[ARCHIVED] Police Blotter


Police Blotter

August 17-18, 2020

Welcome to the Jackson Police blotter, where you get to see everything your police department is doing in an effort to be as transparent as we possibly can.  Here are the calls that resulted in reports.

20082255:  Traffic Accident.

20082256:  Traffic Accident.

20082362:  On August 17, 2020, we responded to a report of Collision Hit & Run.  The victim reported leaving their vehicle in the parking garage for three days.  During that time, someone collided with their vehicle and failed to report it.  If you ever find yourself in this situation, please stop and at least leave a note.  It’s the law and the right thing to do.

20082381:  On August 18, 2020, at 3:39 a.m., we responded to a Burglary at a local hotel.  When we arrived, we learned the suspect had forced his way into a locked closet and stolen a couple hundred dollars in supplies and signs.  The suspect was known to the employees of the business, had been seen in the area, and had also been seen walking to his vehicle carrying a bundle of stuff.  The suspect was later contacted by one of our sheriff’s office brothers.  We advised the man of his Miranda rights and asked about the burglary.  In addition to having the property in his possession, the 45 year old Alpine, WY man admitted to committing the crime and was arrested for Burglary.  

20082478:  On August 18, 2020, at 5:30 p.m., we responded to a report of a Collision Hit & Run where a black Dodge Ram collided with a motorcyclist and left the scene.  We arrived to make sure everyone was okay and to investigate.  Fortunately, the man was not injured, though his bike was.  He told us he was stopped at Gill/Millward and was proceeding through the intersection to make a left turn.  As he did, a vehicle clipped the back of his motorcycle, knocking him and his bike to the ground.  We have witnesses who may have recognized the driver, so we are doing some follow-up to make contact.  If the suspect reads our blotter, we would like to have him come in to talk to us.  

That’s not a lot of report calls, but there was still plenty of other calls for us to handle.  You have the list below, but that doesn’t really tell the whole story, does it?  Like how we helped someone at the airport who couldn’t get their car out of the parking area, the report of a "weird" man knocking on doors, helping the fire department locate an odor of gas,  resolving a road-rage incident, assisting EMS with a medical call, and resolving a noise disturbance about a loud party disturbing the neighborhood.  

Here is the complete list.  Keep in mind that each one of these calls takes time and creativity to successfully resolve.
