Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Time for you to go


The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office responded to 318 incidents between Saturday, July 10 and Friday, July 16. Below are selected reports.

At 9:46 a.m. Wednesday, July 14 in Nordland, a man known to the sheriff’s office as overstaying his welcome at places throughout the county was now on Marrowstone Island.

He was not acting violent or aggressive. A deputy contacted the man and advised him not to return to the property.

At 1:11 a.m. Thursday, July 15 in Port Ludlow, a caller said someone was inside a neighbor’s house and was walking around with a flashlight.

The homeowner was not at the residence at the time, and the caller said the property is usually gated and the caller did not hear or see a vehicle approach.

The neighbor offered to open the gate so a deputy could access the property.

The homeowner then contacted police and said he could see two people on the property via a security system.

Deputies responded but could not find anyone on the property.

At 1:12 a.m. Thursday, July 15 in Port Hadlock, a resident called 911 after seeing a prowler on a doorbell camera.

Someone rang the doorbell and then quickly departed. Upon further review, the suspicious visitor appeared to be a kid.

A deputy responded and found two young teenagers running down Chimacum Creek Drive.

The pair admitted to ringing several doorbells at neighboring homes as a “ding dong dash.”

The pair had been staying at the same home for the night.

A deputy awakened one of the boy’s father and he was given receipt of the pair.

At 2:23 p.m. Thursday, July 15 in Brinnon, a theft at a vacation property was reported.

The theft happened between July 7 and July 11. Stolen items included a gas can, a gas-powered crab-pot puller, an orange kayak from Walmart, and a boat battery.

All of the stolen items had been left inside a boat that was stored in the open. The loss was estimated at $1,500.

Access to the property was made by a gate that had been taken down and not put back up.

At 7:26 p.m. Thursday, July 15 in Chimacum, a caller reported animal abuse. The caller said 25 to 30 or more pot-bellied pigs were being kept on a property, and they were always getting out and they didn’t have water or food. One of the pigs had been hit and killed on Somerville Road.

The “somewhat old” remains of a small pig were found on the roadway.

An animal control officer will follow up on the report.

At 10:54 a.m. Friday, July 16, a search-and-rescue team helped retrieve a 17-year-old who had fallen ill on the trail to Buckhorn Lake.

The teen had a fever, was weak, and was vomiting.

The rescue team tried to take him out on a rolling stretcher, but the bumpy ride was too much for the teen, who was then assisted in walking the three miles to the trailhead.

He got back to the trailhead by about 5 p.m.

At 2:11 p.m. July 16 in Port Hadlock, a worker said a woman came into the business and started screaming, cussing and throwing things.

The woman was a former employee who had recently been let go. She had come in for her paycheck, but no one at the business had the authority to give her a check. Law enforcement advised the woman to return when the owner would be there on Monday.
