[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter

August 12, 2020

Welcome to the police blotter, where you get a complete look at what your police department is doing.  Here is what we did over the last couple of days.  

20081560:  On August 12, 2020, at 11:01 a.m., we responded to a Disturbance.  As it happened, a teenage juvenile got into an argument with their parent and came to the police department for help.  That’s awesome that the juvenile thought to come to the police department for help.  It’s a little frustrating when we hear parents telling their children, "There’s the cops!  They’re going to get you if you’re not good."  We’re not the boogey man and there isn’t a cop who wears the uniform that wouldn’t jump into danger to save a child.  There’s actually a number of stories out there of officers who died trying.  In this case, we talked with the juvenile, called the parent, and told them about the different services available to them.   

20081632:  Hit & Run Collision.

20081636:  On August 12, 2020, at 7:45 p.m., we stopped a vehicle for having expired registration and a broken brake light.  When our officer contacted the juvenile driver, he noticed they were really nervous and shaking.  Not unusual.  Some people don’t have a lot of contact with police and with this kid being a juvenile, this may have been their first experience.  Although, the tobacco products in plain view may have had something to do with it as well.  The officer noticed it and searched the car, finding marijuana in addition to the tobacco.  We wrote the teenage driver a couple of citations and released them to their parent.  

20081700:  On August 13, 2020, at 12:26 p.m., we responded to a report of an underage female having sex with adult.  We will be investigating the case to determine if a crime has been committed and if we can prove that crime.  You would think having sex with an underage juvenile would always be a crime.  Not necessarily.  There are a number of factors involved in deciding whether to file charges to include the age of those involved.  

20081704:  Found Property (bicycle)

20081720:  On August 13, 2020, on 2:37 p.m., we responded to a report of Threats.  We receive this kind of call on a regular basis and sometimes they are found to be true and sometime not.  Sometimes the "threat" is so nebulous it can’t be proven as a crime.  In this case, we determined that no crime had been committed but we will still document the incident in case things escalate and we need to intervene later.  

20081798:  On August 13, 2020, at 10:33 a.m., we stopped a vehicle because it rolled a stop sign (cutting us off at the intersection) and then ran over a pedestrian caution sign.  We stopped the vehicle and found the driver to be intoxicated.  We did some field sobriety testing and the driver did poorly.  We arrested the 23 year old Wilson, WY man for DUI.  His breath test was a .18%, over twice the legal limit.  

Here is the other stuff we did.
