Man arrested after allegedly firing at Silverdale street sign

Gunshots also hit a house on Old Frontier Road NW which was directly in the sightline of the sign

A man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly firing off gunshots into a street sign for NW Martha Lane in Silverdale, some of which hit a residence on Old Frontier Road NW.

According to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office incident report, a nearby house was directly in the line of sight of the sign. Approximately 15 minutes later, deputies were notified of a single-vehicle collision into a utility pole on NW Sherman Hill Road and Ptarmigan Lane NW.

The collision occurred about seven miles from where the gunshots were fired into the sign, documents read. The registered owner of the vehicle was Garret Graham, who resides with his mother in Poulsbo. According to court documents, Graham told officers that his mother was also named Martha. One deputy noted in court documents that shell casings were also found inside the vehicle.

After deputies ran Graham’s information, it was discovered that he had a .45 caliber Taurus handgun registered in his name. Authorities contacted Graham at his Poulsbo residence and he admitted to firing at the sign that day, as well as a week prior at the same location.

According to officers, when Graham was asked why he chose to shoot at a sign bearing his mother’s name, he responded by saying “we’ve had issues.”

Deputies retrieved the firearm from Graham’s vehicle, as well as additional rounds and shell casings. Graham was booked for Drive-By Shooting and Hit-and-Run with a bail set at $70,000.
