Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Get off my boat

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 223 calls for service between Saturday, Sept. 24 and Friday, Sept. 30. Below are selected reports.

At 12:01 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28 in Port Ludlow, a burglary was reported after a neighbor noted an open door and a tractor that was missing.

A deputy responded and found a door to the property had been left open.

An investigation was started and the property owner promised to make a list of the missing items.

At 5:34 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28 in Port Ludlow, a missing person was reported.

A man said his wife was overdue and he had been looking for her for two hours.

She left at 3 p.m. to get gas at the Port Ludlow Village Store. The husband said she could have gone to Safeway.

The woman, 74, was described as having short-term memory loss and dementia.

The husband said he had returned home at 3:15 p.m. and his wife was not home. Her cell phone was still in the residence.

A silver alert was put out to help find the woman.

At 6:30 a.m. the following morning, authorities in Kitsap County reported finding the missing woman. Her husband was contacted.

At 12:51 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 in Port Hadlock, a case of fraud was reported.

A priority envelope was delivered to the county jail that was originally addressed to a person in the Mount Pleasant area of Phoenix, Arizona.

The mail was returned to the jail as undeliverable, and contained a check with a bogus routing number.

The check was for $7,158 and was made out to a resident who lived in Yakima.

A detective determined the mail was part of a fraud attempt; it was destroyed.

At 12:56 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 in Port Ludlow, an unwanted person was reported at the marina.

A caller said the person had hit the caller’s boat while it was in Port Ludlow, and kept coming aboard the boat in an attempt to fix the damage.

The boat owner kept telling the man to stay off the boat, and eventually moved the vessel to a marina in Port Townsend.

The unwanted person showed up in Port Townsend and was trying to get on the boat again.

The boat owner was advised that since his boat was now in dry dock, he should have city police respond and issue a trespass notice if the man returns.

The boat owner said he would have friends in the boatyard keep an eye on the vessel and watch over the boat while it’s out of the water.

At 3:05 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 in Port Townsend, a possible forgery was reported.

A caller noticed strange activity in an account and someone tried to submit a check for $700 after checks had been stolen earlier from a mailbox. The bank froze the account.

There was no loss in money. The bank asked the customer to report the incident to police.

At 12:51 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30 in Port Ludlow, a caller said building supplies were taken from a lot on Paradise Road nearby around 3 a.m.

The caller said two men were seen next to a diesel pickup truck and they appeared to be trying to steal construction materials that had been stacked next to the roadway.

A neighbor heard noises and confronted the men. They quickly left the scene.

The caller said the witness did not want to call law enforcement because he had a police record.

A deputy attempted to contact the Tacoma company that was managing the building project, but a message could not be left because the message mailbox was full.

The caller who reported the crime said he wasn’t sure what was actually missing from the property.
