Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Over the line

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 235 calls for service between Saturday, Oct. 22 and Friday, Oct. 28. Below are selected reports.

At 10:24 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported a theft but the address of the crime was unknown.

A man had been seen going through multiple mailboxes, taking everything.

He was last seen inside the fruit stand.

The owner of the property arrived at the scene and began to pick up the mail so he could deliver it to his tenants.

At 10:20 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 in Port Ludlow, a resident reported an incident of malicious mischief.

Damage to the front door of the home was noticed the day before.

A deputy responded and determined that someone had tried to pry open the door with a screwdriver. The person did not get inside the home and nothing was missing.

The resident bought surveillance cameras and will be installing them.

At 11:43 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 in Brinnon, a resident said someone had cut down trees on the property near their driveway.

The caller thought it was a neighbor who had been cutting trees on an adjoining property but went over the property line while falling trees.

A deputy spoke with both parties, and noted the trees that had been taken down were not far apart.

The neighbor insisted that the trees had been on his property. The neighbor then said he would apologize and work with the other property owner to resolve the issue if the trees were not on his property.

The other property owner told the deputy he was willing to think about a solution but didn’t want to talk to the neighbor about it unless they were willing to work something out.

The deputy took photos in case charges are sought in the future. It was noted that several hemlocks and cedar trees had been downed.
