[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter

July 24-26, 2020

Welcome to your community police blotter, where you get to see everything your police department is doing.  Here are the report calls we took from the weekend.  

20073748:  On July 24, 2020, at 2:10 p.m., Officer Peery responded to a report of a Dog Bite.  He is still working on the report, so we can’t tell you much about it other than to say a man was bit by either his own dog or the neighbor’s dog.  If we had to guess, it sounds like the two dogs had a dust-up and he got caught in the middle.  We’ll have to wait for Officer Peery’s report to know for sure.

20073763:  Hit & Run Collision.

20073809:  On July 24, 2020, at 9:41 p.m., Sgt. Kellams responded with other officers to a fight in progress with one person involved being reported to be holding a gun.  Yikes!  You can be sure they got there in a hurry.  When they did, they learned the fight started over someone kissing a girl.  The men fighting did not want charges filed against the other and we left it at that.  There was no evidence that a firearm was involved in the call, but as you might guess alcohol was.

20073830:  On July 24, 2020, at 11:50 p.m., RO Swicegood responded the same residence in the previously described call.  This time, a woman came to collect some items and threatened to kill the occupants.  That’s not very nice.  RO Swicegood found them leaving the scene and stopped them to find out what the deal was because we just can’t have people threatening to kill each other in the Town of Jackson.   Officers learned the female had walked, uninvited into the home, presumably to pick up a friend’s dog.  When asked to leave, she wouldn’t and had to be forcibly pushed outside.  Officers also learned the female driving the suspect vehicle was intoxicated and was on probation from a previous DUI arrest.  She wasn’t DUI, but was in violation of her probation terms.  RO Swicegood arrested the 39 year old Jackson, WY woman for being in violation of her probation terms.  

20073865:  On July 24, 2020, at 10:25 a.m., Officer Proctor responded to a report of Theft.  He learned that someone had stolen two campaign signs from the Kudar Motel.  The cost of those signs is about $150.  If this was you, please return the signs.   

20073922:  Act of Nature (Wind blew a tree down on two vehicles). 

20074001:  On July 25, 2020, at 11:20 p.m., Officer O’Donnell was doing a little foot patrol on the town square.  While doing so, he saw three females walk around the corner.  Nothing unusual about that, but when they saw Officer O’Donnell, they got the Deer-in-the-headlights look, quickly turned around and ducked out of sight.  When he got to where they were, he could smell the odor of marijuana.  He stopped and questioned these young ladies about what he was smelling and they admitted to just smoking some.  He issued one citation to a 27 year old Woodinville, WA woman and let her be on her way.

20074011:  On July 26, 2020, at 12:23 a.m., Officer Lancaster responded to the Virginian Saloon for a Disturbance.  Before he and other officers were able to arrive, a fight broke out.  When officers arrived, people began to scatter.  Several people were detained, but one person decided to run.  You can’t outrun the police radio, folks.  Even if you could, your Jackson cops are pretty fit and fast and the man was quickly apprehended.  Why did he run?  Probably because he was only 19 and in possession of a fake ID.  Officer Lancaster took his fake ID away and wrote him a citation for being a minor under the influence.  

20074105:  On July 26, 2020, at 5:57 p.m., Sgt. Ruschill responded to a report of Sexual Assault.  We cannot release any further information because this is both an active investigation and we are prohibited by law from releasing anything more.

20074137:  On July 26, 2020, at 9:50 p.m., Officer Ayling responded to a report of Theft.  The victim reported leaving his jacket and backpack at the skatepark.  He kept an eye on his belongings and noted two men using the bench where he left his belongings.  When he looked a short time later, the men were gone and so was his stuff.  

Here is the other stuff we did.
