NEWS BRIEFS: Port Angeles police investigate break-in … and other items

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles police are asking for help identifying suspects after a failed burglary.

A resident on the 1500 block of South Pine Street reported to police she heard glass break and the alarm sound at about 4:50 a.m. Tuesday, according to a news release.

A vehicle was seen leaving the area and was described as a red older box-type hatchback. It is not known if it was connected to the break-in.

An immediate call to 9-1-1, quick response from police and an activated residential alarm likely deterred the burglar from going into the house, police said.

Police are asking people with any information about the crime to call the Port Angeles Police Department at 360-452-4545.

DUI investigation

PORT ANGELES — A Kitsap County woman was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence of intoxicants after she crashed through the entrance gate to the waste transfer station at 3501 W. 18th St.

Catherine Davi, 58, of Poulsbo remained in jail late Wednesday afternoon on $1,000 bail after her arrest at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, Port Angeles Police Sgt. Jason Viada said.

Viada said Davi was arrested while seated inside her disabled black Chevrolet Monte Carlo about 30 feet down an embankment inside the transfer station.

Viada said the front end of the Chevy was damaged and three of the tires destroyed.

He said Davi was able to get out of the vehicle after running through the gate.

“She had come up the bank and tried to get some help by waving someone down; they got back into her car,” Viada said.

Davi declined medical attention.

“She was not injured, other than being cold,” Viada said.

As of 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, the gate was in working order, said James Burke, deputy director of operations for public works and utilities.

“It opens and closes now,” he said.

Burke said a damage estimate was unavailable.
