Attempted robbery at Lemolo Market

LEMOLO — Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of an attempted robbery about 10:30 p.m. April 20.

Two Poulsbo victims, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, said two men had just tried to rob them at Lemolo Market on Lemolo Shore Drive.

The 18-year-old victim said they had been driving in his red 1991 Honda Civic when it started to overheat and they pulled into the market’s parking lot. A beige 1985 Honda Civic then drove into the lot and parked in front of the red vehicle to prevent it from moving.

The victims said the driver of the beige Honda, a 22-year-old Poulsbo resident, and described him as a white male with short reddish blond hair, about 6-feet tall and wearing a white beanie cap and a light colored T-shirt. He reportedly walked up to the driver’s side red Honda and told the two victims to get out of the car. The suspect’s passenger also reportedly got out of the beige Honda and was described by the victims as a dark-skinned Native American or Hispanic male with very short hair and dark clothing. The driver then demanded the victims empty their pockets and their wallets and hand over their drivers licenses.

At that point, the 18-year-old victim recognized the suspect and started to call him by his name. The suspect then said “shut up” and “you’re in my hood” and told them to leave the area. The two suspects then got back in their car and left. The victims wrote down the license plate number and reported the incident to the police.

Upon further investigation, deputies were able to locate the beige Honda in a driveway in the 23000 block of Stottlemyer Road, near a trailer known for drug activity. The deputies contacted the 22-year-old suspect, who was searched and a “recipe” for methamphetamine production was found in his wallet.

He was arrested and booked into jail for second degree attempted robbery and for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant from Jefferson County for possession of marijuana. Bail was set at $55,100.

Seattle resident creates a ruckus

KINGSTON — Deputies reported to Drifters Sports Bar & Grill on State Route 104 for report of a problem with one of the patrons around 8 p.m. April 21.

The bartender, a 37-year-old woman, said she had asked a 63-year-old Seattle resident to leave the bar after he quietly drank a beer and then washed his boots and socks in the men’s bathroom and hung the socks out to dry in the restaurant. She asked him to leave and he then allegedly shoved her and made a scene in the bar.

Deputies contacted the suspect at the Kingston Inn and observed that he did not seem to be intoxicated. The suspect said he may have pushed the bartender’s hands off him but never hurt her. The bartender asked deputies to tell the suspect that he would be arrested if he came into the bar again. The man said he would not return and left for the ferry terminal to go back to Seattle.
