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.
May 1, 10:43 a.m.
While investigating another case, Officer Figueroa received a report of a domestic assault. A woman reported that her boyfriend slapped her during an argument and struggle. Police are still trying to locate the boyfriend to get a full accounting of what occurred. Depending on the outcome of the investigation, the man could be cited or arrested.
May 3, at 5:11 a.m.
Officer O’Donnell responded to a report of Theft. The victim reported leaving their bicycle under a tree, unsecured. During that time, someone took their $900, black Jamis Sputnik track bicycle.
“This happens to many bike owners during the summer months,” Lt. Roger Schultz says. “We encourage everyone to lock your stuff, so a thief doesn’t come by and take what’s yours.”
May 3, 5:49 a.m.
Officer Blair responded to a disturbance call in which a woman yelled to neighbors out her window asking them to call 911. Someone did and officers responded to investigate. Officer Blair determined that no crime occurred, but that the women was pulling the electrical receptacles apart because she believed they contained bugs to spy on her. Officer Blair did not believe this was the case and called the building management to have them repair the exposed wiring. The woman was released to the care of her family.
May 4, 2:53 p.m.
RO White responded to a report of an Assault. The assault occurred three years ago but the victim was asking that it be documented now. There is no Statute of Limitations in Wyoming so, technically, the case can be prosecuted with enough evidence.
“That can be challenging with a case this old, but not impossible,” Lt. Roger Schultz says. “The victim is unsure if they want to move forward, but we’ve started the report in preparation for their decision.”
May 6, 1:47 p.m.
Sgt. Ruschill responded to assist Probation Parole. They had one of their probationers whom they needed to be taken to the jail. He was apparently intoxicated and telling his probation officer he would fight with the police if they came for him. Sgt. Ruschill brought two Teton County deputies. The 32-year-old Jackson man was arrested without incident.
May 6, 4:19 p.m.
Sgt. Ruschill responded to a report of Harassment at a business. The business reported getting both email and mail communication. Police are not releasing any other information on this to protect the privacy of the individual and business involved.
May 6, 7:38 p.m.
Officer Gerlach responded to a report of an animal attack. He learned that a vet-tech was bitten by a cat several days ago and was now being medically treated. This may not seem like a big deal, but dogs, cats, etc. are potential carriers of a near 100% lethal disease called rabies. That’s why it’s critical all pets are vaccinated and that you exert the proper care and control over them to make sure they don’t bite, Schultz advises.
May 7, 7:41 p.m.
Officer Raab responded to a report of a stolen firearm. The victim reported leaving the firearm in his unlocked vehicle over the course of several days. During that time, someone stole the weapon from its hiding place.
The police department’s fear is that this stolen firearm will end up in the hands of a juvenile who could accidently hurt themselves or someone else, or that it could be used by an adult with the same result.
“Please, if you keep firearms in your vehicle, lock the doors…every time. It only takes a second. Property securing and storing your firearms is your responsibility,” Lt. Roger Schultz says.
