The following arrest information was supplied by the Gig Harbor Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
12:47 p.m. – A man reported that his utility trailer was stolen from in front of his residence in the 6300 block of Soundview Drive. Whoever stole the trailer cut the locks and drove it away with what apparently was a truck. Officers found it in the area of 29th Street and 10th Avenue Northwest about an hour after police reported it stolen.
7:47 p.m. – A man reported that someone broke into the fenced-in yard of his business and prowled three vehicles. Tires were stolen, workboxes were pried open and metal containers were damaged.
12:30 p.m. – Officers responded to a report that someone had spray-painted “No Time” on a concrete wall adjacent to the lower parking lot of Murphy’s Landing Marina.
5:01 p.m. – An employee at the newly opened Applebee’s reported that her vehicle had been broken into. Officers checked and found that the vehicle, parked in the Kohl’s parking lot, had its right front passenger window shattered.
Police checked surveillance footage and found that a suspect vehicle – possibly a 90’s-era, four-door car - parked next to the victim’s vehicle. A man in his 30s wearing all black and a baseball cap went into Kohl’s for about 20 minutes then returned. The minute he returned, an unknown passenger comes out of the suspect car and smashes the victim’s vehicle, then the suspect vehicle leaves.
The suspect took the victim’s leather purse with her wallet and her cell phone. Officers also found, next to the victim’s car, stolen mail from another home.
6:20 p.m. – An officer responded to a report of a residential burglary in the 9600 block of Vernhardson Place, where the homeowner said someone entered the home by breaking the glass out of a side door and prying open the deadbolt.
The burglar took the homeowner’s laptop, a digital camera and other camera equipment. The suspect then entered the living room, checked the drawers, then did the same thing on one of the bedrooms. The victim also reported that his pet, who roams the lower level of the house, was frightened, which made him believe the burglar did something to scare it.
A day after officers took that report, a neighbor called and reported that she had seen a suspicious vehicle in her driveway recently. It was a smaller, white Chevrolet, 4-door sedan. She lives on a dead-end road, so there’s no reason for a car to be there, she told police.
