[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter
June 15-16, 2020

Welcome to the Police Blotter.  

20061740: On June 15, 2020, at 9:29 a.m., Officer Normand responded to an Animal Control issue.  Officer responded to a reported dog bite incident which had occurred in Jackson.  The victim advised that his dog and another had got in to a fight.  He was bit while trying to separate the dogs.  Suspect dog was not located but believed to be up to date on vaccines.

20061835:  On June 15, 2020, at 9:09 p.m., RO Schmidl responded to a report of a woman lying on the side of the road.  She found the woman to be intoxicated.  The woman said she was on the phone and handed RO Schmidl her shoe so she could talk to the person on the phone.  This 36 year old New York, NY woman’s blood alcohol level was a .309%.  RO Schmidl took her to jail for Public Intoxication.

20061872:  Found Property (Wallet and phone)

20061890: On June 16, 2020, at 10:23 a.m., RO Swicegood responded to a report of Destruction of Property.  He learned that suspect(s) so far unknown, spray painted and keyed the front window of a downtown business.  The property owner is estimating $1,500 to repair the damage.  We will be reviewing security camera for the business, so if we have something useable, we’ll get it out to everyone to see if you can tell us who done it.  

20061903:  Found Property (bicycle)

20061912:  On June 16, 2020, at 1:49 p.m., Officer O’Donnell responded to a report of someone having observed an unknown male conceal an item underneath a rock on a business property. The reporting party suspected it may be drugs/paraphernalia. Officer O’Donnell responded and recovered a small plastic bag with a small amount of Marijuana inside.  It was taken for destruction.

20061918:  On June 16, 2020, at 2:15 p.m., Cpl. Traphagan, responded to a report of an intoxicated male who had been touching customers and refusing to take the taxi that had been provided to him.  Cpl. Traphagan made additional attempts to get the man home, but he was just too drunk.  A .318% to be exact.  We know there are some in the community that think we just scoop drunk people up and throw them in jail, thereby criminalizing a person who has done nothing wrong.  We would encourage those people to read our blotter and see the efforts we go to before resorting to handcuffs.  Having exhausted other options, Cpl. Traphagan took the 50 year old Central Point, OR man to jail for Public Intoxication.  We had him medically evaluated because of his high blood alcohol content and booked into the jail where he could be monitored and checked at regular intervals to ensure he is doing okay.  (We did the same for the previous woman arrested by RO Schmidl.)

20061936:  On June 16, 2020, at 5:00 p.m., Officer O’Donnell responded to report of an intoxicated person in one of the grocery store parking lots.  The man had apparently been gathering and pushing shopping carts in the parking lot, obstructing vehicle and pedestrian traffic to a degree everyone around had become concerned for his safety.  Officer O’Donnell tried to help with a plan to get him home, but the 44 year old Greely, CO man was too intoxicated by prescription drugs and alcohol and had to be arrested for Public Intoxication.  Like the previous man, he will be monitored and checked at regular intervals to make sure he’s okay until he is ready to take care of himself.
