BREMERTON — Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies have received two separate threats after an officer accidentally left behind a list of personal information on all sheriff’s department employees while executing a search warrant.
Detectives issued a memo notifying the estimated 160 sheriff’s office employees that a department roster had been inadvertently left behind by an officer helping to execute a narcotics search warrant at a private residence Oct. 20.
A threatening phone call led to the arrest of three people for investigation of manufacturing methamphetamine on Thursday. Sheriff’s deputies traced the phone call to a residence where a meth lab was found, said Mike Davis, chief of detectives.
A man and a juvenile male were arrested Tuesday for investigation of intimidation of a public servant.
Deputies allege that the 28-year-old man, who was stopped while driving in Suquamish, made threats against deputies, saying he had personal data about all the officers, and named others with long and violent criminal drug histories who also had the list.
He also recited information about officers in the Poulsbo Police Department, which has been notified about the incident, deputies said. No information about Poulsbo police was on the misplaced list.
A Kitsap County District Court judge set bail at $100,000 for the man on the charge of intimidating a public servant, a gross misdemeanor. A juvenile male who was a passenger in the car was being held in juvenile detention on the same charge, Davis said.
Undersheriff Dennis Bonneville said it wasn’t uncommon for an officer to carry phone numbers on an assignment. The actions of the officer who misplaced the list will be reviewed, he said.
