Police Blotter
May 8-10, 2020

Welcome to the blotter.

20050796:  On May 8, 2020, at 10:04 a.m., Officer Figueroa responded to a report of a suspicious person.  When he arrived, he found the suspect staggering down the side of the roadway.  At one point, the man actually stepped into the travel lane.  When Officer Figueroa contacted him, the man balled up both fists and held them up, read for a fight.  Officer Figueroa wasn’t about to let somebody punch him in the face, so he drew his Taser, called for back-up, and asked him to calm down and stay still.  When the man turned away from him, Officer Figueroa took the opportunity to take him to the ground, rather than use his Taser, and was able to detain the man without anyone getting hurt.  The 46 year old Toppenish, WA man was arrested for being a Pedestrian Under the Influence.

20050853:  On May 8, 2020, at 4:26 p.m., Officer Kynett responded to a report of Theft.  The victim reported leaving their bicycle outside their apartment for about one week.  Sometime during that week, an unknown suspect stole his $350, black single speed Retrospec bicycle.  

20050878:  On May 8, 2020, at 7:42 p.m., RO Schmidl responded to a report of a Juvenile Problem.  In short, RO Schmidl had to coordinate finding appropriate housing for a juvenile who’s living situation was not working out.  RO Schmidl worked with DFS and the county attorney’s office to find the right solution and made sure the juvenile was appropriately  place.  

20050888:  On May 8, 2020, at 9:01 p.m., Office Raab and his K-9 partner Homer, stopped a vehicle for doing 62 mph in a 40 mph zone.  When contacted, the driver told them he was headed to his girlfriend’s house.  While he appreciate the need to get to his girl in a timely manner, we frown on exceeding the speed limit to do so.  We also frown on the marijuana that Homer found in the car, so the 21 year old Jackson, WY man was given a citation for being in possession of marijuana.

20050934:  On May 9, 2020, at 12:14 p.m., Officer Kynett responded to a report of Trespassing.  A 60 year old Jackson, WY woman was refusing to leave a hotel she had been staying at.  We should note that we have been working with this woman for some time, trying to connect her with different social services in the community to provide housing.  She has exhausted all of those services and the only thing we have left to offer is a transportation out of the area to somewhere she can get help from friends or family.  She has so far declined that offer.

20050896:  On May 9, 2020, at 1:18 a.m., Officer Osmond stopped a vehicle which had failed to use its turn signal.  Officer Raab was also with him and while speaking with the driver, they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.  They recovered a small quantity of marijuana and seized it for destruction.  Officer Osmond and Raab chose not to give a citation to the driver.

20050990:  On May 9, 2020, at 11:14 p.m., RO Schmidl responded to a report of a Collision and Domestic Violence on the Refuge Road.  Why were we out there?  Isn’t this outside our jurisdiction?  Yes, it is, but we’re not going to let an imaginary line hinder us if someone needs our help.  Having said that, we had the sheriff’s office permission to respond.  RO Schmidl arrived to assist and when it was learned the driver was possibly intoxicated, she did some field sobriety testing.  The driver did poorly on the tests and provided a portable breath test with a result of .111%.  RO Schmidl arrested the 20 year old Jackson, WY man for DUI.  When the man was booked, he was also found to be in possession of a fake ID.  She seized it and charged him with that crime too.
