The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 177 calls for service between Saturday, Dec. 25 and Friday, Dec. 31. Below are selected reports.

At 2:44 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 29 in Brinnon, dispatchers received a call about a man from previous reports who had complained of being sick.

The man, 60, had fallen into the water next to his boat at the dock at Pleasant Harbor Marina.

He was pulled from the water and was taken to the marina office. 

An aid crew responded.

The man said he had tried to take his boat out but fell into the water.

At 3:19 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 30 in Port Hadlock, a woman said she found two guns in a lockbox that she did not own.

The woman said someone stole a set of keys to get into her home and open her small gun safe.

She said two guns that she owned, a .38-caliber and a .22-caliber revolver, had been stolen but two other guns, also having the same calibers, were left in their place.

A deputy determined the woman was having a mental health issue. She was told it was unlikely that someone would steal her guns but replace them with identical caliber firearms.

At 10:34 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 30 in Port Hadlock, a woman who had earlier called about stolen firearms now thought someone was hiding in the crawlspace under her home.

She said she saw footprints leading under the house, and added that her phone line had been cut.

The woman wanted to meet with a deputy at the library.

A deputy contacted the woman, who admitted to using methamphetamine the day before.

She said people were under her house and also in her ceiling. She refused to speak with a Navigator, but also did not want to hear anything the deputy had to say or consider any suggestions that were made. 

When asked if the woman wanted a deputy to do a walk-through of her home, she said no.

At 10:52 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 30 in Port Hadlock, a person from the boat school said a transient man was threatening to beat up a school employee.

A deputy responded and the man was leaving when the officer arrived. He said he just wanted to pass along the title for his boat and wanted to leave the area for Seattle.

The employee said they didn’t feel threatened but just wanted the man removed from the area.

At 5:09 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 30 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported two suspicious vehicles parked on a property where there had been a house fire.

The caller said no one should be on the property, but two people had been seen walking around with flashlights.

A deputy responded but found no one on the property.

At 11:31 p.m. Friday, Dec. 31 in Gardiner, a caller said someone was parked at the end of their driveway and was revving their engine. The caller didn’t think they were stuck.

The resident called back a few minutes later and said the vehicle had left.
