Port Townsend Police Log | Here come the rooster

Posted

Port Townsend police received 190 total calls for service between Monday July 12 and Sunday July 18. Below are selected reports.

At 10:40 p.m. Monday, July 12, a caller In the 800 block of Hancock Street alerted officers to a series of shots fired in the area of the Rainier Street roundabout. Officers investigated the area but did not locate anything out of the ordinary.

At 7:39 a.m. Tuesday, July 13, officers responded to a request for contact by a man in the 400 block of 21st Street.

The man complained about a loud rooster who crowed at all hours of the day nearby and wished to see what his options were for remedying the problem.

An officer arrived in the area and contacted the granddaughter of the rooster’s owner.

The granddaughter told police her brother was building a chicken coop in Port Angeles to move the rooster there. She told officers that she would advise police once she’s talked with her brother to give an update on the chicken coop.

At 4:25 p.m. Tuesday, July 13, police were asked to conduct a welfare check for a woman near the 600 block of Cleveland Street who had been seen screaming and crying. Officers responded and checked on a woman matching the description given by the caller.

The woman told officers she was not in need of any assistance and her screams and tears were the result of laughter. The woman was with a friend who had been visiting the area and was actually quite happy.

At 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 14, a caller based in Michigan called police to say she hadn’t heard from her friend in Port Townsend for about three weeks and she was concerned for his wellbeing as he had trouble with his knees and didn’t walk very well.

Officers contacted the man in the 1400 block of 10th Street who confirmed that he was all right and he would call his friend more often to check in.

At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 14, officers located graffiti on a seawall near the intersection of Water and Quincy streets.

Police estimated the damage at $200. There are no suspects at this time.
