Can't treat an old man like that | Jefferson County Sheriff's Log

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office responded to 194 calls between Saturday, Aug. 28 and the morning of Friday, Sept. 3. Below are selected reports.

At 11:31 a.m. Monday, Aug. 30 in Forks, a deputy was flagged down by someone on U.S. Highway 101 near Milepost 178.

The man reported a 13-year-old girl who had been sent nude pictures by a suspect in nearby Beaver, south of Lake Pleasant, two years ago.

The man was put in contact with the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office.

The man also gave the deputy some mushrooms but did not want to tell the officer much more. He was vague about the origin of where they came from but said he was going to try to talk to his son about it. 

He said he would turn the mushrooms over to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office.

At 4:11 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30 in Chimacum, an unwanted person was reported on a parcel of land that did not have an address.

The caller did not live in Jefferson County but was a property owner, and had been told by a neighbor on Peat Plank Road that squatters had been seen on the caller’s land.

The caller told authorities that no one had permission to be on the property.

It was later learned that the intruders were likely from a neighboring property, and had been evicted from that land two weeks earlier.

A family living in a trailer had apparently moved their trailer from the land where they had been evicted to the adjacent property.

A deputy offered to attempt to get the trailer removed, and noted one of the residents of the trailer had been staying in the Jefferson County Jail.

At 5:34 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30 in Chimacum, a woman who refused to give her name said she had been assaulted by another woman in the parking lot of the Chimacum Post Office.

She refused to give her name or provide a phone number for a deputy to contact her. She also declined an offer of medical aid for assault.

The woman insisted she was injured but refused to describe her injuries. 

She also refused to say where she was located and then disconnected the call.

Authorities determined the woman was having mental health issues.

At 7:29 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30
in Quilcene, an Olympic car trailer was found backed into the bushes off of Old Tarboo Lake Road.

The trailer did not have a license plate.

Some small pieces of cedar had been left on the trailer, as well as chains, binders and other rigging for stealing timber.

At 7:33 p.m. Monday, Aug. 30 in Port Ludlow, a case of malicious mischief was reported.

The caller said he had an argument with a woman but it was verbal only. She also threw a rock through a window in his fifth-wheel trailer, which had left him bleeding.

The incident had happened the day before.

The man was distraught, and wanted law enforcement to tell the woman that she can’t treat an old man like that.

The man then began crying and said he wanted to beat her head in with a baseball bat. He also noted he had been sober for a year.

The man sounded very intoxicated during the call. He was advised to avoid the woman.

At 11:03 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31 in Port Hadlock, a man reported that an old Ford van had been left on his property about a week earlier.

The vehicle belonged to a person since deceased, and the caller said he was asked to do work on the van by another person who had dropped it off.

Since that time, the caller said he had heard the man who had brought the van over to be worked on had a criminal past, and may have been hiding the van from the actual owner. 

The repair man had the title for the van, and had intended to buy it from the actual owner. He also said he had been driving it around.

The caller said he didn’t want to get involved at this point and was having the vehicle removed from the property.
