Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Burglars in the neighborhood

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 257 calls for service between Saturday, Oct. 8 and Friday, Oct. 14. Below are selected reports.

At 1:27 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported a burglary and the loss of a welder and tools taken from inside the house.

A potential suspect was identified.

At 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11 in Forks, an inmate of the Olympics Correction Center was injured in an assault and taken to the hospital in Forks.

The inmate said he was hit several times on the head with a rock and also repeatedly punched.

The inmate and his assailant were separated.

Photos were taken of the injured inmate.

At 3:08 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12 in Port Ludlow, someone tried to break into a home.

The caller saw two men who had their hands on a window on the porch. Both were wearing hats and were bundled up.

Once the house lights went on, the pair disappeared into the dark.

Deputies arrived and checked the residence. They found a screen that had been removed with finger smudges. Wet shoe prints were found leading up to the deck from the main yard.

Deputies checked the area and two nearby homes. One residence had an open door, but everything seemed to be in place inside the home.

A deputy discovered a lock on the door could not be locked.

Law enforcement checked the area but did not find anyone afoot.

At 10:54 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12 in Port Ludlow, a caller reported getting harassed on the phone.

The person said the name of the suspect was Karen, but later said her name was Kathy.

He said he had a five-minute conversation with the woman while they were at Walmart. She was in a white Jeep with Colorado plates.

He said she had since called his wife to say that he had been talking to her, and she said she needed to get a restraining order against him.

The man said nothing in the woman’s story to his wife was true.

He was told to block the woman’s number.

The man called authorities the next day and had additional texts from the woman. He said they weren’t harassing messages, and he had since come to believe that the woman was really trying to reach out for help.
