[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter

July 30-Aug. 3, 2020

Welcome to the police blotter.  We had a busy weekend.  Here are the calls for service that ended in reports.

20074571:  On July 30, 2020, at 2:07 a.m., we made a traffic stop on a vehicle which failed to stop for a stop-sign and which was also speeding.  When we contacted the driver, we found them to be intoxicated.  The driver did poorly on their field sobriety tests and we had to arrest the 25 year old Irwin, PA man for DUI.  

20074725:  On July 31, 2020, at 2:51 a.m., we responded to a parking complaint.  The resident of an apartment complex called 911 to report that a person was parked in the loading zone of the complex.  Just so we’re clear, this isn’t what 911 is for.  Besides being very upset we wouldn’t tow the vehicle from private property, the person was having other issues we attempted unsuccessfully to resolve.  We did our best, but we can’t make everyone happy.  

20074729:  Found Property (ring)

20074774:  On July 31, 2020, at 2:16 p.m., we responded to a commercial burglary.  It looks like someone broke into a law office, damaging a door in the process.  It does not appear that anything was taken, but we will investigate to determine who caused the $100 in damage.  We may be able to grab some video from neighboring businesses and we’ll let you know if we need your help.    

20080031:  On August 1, 2020, at 9:19 a.m., we responded to a Trespassing complaint.  It was reported a man was illegally camping and trespassing on the back patio of the US Fish and Wildlife Visitor Center.  When contacted, we learned the 34 year old Escanaba, MI man had a nationwide warrant for his arrest for violating his parole.  That being the case, we had to arrest the man and have him booked into the Teton County jail.  

20080070:  On August 1, 2020, at 1:30 p.m., we responded to a report of a Dog Bite.  Apparently, the dog in question was injured when it was hit by a vehicle.  A very nice man stopped to pick the dog up and take it to the vet, but was bit by the dog several times while trying to help.  The 26 year old Jackson, WY female owner of the dog was contacted and given a citation for allowing her dog to roam at-large.

20080098:  On August 1, 2020, at 6:50 p.m., we responded to a report of an Assault.  A female contacted the TCSO dispatch center and reported she had been punched by another female.  When we arrived, we learned that altercation was over the victim wearing a mask.  The suspect apparently ripped it from her face and punched her.  That is not very nice.  We are working to identify the suspect and will be issuing a citation if we are able to do so.

20080114:  On August 1, 2020, at 12:00 midnight, we responded to a report of Fraud.  It was initially believed someone had messed with the victim’s accounts, but after taking a closer look, it appears to have been a clerical error.  No crime here.  Move along folks.  

20080131:  On August 1, 2020, at 11:44 p.m., we responded to a Domestic Disturbance.  When we arrived, we learned a couple got into an argument over having to cancel their wedding.  The argument devolved into a physical altercation.  We arrested the 49 year old Albuquerque, NM woman for Domestic Assault.  

20080135:  On August 2, 2020, at 12:27 a.m., a couple of our officers were doing some foot patrol on the town square.  While doing so, a man walked past them who smelled of marijuana.  They stopped and the man and asked him about the odor.  His response was, "You can smell it?"  Yes, we can smell it in the same way you can smell skunk driving down the highway at 65 mph with the windows rolled up.  We seized the man’s marijuana for destruction and let me be on his way without any citation.   

20080200:  On August 2, 2020, at 3:59 p.m., our airport officer responded to a report of a stolen bag.  The bag was scanned onto the carousel but taken before the owner could grab it.  We are hoping someone grabbed it by mistake and will return in when they find their error.  For now, the owner of the bag is out hundreds of dollars in clothing and climbing gear.  

As far as the other stuff we did, we are not able to produce that data at this time.  We’re working on it and have it for you soon.
