[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter 

February 3, 2020

We handled 31 calls for service yesterday.  That seems to be about the average this time of year.  Fortunately, there was nothing major, but an officer never knows what’s going to happen from day to day, moment to moment.  We’re prepared for most anything though.

20020265:  On February 3, 2020, at about 2 a.m., Cpl. Traphagan observed a vehicle making a U-turn.  Nothing illegal about that, but it was done so slowly and methodically to be out of the ordinary.  Curious, Cpl. Traphagan followed the vehicle to see how its driving would continue.  Not good as it turned out.  Even giving the vehicle the benefit of the doubt due to the snowing conditions, it was swerving so badly across three lanes and drove up onto a curb while trying to make a turn that he felt he needed to stop it.  Cpl. Traphagan contacted the driver and found him to be intoxicated, so he did some field sobriety testing.  The man did poorly and he had to arrest the 57 year old Jackson, WY man for DUI.

20020303:  On February 3, 2020, at about 12:17 p.m., Officer Osmond responded to a Collision Hit & Run.  The victim reported leaving their vehicle unattended in a parking lot and coming back later to find it damaged from a collision.  Fortunately, someone saw the collision and was kind enough to leave a note.  We have all the information we need to prove the crime, but Officer Osmond is still trying to contact the owner.  If the suspect chooses not to contact us back or take responsibility, we’ll have to write a warrant for their arrest.

20020327:  On February 3, 2020, at about 3:34 p.m., RO White responded to a Collision Hit & Run.  The victim reported a black, Mercedes SUV collided with her mirror while driving on Buffalo Way.  She pulled over to make contact with the other driver, but they didn’t stop.  That’s not very nice.  What would be nice is if the driver of said Mercedes SUV read this blotter and came into the police department to talk to us.  Perhaps it’s just a misunderstanding.

Have a great day.
