Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | The No. 1 drug house

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 244 calls for service between Saturday, April 30 and Friday, May 6. Below are selected reports.

At 2:03 a.m. Monday, May 1 in Port Ludlow, a caller said the dogs at a nearby home had been barking nonstop.

A deputy went to the neighborhood and parked. With the patrol vehicle off and the windows down, multiple dogs could be heard very clearly barking.

The address of the home where the dogs were at was quickly determined, and law enforcement noted there had been multiple issues in the past about dogs at the location.

A report was forwarded to an animal control officer for a follow-up visit.

At 10:57 a.m. Sunday, May 1 in Quilcene, a John Deere tractor was reported stolen. 

The tractor was a model 1025R and had been fitted with multiple attachments.

The theft occurred sometime within the past few weeks.

An investigation is ongoing.

At 11:01 a.m. Sunday, May 1 in Brinnon, a security officer with Rayonier reported a case of malicious mischief.

A gate to the timber company’s land had been broken five miles up Mount Jupiter Road.

The Rayonier employee had cameras at the site but was unable to immediately review the footage.

At 6:17 p.m. Sunday, May 1 in Port Ludlow, a resident on Paradise Bay Road called to complain about “the No. 1 drug house in Jefferson County for the last 25 years.”

The caller said the distribution of hard drugs at the house in the neighborhood had been escalating, and multiple vehicles and people were seen coming and going.

The resident described the visitors as “typical meth-type people.”

The caller said he saw multiple people go into the house and told authorities “he knew what was going on.” 

The resident was frustrated by the situation, and was told by a deputy that the report was noted and law enforcement was aware of the address and the people who were at the property.

At 7:30 a.m. Monday, May 2 in Brinnon, a caller said neighbors had repositioned a truck by backing it up to their deck at around 10 p.m. the night before, and the caller thought that was strange.

Then, at about 2:45 a.m., a loud argument was coming from the property.

A gunshot was heard at 5 a.m.

The caller said the neighbor was known to carry a firearm. The caller also said he had no issues with the neighbor, but just wanted to report the situation.

A deputy went to the home and no one answered the door. Nothing suspicious was observed during the visit.
