March 4, 2020
Before we begin the blotter, we want to point out there are a lot more Traffic Accidents than what you see here. We do most of our reporting on a state system. You will only see the Hit & Runs and the occasional traffic accident that doesn’t meet the requirements for a state report on the blotter. That being said, let’s get to the blotter so you can see what we did yesterday.
20030198: On March 3, 2020, at about 1:47 a.m., RO White responded to a report of Theft. A man reported the theft of money from his wallet. He claimed the wallet had never left his possession and he couldn’t explain how the money was stolen. RO White is trying to figure it out, but so far she hasn’t had any luck.
20030225: Traffic Collision.
20030252: On March 3, 2020, at about 3:20 p.m., a person reported that their vehicle parked near a roof was damaged when a large amount of snow fell off the roof and onto their hood. That’s not actually a crime, but we’re happy to document the incident. This should serve as a warning to us all to be careful where you park. If you’re a property owner, we would suggest doing what you can to mitigate this kind of thing so people or property don’t get damaged.
20030260: On March 3, 2020, at about 4:25 p.m., Cpl. P. Smith responded to a report of damaged property. It looks like two cab drivers got into an argument. During that argument, one of the cabs got damaged. We don’t have any details as to how the damaged occurred because Cpl. P. Smith is still working on the report, but the damage appears to be minor.
20030262: On March 3, 2020, at about 4:41 p.m., Sgt. Phillips responded to a report of a disturbance at the liquor store. When he arrived, he learned that an intoxicated man had treated one of the clerks with less than the amount of respect she deserved and had been asked to leave by the manager. As it happened, this inebriated gentleman had a warrant for his arrest out of Lincoln County. Sgt. Phillips arrested the 32 year old Alpine, WY man on the warrant. We recommend being nice to people when you know or suspect you might have a warrant. Actually, we recommend being nice to everyone not matter what. It’s just the right thing to do.
20030265: Traffic Collision.
20030278: On March 3, 2020, at about 7:38 p.m., RO White was doing some foot patrol on the town square with her training officer, Cpl. Traphagan. While doing so, they smelled the odor of marijuana. Following their noses, the found that odor was coming from one particular female, who was the only person in the area. That being the case, they made contact with the woman, who admitted to having marijuana and gave them her pipe. They also recovered the rest of her marijuana concealed in a Pringles can. Isn’t that convenient. You can satisfy you munchies after smoking your weed. It’s still illegal in Wyoming though, so the 22 year old Jackson, WY woman was cited and released for possession of a controlled substance.
That’s it from yesterday. Have a great day!
