Transient who threatened to kill five people arrested near Port Orchard

Taken from an incident report by a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy:

A 26-year-old male transient allegedly threatened to kill five people at his ex-girlfriend’s house, in Bremerton’s Navy Yard City, around 9:22 p.m. July 25.

The man allegedly went to his ex-girlfriend’s house and started pounding on the door, wanting to come in.

She wouldn’t let him.

He went to a large window and started pounding it, too, telling her to let him in.

Still, she wouldn’t.

He allegedly pointed at each adult in the room, with his hand like a gun and said things like, “I know where you work/live and I’m going to kill you.”

His ex-girlfriend thought he might be serious.

He had once allegedly showed her a gun and told her that he had stolen it from a state trooper.

He allegedly brought out his gun out, again, at his child’s birthday party, because he didn’t like some of the people there.

And he has spent time in prison for shooting someone.

A Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy found the man that night around 11:15 p.m. at an apartment near Sidney Ave. and Lippert Dr. West, in South Kitsap.

He was arrested for felony harassment, and his bail was initially set at $250,000.

He allegedly told corrections officers that no one had read him his Miranda rights yet, and he couldn’t be arrested until they read him his rights.

A deputy allegedly had him sit down and read him the Miranda warnings.

He laughed as the deputy read him the rights, and the deputy asked if he understood.

“I don’t have to answer that,” he said.

The deputy again asked if he understood his rights, and he refused to answer.

The deputy didn’t ask him any questions.

Deputies searched the vehicle the suspect had been driving but didn’t find any weapons.
