May 18, at 10:59 p.m.
Corporal C. Smith stopped a vehicle for speeding, 40 mph in a 30 mph zone. While speaking with the driver, he could smell the odor of marijuana. Corporal C. Smith had his K-9 partner, Sully, take a walk around the car to confirm what his own nose was telling him. He seized the marijuana and paraphernalia found and cited the 28-year-old Hoquiam, Washington man for possession of marijuana.

May 20, at 6:29 p.m.
Corporal P. Smith responded to a report of a man yelling down by the hospital. He arrived to find a heavily intoxicated man being attended to by medical staff. He learned the man had just been dropped off by another man for treatment. When Corporal P. Smith talked to the driver who’d dropped the first man off, he found him to be intoxicated. That being the case, he administered some field sobriety tests. The 58-year-old Jackson man did poorly on the tests and was arrested for DUI. His portable breath test was a .17%.

Officer Kynett was doing speed enforcement on Meadowlark Lane. Police have received a number of complaints about that street, so she was trying to take care of the problem. While doing so, she saw two men walking down the street one of them pointing at the other. It looked like things were going to get out of hand, so she got out to intervene. She learned that one of the men had been coming into a business for the last week. He hadn’t bought anything and was sexually harassing the female employees and drinking their coffee. That wasn’t okay with the manager and he confronted the man. Officer Kynett issued a trespass notice to the man, so he’s going to have to go someplace else to get free coffee.

Theft (stolen license plate)

Public Service Reminder

The Jackson Police Department would like to ask the community to please secure your bicycles.

“Every year we take over 100 lost, stolen and found bicycle reports. We’ve already had several this year. It doesn’t have to be this way,” said Lt. Roger Schultz. “Buy a good bicycle lock to secure your investment, whether it’s that $50 bike or that high speed $5,000 bike. It won’t prevent all theft, but most crimes in Jackson are crimes of opportunity. Don’t give a thief an opportunity. We would also encourage you to write your serial number down; even take a photos. It will go a long way in helping us identify your bike should it ever get stolen.”
