Port Townsend Police Log | Fired and leaving for Las Vegas

Posted

The Port Townsend Police Department received a total of 151 calls between Friday, May 27, and Thursday, June 2.  Below are selected reports.

At 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, May 31, a caller in the 1900 block of Lawrence Street reported a bicycle had been stolen overnight. The theft had occurred some time between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. No serial number or registration for the bike was available, and it was worth around $500.

At 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, in the 900 block of Water Street, a caller reported a fawn that appeared to be injured. They told officers the baby deer may have a broken leg because it kept getting up, then collapsing to the ground. Officers came over to check on the fawn, and it appeared to show no obvious signs of distress. The creature was hiding under a bush and wasn’t flailing, showing any blood or injures, or panting.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, a caller in the 1400 block of Corona Avenue reported that their neighbor had cut down a portion of the fence on her property line. She attempted to stop the neighbor from cutting part of it down, but he continued. He told her that he cut the fence to help deer get out of the yard. Officers arrived at the scene and spoke with the man. He realized that he shouldn’t have done that and agreed to mend it.

At 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 1, an injured animal was reported at the 16th Street and Sheridan Street intersection. The reporting party told police that a baby deer was stuck in a fence.

Officers arrived in the area, helped free the fawn from the fence, then returned it to its mother.

At 11:10 p.m. Thursday, June 2, in the 2200 block of 14th Street, a caller reported an ongoing issue with a neighbor’s barking dog. Officers came over to the area and the canine was no longer barking.

At 11:10 p.m. Thursday, June 2, near the Water Street and Taylor Street intersection, a caller asked police to escort someone away from their vessel.

The unwanted person was a former employee for a ship docked in town. They had recently been terminated and refused to leave.

The employee was from Las Vegas and felt that their employer should be responsible for getting them a ticket home.

Officers arrived in the area, and the former employee left on their own accord to the ferry dock to find a way back to Las Vegas.

At 4:40 p.m. Thursday, June 2, a caller in the 1000 block of East Sims Way reported two dogs in a light blue van that appeared to be in distress. Officers came over but were unable to find the dogs or van.
