.

Elude arrest

A 28-year-old Bremerton man was in Superior Court Oct. 30 arrested on three charges: attempting to elude, driving with a suspended or revoked license and driving without a required ignition interlock.

Bail was set at $55,000. He faces seven years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

Bremerton police say on Oct. 29 at 1:42 a.m. an officer tried to make a traffic stop. The vehicle left a parking lot of a business that serves alcohol in the 4100 block of Wheaton Way. The vehicle’s owner is a minor, so the officer knew that person was not driving. The officer also knew another possible driver of the vehicle had felony warrants out for his arrest from Thurston County.

The driver would not pull over, instead driving twice the speed limit and running a red light at Highway 303 and Riddell Road. The driver eventually stopped and ran inside a house. After a standoff, he eventually surrendered.

Retail theft

A 42-year-old Milton woman was in Superior Court Oct. 30 charged with second-degree retail theft and possession of a stolen vehicle. Bail was set at $45,000.

She faces 15 years in prison and $30,000 in fines.

Kitsap sheriff’s reports say on Oct. 28 at 8:44 p.m. there was a call for shoplifting at Dick’s Sporting Goods on Silverdale Way.

The officer saw her with a large amount of merchandise in her arms with security alarm and price tags on them. The suspect was in possession of a controlled substance (which appeared to be fentanyl), admitted to driving a stolen vehicle and lied about being pregnant so could be transported to a hospital to get out of going to jail.

She had stolen almost $950 in merchandise and had planned to sell it. Other stolen merchandise from other stores was in the vehicle.

Warrant arrest

A 24-year-old Port Orchard man was in Superior Court Oct. 31 arrested on a warrant for second-degree robbery and domestic violence. Bail was $50,000. He faces 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

Kitsap sheriff’s reports say on Oct. 9 at 5:16 a.m. deputies were dispatched to a domestic violence call at Fircrest and Madrona Drives NE. A woman was screaming that a man was trying to kill her. When deputies arrived the victim was crying, shaking and had dried blood in her mouth.
