Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Boy shoots neighbor with BB gun

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 257 calls for service between Oct. 24 and Oct. 30.  Below are several notable incidents.

At 11:47 a.m. Oct. 24, police were called to a storage facility on Walker Way in Port Ludlow where several units had been broken into.

Five separate units had been forcibly opened by thieves who had cut through a security fence to gain access to the facility.

Exactly what items had been taken was not immediately clear, nor the exact time and date of the crime, which was ultimately reported by a customer. 

Renters of the affected units are being notified, police said, and will compile a list of what, if anything, was taken.

There are no suspects and the investigation remains in progress. 

At 1:28 p.m. Oct. 24, a motorcycle was reported stolen in Brinnon.

A blue-and-silver Yamaha YZF-R3 was stolen from where it was parked in front of a general store on Hjelvicks Road. 

The theft occurred sometime overnight. The bike had expired tabs and a dead battery.

There are no suspects and no security footage.

A stolen vehicle report was issued and the investigation continues.

At 1:58 a.m. Oct. 25, possible drug paraphernalia was found in a cell at the Jefferson County Jail.

A corrections officer discovered two small pieces of foil in a bottle cap. One of was clean but the other had black marks inside, possibly heroin residue, police said.

It was uncertain to which inmate the contraband belonged.

At 1:35 p.m. Oct. 28, police were called to a home in Chimacum in response to an alleged assault.

A woman, 69, said she was being attacked by a man from whom she is separated but who is co-owner of the house in which they both live. 

He was mad, she explained, because she wants to sell the house and threatened to break all of her belongings before allegedly proceeding to attack her. 

The man, 71, hit and pushed the woman and was eventually “knocking her around” outside, police said. 

Upon arrival, deputies took photos and statements and the man was ultimately arrested. 

At 10:16 a.m. Oct. 29, police were called about a Forks woman threatening to shoot her neighbor’s dogs. 

The caller owns a rental property on G&L Shake Road. The elderly couple staying there have told them the woman next door has repeatedly threatened to shoot their dogs if they come onto her property. 

It was ascertained no crime had been committed. 

The house’s owner, who lives outside Jefferson County, was advised to more clearly mark the property boundaries and warn renters to keep their dogs away from the neighbor’s property. 

At 2:47 p.m. Oct. 29, a Nordland man called police to report he’d been shot by his neighbor’s young son. 

The boy, 10, allegedly shot the man with a BB gun after firing in his direction three times. Whether it was intentional or simply careless, the man could not say.

Police spoke to the boy’s father and emphasized the need for safety. He complained of “voyeurism,” saying the gun only fired about 20 feet.

No threats had been made and police found no assault had taken place.

A report was filed.
