Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Smirking and texting

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 252 calls for service between Friday, Dec. 30 and Friday, Jan. 6. Below are selected reports.

At 11:35 a.m. Friday, Jan. 6 in Brinnon, a caller reported the theft of two large, new canvas carports that were still in the box.

A fire pit was also missing.

The items had been taken sometime since Dec. 20.

At 2:14 p.m. Friday, Jan. 6 in Port Hadlock, a caller reported a daughter who was receiving text messages that threatened her life.

The person sending the text messages said they were on their way now.

The caller said it was unknown who was making the threat, but the suspect knew the caller and the daughter by name.

The person texting threatened “to come bash their brains in.”

A deputy was unable to determine who had sent the texts, but a further investigation said it was likely someone the daughter knew from school.

The beef had started with words being exchanged between the two, and one of the girls said she was going to beat the other up when she saw her again.

School officials were notified of the situation, and the family of the other girl was contacted.

The suspect’s family said they would mitigate the issue, include taking away the girl’s phone if it was determined their daughter had sent the text.

The other family took similar steps, and also had the other girl’s number blocked so their daughter would not feel compelled to respond and escalate the situation.

The caller’s daughter did not seem concerned about the whole affair. A deputy noted she did not appear to take anything seriously as she was smirking and texting her friends the whole time.

The girl was advised to not have any contact with the other girl. Her mother said she would do her best to make sure the situation would not continue.

The school said it would set up counseling sessions.

At 3:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 6 in Brinnon, a property owner on the Dosewallips River said someone had stolen things from a shed on the property.

An arc welder and cable cutters were stolen.

When going to ask a neighbor about the burglary, the caller could see the stolen items in the back of the neighbor’s truck. The caller retreated and called authorities.

The caller said the neighbor had earlier asked to buy the stuff but was told no.

A deputy responded and went to the neighbor’s after visiting the site of the theft.

The neighbor admitted that she owned the truck but said she had bought the cutters “from some guy with a black Honda Civic” for $40 and gas money.
