911 Briefs

Child accidently

locked in car

HANSVILLE — North Kitsap Fire & Rescue crews were called to the Point No Point Lighthouse beach parking lot around 6:30 p.m. July 27 for a report of a child locked in a car.

Crews arrived on the scene and spent 10 minutes trying to get into the late-model SUV. Because the car had electronic locks, it was more difficult to open without a key, fire officials reported.

The child, a 1-year-old boy, was unharmed in the incident.

The woman told firefighters she had been preparing to leave the beach when she put the keys on the front seat while securing the boy in his car seat in the back. She then closed the door and found vehicle locked. She used her cell phone to call 911, but instead of reaching Kitsap County Central Communications, she reached another dispatch center in an adjacent county. Kitsap CenCom was finally reached when her insurance company forwarded the call to the dispatch.

Fire officials said the cell phone probably picked up the signal of the closest tower site, which was in Jefferson County, and advised callers to tell 911 dispatchers which county they are calling from so they can be sent to the correct 911 center.

Suspect violates

protection order

POULSBO — Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies reported to the 22000 block of Veterans Drive NE around 5:30 p.m. July 23 for a report of a domestic dispute. The reporting party said the dispute sounded verbal but there had been physical disputes in the past at the same location.

Deputies, as well as Suquamish Tribal Police officers, arrived at the residence and observed the 28-year-old suspect, a Poulsbo resident, run to the back of the house and jump out a second floor window. Deputies later observed it was not far from the ground. The suspect was apprehended and detained for questioning.

Deputies learned from CenCom the suspect had a protection order against him and found the suspect had been inside with house with the protected person.

The suspect was arrested for violating the protection order and bail was set for $5,000.

Umbrellas taken

from coffee shop

KINGSTON — A local business owner reported to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office that he had witnessed three young men steal two green canvas umbrellas from in front of a local coffee shop in downtown Kingston just before 1 a.m. July 4.

The witness said the men who seemed intoxicated, took the umbrellas and then left the area in a maroon-colored Ford van.

Deputies later found the van heading westbound on State Route 104 and found three 25-year-old men inside, with a strong odor of beer coming from the vehicle.

All three were detained and questioned by deputies. A search of the van revealed several partially consumed bottles/cans of beer and two canvas umbrellas, similar to the ones that had been described as stolen.

Upon further investigation, the driver, a Mill Creek resident, was arrested and cited for DUI. He was released on his own recognizance. The other two passengers were also released, with theft charges against them forwarded to the county prosecutor. The umbrellas were returned to the coffee shop owner later that morning.
