'I'm not making this up' | Jefferson County Sheriff's Log

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 217 calls for service between Saturday, Jan. 1 and Friday, Jan. 7. Below are selected reports.

At 1:31 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 1 in Port Hadlock, a woman said her daughter had just left her house. She said she found drugs in the daughter’s bathroom, and said she didn’t want drugs in her house.

A deputy contacted the woman and was given a plastic bag with what appeared to contain methamphetamine.

The drugs were booked into evidence for destruction.

At 4:51 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 2 in Port Ludlow, a caller reported being threatened by a roommate. The roommate had threatened to shoot the caller.

Both people were still in the house, and the person who made the threat was refusing to leave.

Dispatchers were told the roommate may be intoxicated. 

A deputy determined no credible threats had been made and the caller did not feel threatened. The caller was feeling remorseful for calling authorities and felt bad for the roommate, who had started drinking heavily again. The caller said the incident started with a verbal argument that escalated.

A deputy educated all of the parties about how to apply for a protection order.

At 5:52 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 2 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported suspicious circumstances.

The caller was at her neighbors, and said her daughter had been hacking her phone and television via a passageway under her home.

The woman believed her daughter had cut a hole in her home’s sub-flooring and was sneaking into her house. She was also very concerned about a cable and electronics wiring that was coming through the floor into her home.

The woman ripped up the carpet where she thought there was a hatch underneath.

The woman begged a deputy to go inside and look.

The deputy noted the sub-flooring that was normal in appearance, and found printed lines on the plywood, which did not seem odd. The deputy also checked out the wires and everything was normal.

The deputy determined that there was no validity to what the woman had reported. The woman’s fears appeared to be completely meth-induced, and the woman was advised that if she addressed her drug problem, the paranoid thoughts would go away.

The woman denied it was possible that it was drugs that was making her see things and said, “I’m not crazy; I’m not making this up.”

She said she thought the sheriff’s office was not taking her reports seriously.

A deputy recommended that she seek assistance, but she declined.
