Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | When an escort calls

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 310 calls for service between Saturday, Aug. 20 and Friday, Aug. 26. Below are selected reports.

At 1:39 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 in Port Hadlock, emergency dispatchers received a call and could hear someone screaming in the background.

It was determined the screams were coming from a 13-year-old boy.

A woman said her son was unable to find his phone and was throwing things around. He had no history of behavior problems.

A deputy spoke with the woman and learned the woman had shut off her son’s phone to discipline him, but her son woke her up and wanted his phone back.

The boy was calm when he spoke with a deputy. He was advised that he would be better off following his mother’s rules.

An hour later, a 911 hang-up call was received from the same home.

A deputy responded and found everything was OK. Everyone had been sleeping and there were no issues.

At 8:40 a.m. Wednesday,
Aug. 24
in Port Hadlock, a county parks employee requested assistance in removing people in Space 3 who had overstayed the 10-day camping limit and hadn’t paid for their time.

They were now harassing other campers.

A deputy contacted a man at the campsite; he was given two hours to pack up and leave.

The county park’s department was contacted and advised of the two-hour warning. Parks employees said any property left behind by the camper would be secured until it could be moved.

A deputy returned to the scene two hours later and found the man had left, but some of his possessions were still there. It was decided to leave the items as-is until the next day in case the man came back to retrieve his stuff.

At 12:38 p.m. Wednesday,
Aug. 24
in Quilcene, a resident said a neighbor yells at everyone who comes to the caller’s home.

The caller said it was a dispute over well rights, and the neighbor believes anyone who visits will end up using water.

The resident was advised to seek an anti-harassment order through the court.

At 6:16 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 in Port Hadlock, a man was in the parking lot at the sheriff’s office and wanted to talk to a deputy.

He said he had gotten drunk the night before, and due to a lack of of judgment, he made a phone call to have a visit by an escort.

The man sent a payment, but said he didn’t know if it was a scam because the escort never arrived.

He said he was now getting threatening texts from the number that he used, and the threats were directed at the man and his family. He was frightened and crying, and said the texts included his previous addresses. He did not want people to know he was trying to pay for an escort.

He said he didn’t think they knew his current address.

It was determined the texts were coming from a number in Texas, and the threats were an apparent scam.

The man was told to block the number and to call 911 if anything suspicious happened. He was also advised that the scammers may try to call from another bogus number, and he may have to change his phone number in the future to avoid additional contacts.
