Woman pinned between car and ferry tollbooth

KINGSTON — Washington State Patrol troopers and crews from North Kitsap Fire & Rescue responded to the Washington State Ferries Kingston terminal around 7:30 p.m. Feb. 7 after a woman was trapped between her car and a ferry tollbooth.

The woman, 40-year-old Tamara Perry of Newcastle, was preparing to purchase ferry fare from her car at the tollbooth. Just before doing so, a piece of paper flew out of the car and she opened her door to get out and retrieve it. As she did, the car, still in “Drive,” moved forward and pinned her between the tollbooth and the car.

A bystander entered the passenger-side door and put the car in “Park” while others worked to move the car away from the booth, freeing Perry. She was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for chest injuries.

Crime spree takes place in Poulsbo

POULSBO — Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office received reports from two victims living on Brixton Place last weekend of cars and car stereo equipment being stolen between 10:30 p.m. Feb. 5 and 8:30 a.m. Feb. 6.

The first victim, a 30-year-old man, said his 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe, with 20-inch rims, was stolen from his driveway. He had driven it home and parked it there Sunday night but found it missing Monday morning. The victim said he couldn’t remember if he had locked the car the night before. There was no suspect information available for that crime.

The second incident took place during the same time period, when an 18-year-old East Bremerton man, who was spending the night at a friends house on Brixton Place had parked his red 1997 Volkswagon Golf in the driveway. The next morning, he found the stereo had been stolen. Other cars parked nearby had not been tampered with. The door may have not been locked because there was no sign of forced entry, deputies said.

Beer stolen from Kountry Korners

KINGSTON — Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Kountry Korners Market for a report of a theft around 6 a.m. Feb. 5.

The owner of the market and an employee both told deputies that a young man had walked in the store, picked up an 18-pack of Miller Genuine Draft and a 12-pack of Coors Light and then ran out of the store. He jumped into a dark colored Kia Sportage, which had a passenger in it, but not before dropping the Coors Light. He left it on the ground, threw the MGD in the car and drove off, running over the Coors Light before driving southbound on Miller Bay Road.

Suquamish Tribal Police soon informed KSCO deputies they had found the Kia parked on Spirit Hawk Lane in Indianola and that the car was still warm. Officers said they found two men at the residence who matched deputies description of the suspects at the market.

The victims positively identified the suspects. They denied knowing anything about the incident.

Tribal police eventually arrested the suspect believed to be the driver and thief, a 21-year-old man from Little Boston, and took him into custody for third degree theft. Bail was set at $2,500.

Bomb threat prompts search

A scribbled, misspelled note indicating a bomb threat was found in a North Kitsap High School bathroom after school Feb. 6, prompting building evacuations of remaining teachers, clubs and activities.

The note was found shortly after school around 3 p.m., said school officials, and the Poulsbo Police Department was notified.

PPD Sgt. Bill Playter said three Washington State Patrol bomb-sniffing dogs searched the entire school. No explosives were found and everything was declared all clear by 10 p.m.

NKHS’ resource police officer will be investigating the matter, Playter said.
