[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter

March 18, 2020

Apparently, crime didn’t really have Covid-19, just a nasty head cold.  He was released yesterday and found some mischief in a couple of different instances.

Blotter time!

20031750:  Collision Hit & Run.

20031768:  On March 18, 2020, at about 5:38 p.m., Officer Peery responded to a report of a disturbance between an adult male and juvenile female.  He arrived and began his investigation and is still trying to document the information he gathered in his report.  Try this the next time you are present for an argument.  Write down both sides and try and determine who is right and wrong based on what you hear.  That’s kind of what it’s like for an officer when they have to write a report on a disturbance like this.  It can get confusing, especially if people are lying or leaving out portions of the truth.  In this instance, it doesn’t look like anyone went to jail or cited.  

20031774:  On March 18, 2020, at about 8:11 p.m., Officer O’Donnell responded to a disturbance.  We should point out this call involve non-English speaking persons and Officer O’Donnell had to get creative in interviewing victim, witnesses and suspect.  In this case, the dispatch center used a language line for translation on the original call.  Officer O’Donnell then used one of our Victim Services advocates on speaker phone for translation and then used a witness to translate for the suspect.  It can get complicated, but we work through it.  In this case, Officer O’Donnell determined there was a dispute over the delivery of a package and one party accused the other of stealing.  They also claimed the other tried to stab them with a kitchen knife, but the other party denied this ever happened.  Yep, this happened over the delivery of a package.  Officer O’Donnell was not able to determine who was telling the truth and there isn’t any physical evidence to support one version of the truth over the other.  Regardless, we have documented the incident and sent it to the prosecutor’s office for review.

That’s it from yesterday.  Wash your hands and have a good week.
