May 8, 10:04 a.m.
Officer Figueroa responded to a report of a suspicious person. When he arrived, he found the suspect staggering down the side of the roadway. At one point, the man stepped into the travel lane. When Officer Figueroa contacted him, the man balled up both fists and held them up, read for a fight. Officer Figueroa drew his Taser, called for back-up, and asked the man to calm down and stay still. When the man turned away from him, Officer Figueroa took the opportunity to take him to the ground, rather than use his Taser, and was able to detain the man without anyone getting hurt. The 46-year-old Toppenish, Washington man was arrested for being a Pedestrian Under the Influence.
May 8, 4:26 p.m.
Officer Kynett responded to a report of Theft. The victim reported leaving their bicycle outside their apartment for about one week. Sometime during that week, an unknown suspect stole his $350, black single speed Retrospec bicycle.
May 8 9:01 p.m.
Office Raab and his K-9 partner Homer, stopped a vehicle for doing 62 mph in a 40 mph zone. When contacted, the driver told them he was headed to his girlfriend’s house. Homer sniffed out marijuana in the vehicle, so the 21-year-old Jackson man was given a citation for being in possession of marijuana.
May 9, 12:14 p.m.
Officer Kynett responded to a report of Trespassing. A 60-year-old Jackson woman was refusing to leave a hotel she had been staying at. Police had been working with the woman for some time, trying to connect her with different social services in the community to provide housing, according to Lt. Roger Schultz. At this point, the woman has exhausted all of those services and the only thing police have left to offer is a transportation out of the area to somewhere she can get help from friends or family. She has so far declined that offer.
May 9, 1:18 a.m.
Officer Osmond stopped a vehicle which had failed to use its turn signal. Officer Raab was also with him and while speaking with the driver, they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. They recovered a small quantity of marijuana and seized it for destruction. Officer Osmond and Raab chose not to give a citation to the driver.
May 9, 11:14 p.m.
RO Schmidl responded to a report of a Collision and Domestic Violence on the Refuge Road. RO Schmidl arrived to assist and when it was learned the driver was possibly intoxicated, she did some field sobriety testing. The driver did poorly on the tests and provided a portable breath test with a result of .111%. RO Schmidl arrested the 20-year-old Jackson man for DUI. When the man was booked, he was also found to be in possession of a fake ID. The officer seized it and charged him with that crime as well.
Officer Blair responded to a Shoplifting call. She is still investigating the case, but it looks like someone pulled up to Ace Hardware on Saturday and took $37 in mulch without paying. Officer Blair is going to be looking through the store’s security video to see if the suspect can be identified.
Officer Mattson responded to a report of a Collision Hit/Run. The victim reported being struck by a vehicle backing out of their driveway. The victim was claiming injury and was limping during his contact with Officer Mattson. When Officer Mattson saw the man walking around later, the man was no longer limping. Officer Mattson is attempting to locate and speak with the driver of the vehicle, but at this point, it doesn’t look like there was an injury.
Officer Figueroa responded to a report of a sexual assault. This case is active and involves a juvenile victim, so police won’t be saying anything further.
RO Schmidl responded to a report of Harassment. The victim reported getting repeated phone calls from the suspect about money he though was owed him. No direct threats were made, but things seem to be progressing that direction, so RO Schmidl is attempting to contact the suspect before things get out of hand.
