Police Log: Recent calls for service

JACKSON, Wyo. — Here are some recent calls for service in Teton County/Jackson from the dispatch log. Names may be withheld at the request of law enforcement. All persons cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filing from the Teton County Attorney’s Office.

March 28, 8:50 a.m.
Officer Peery responded to a report of Property Destruction. Officers arrived and found a male and female arguing over a parking spot. The woman had apparently taken the man’s parking spot momentarily to pick up some baby formula for her child. The man confronted her and when she tried to explain what she was doing and that she would only be there for a moment, the man grabbed a tool from his truck and broke out her back window. The man said this was an ongoing issue and admitted to losing his temper and breaking the window. Officer Peery cited him for Destruction of Property.

March 28, 4:13 p.m.
Officer Mattson responded to a 911 call, in which a woman was heard to be crying. Officers responded and contacted the parties involved. Initially, they were told over and over again that nothing was wrong and that a child had called 911 by mistake. Officer Peery was also on scene and used his Spanish skills to help figure out what had happened. The best they were able to determine was that a husband and wife had argued and the man went outside to cool off, taking an infant child with him. Officers were not able to determine that a crime occurred and provided each party with a resource card for information about local agencies with resources to assist them.

March 29, 11:47 a.m.
Cpl. P. Smith responded to a report of a Collision Hit & Run at the parking structure. There are video cameras all over the building and he was easily able to identify the suspect and suspect vehicle. He contacted the suspect and issued the 23-year-old Jackson, WY man a citation for Hit & Run and not having valid insurance.

March 29, 6:15 p.m.
Officer Osmond responded to a Welfare Check. It was reported that a woman was suicidal. Officers located the woman, determined that she need help and brought her in for evaluation so she could get the help she needed.

March 31, 10:03 p.m.
Officer Lancaster responded to a report of Destruction of Property. He learned that the victim locks their bike in front of their apartment building. Someone removed the seat and bent the frame. The frame is not fixable, so the victim will have to buy a new bike.

March 31, 11:20 p.m.
Officer Shreve responded to a report of a Collision Hit & Run. The victim reported that he was staying up late to watch some TV when he heard a loud crashing sound from outside. When he went to investigate, he found someone had collided with and destroyed the fence along Scott Lane and left the scene without calling the police or notifying anyone of the damage. Please give JPD a call if you know who this was. The fence owner would appreciate not having to spend their own money on the repairs.

April 1, 11:57 a.m.
Officer Mattson responded to a report of a Domestic Battery. His investigation revealed that no crime had been committed, but an argument over a spouse’s drinking habits. No arrests were made, but we’ll document the incident for use later if this continues to be a problem.

April 1, 6:13 p.m.
Officer Peery responded to a report of fight between two men. It looks like the fight started because someone wasn’t maintaining a six-foot distance. This led to an argument, which lead to pushing, wish ended with fists being thrown. Seems bizarre, but it appears Covid-19 thing has everyone on edge. The victim received minor injuries and the 19 year old Rock Springs, Wy man was cited for Battery.

This one didn’t end up in a report, but it is certainly worth mentioning. On April 1, 2020, at 6:29 p.m., Officer Gerlach responded to a report of a suspicious person. It was reported that a man told a START bus driver earlier in the week that he was COVID-19 positive and that today he was so stir crazy from being on mandatory quarantine that he just wanted to ride the START bus around. The answer was a big, NO, followed by a call to the police. JPD is still looking for the man, but you can be sure if we find him he’ll get a citation for breaking quarantine. He may also be taken in on a mental hold for knowingly risking others to a potentially lethal virus.
