Port Townsend Police Log | Windstorm woes

Posted

The Port Townsend Police Department received a total of 176 calls between Friday, Nov. 4, and Thursday, Nov. 10. Below are selected reports.

At 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 4, a welfare check was made in the 400 block of Walker Street for a man who said there was someone invisible in his apartment, and that someone had tapped on his foot.

The man told police that he’d smoked cannabis prior, but had never had a reaction like the one he was having at the time. Officers checked in with the man, who said he will speak with mental health professionals about the situation.

At 11:40 a.m. Friday, Nov. 4, in the 3900 block of San Juan Avenue, an assault was reported at a nearby school. Police were informed that a student had been stabbed with a pencil, and the student had to be taken to the hospital to remove it. A report of the incident was taken.

At 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, a student in the 1500 block of Van Ness Street was found with drug paraphernalia on school property. The student could potentially receive a minor in possession charge, and the case was forwarded to the county prosecutor’s office.

At 2:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, a man in the 1500 block of 19th Street was reported by residents after he was seen looking through a mailbox that wasn’t his and attempting to look through a resident’s window into their home.

The suspect was described as a man with a dirt bike. Officers drove to the scene and searched for the man, but he was not found.

At 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, in the 1600 block of Grant Street, a student reported a suspicious blue car that blocked their path near the elementary school. Responding to the suspicious activity, officers conducted extra patrols in the area in case the blue vehicle came back.

At 9:50 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, a caller in the 1200 block of 12th Street told police that a nearby tree had toppled onto a home during the windstorm. Nobody in the home was injured.

At 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, a caller reported a burglary in the 600 block of Rainier Street, with someone attempting to break into a trailer outside the store. Employees reported damage to the trailer outside the business. The suspect was unknown and employees weren’t sure what was missing, but an officer located stolen merchandise in the 2000 block of Discovery Road. A police report was taken.   

At 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, near the 12th and Landes streets intersection, officers were in Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park searching for a suspect with a warrant, but came across an intoxicated juvenile in the park. The teen was extremely drunk and non-responsive to the officers. The officers located the teen after hearing loud voices in the park, and discovering three minors with one of them throwing up in the dirt.

Emergency medical services were called for the intoxicated teen. Officers administered first aid to keep the teen conscious and breathing, and the minor was driven to the hospital. The teen was later released from the hospital to the youth’s parents.

The warrant suspect was eventually found.
