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

At 10:59 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12 in Port Ludlow, a resident was told by a neighbor that someone had tried to break into his home while he was out of town.

The caller said he was five hours away from home but on his way back.

It was determined that a burglary had occurred sometime in the past four days. The home had been ransacked, and a vehicle was also stolen from the driveway.

Investigators took photographs and attempted to get a fingerprint off a broken bedroom window that the intruder had used to gain entry to the home.

The home had an alarm system but it had malfunctioned.

The man and his wife said they would make a list of the missing items.

At 1:47 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12 in Port Hadlock, a man said he had an unwanted person on his property. Someone had put up a tent in his backyard, and he said he had not confronted whoever was living in it.

A deputy found a woman who was known to live on the adjacent property in the tent.

The deputy determined the woman was probably unaware of the location of the property line.

The woman and the man she was camping with were asked to take down the tent and move. They did.

At 2:24 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 in Port Hadlock, an employee of a building supply store wanted a woman who had been caught shoplifting to be trespassed from the store.

At 2:29 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 in Port Hadlock, a resident found a large rock that had concerning messages written on it.

The caller found the rock in her driveway on Saturday, and thought it had been left overnight.

The stone was covered with messages written in purple ink.

On one side, the message said: “Wife swap. I have Dan’s soul and he has Howard’s wife swap.”

Along the side of the rock was the word “swapped.”

The woman did not recognize the names on the rock.

A deputy took photos of the stone.

At 5:42 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 in Port Hadlock, a woman said her son had gotten upset and had broken the windshield on the car an hour earlier.

The son was last seen in the front yard five minutes before, but had since disappeared.

The caller said her son had left in a vehicle in an unknown direction.

A deputy contacted the caller, and said she has been dealing with truancy court trying to get the son help for his anxiety issues.

The son was upset on the way home from court that day and hit the windshield with a glass bottle, causing spiderweb cracks in the glass.

The woman did not want to press charges and just wanted to get her son help.

At 10:43 a.m. Friday, Oct. 14 in Port Hadlock, graffiti was reported on the basketball court and on a bathroom wall at the park in Irondale.

At 5:40 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14 in Brinnon, locks on a stacked container structure had been cut off and 40 sheets of plywood, a Champion generator, and miscellaneous tools were stolen.
