December 4, 2019
Hello Jackson! Here is what we did today.
19120266: On December 4, 2019 at about 7:04 a.m., Officer Mattson responded to a report of a woman falling on town property. We respond to this type of call for a couple of reasons. The first priority is to help our friends at JH Fire & EMS deal with any injuries. That generally involves helping to load the patient in the ambulance. The other reason we respond to these calls is to document the fall, injury and the reason for it. If something needs repaired, we notified Public Works. In this case the woman was injured enough she needed to be transported to the hospital for treatment. We hope she feels better.
19120279: On December 4, 2019 at about 8:55 a.m., Cpl. Jones, along with his new trainee Recruit Officer White, responded to a Collision Hit & Run. You remember our newest Officer Amanda White? She just graduated the academy last month and today was her first day. In fact, this is probably her first investigation. Exciting stuff. She said she was nervous, excited and scared all rolled into one. Until she finishes training, we will continue to refer to her as RO White. Good luck with the training. In this case, the victim parked their white Toyota 4 Runner on Maple, across from the Picnic Café at about 8:50 a.m. During that time, a white van sideswiped the victim’s vehicle, breaking the mirror. The van did not stop. If this was you, please come talk to us. We just need to collect insurance information and maybe give you a ticket.
19120291: On December 4, 2019 at about 10:45 a.m., Officer Mattson responded to a Collision Hit & Run. Yes, another one. In this instance the victim thought their vehicle was damaged the previous day at about 8:30 a.m. in the Albertson’s parking lot. Officer Mattson spent some time looking through the video cameras that cover that area, but could not locate a suspect vehicle. Better luck next time Officer Mattson. It wasn’t for lack of trying though.
19120313: On December 4, 2019 at about 2:58 p.m., Officer Jones and RO White responded to…yes, another Collision Hit & Run report. RO White is going to be a pro at these in no time. In this case, there wasn’t much information to go by. The victim reported their rental vehicle was damaged at an unknown time and location. You’re probably wondering, are these collisions related? It doesn’t seem so in this case. We check those kind of things. With the lack of other evidence and information, there isn’t much more we can do on this one.
19120326: On December 4, 2019, at about 5:35 p.m., Officer Mattson responded to a report of fraud. He isn’t finished with the report yet, so we can’t tell you much, but it looks like someone was tricked into purchasing $1000 worth of gift cards. We’re hoping those gift cards haven’t been used or given to an unknown third party. You should always be very suspicious of this kind of transaction. Nobody we know of does business this way.
19120332: On December 4, 2019, at about 6:34 p.m., Officer C. Smith responded to a report of threats. This isn’t necessarily a crime, but it always merits looking in to. We will investigate the threat by talking to the parties involved to see if it involves a violation of the law. We will also try and determine how serious the person was who made the threat. Was it just idle talk or something more nefariousness? Either way, we’ll have a serious conversation with the person making the treats, suggesting to them there are better ways to express themselves.
That’s it for today Jackson. Happy Thursday.
