Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Rats in peril

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 230 calls for service between Saturday, July 9 and Friday, July 15. Below are selected reports.

At 1:42 p.m. Monday, July 11 in Port Ludlow, an employee with the water district said a lock had been cut off a water meter sometime in the past few days.

A house had been for sale and a proposed buyer had been trying to get a water test report finished without success before the damage to the lock was discovered.

At 1:02 p.m. Wednesday, July 13 in Port Hadlock, a person who was taking temporary care of a child who had been placed in the home by Child Protective Services said the mother of the child had been making threats about the child’s emotional support animals.

The mother was threatening to give the child’s rats away if he didn’t come home.

The caller wanted the incident documented.

At 2:43 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, a caller in Seattle reported a case of fraud.

The caller had mailed a $2,560 check to a person in Quilcene, but it was signed by someone else. 

After further investigation, authorities determined that a bank error had been made and no fraud had been committed.

At 3:37 p.m. Wednesday, July 13 in Port Hadlock, a caller who had made an earlier complaint about the parent of a CPS placement again contacted authorities.

The caller said the child’s father had come to the home and wanted to talk to the child.

The man was still outside.

The caller thought the man was not supposed to have contact with the child.

A deputy responded. It was determined no paperwork had been filed to prevent the father from contacting the juvenile.

The father did not want to remove the child from the home, but just wanted to get the Nintendo Switch game console.

At 8:18 p.m. Wednesday, July 13 in Port Hadlock, repeated silent 911 calls were coming from a location that had a history of domestic violence.

A third call was also received, and a male voice could be heard in the background.

Dispatchers called again and spoke with a woman. She said her boyfriend had just gotten home and two people who walked by threatened to shoot him and burn down the house.

The woman thought they were under the influence.

A deputy patrolled the area and did not find anyone matching the description of the pair.
