Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 233 calls for service between Saturday, Aug. 6 and Friday, Aug. 12. Below are selected reports.

At 7:04 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6 in Brinnon, a caller said a couple people who appeared to be under the influence were in vehicles that were blocking a shared access road to cabins.

The caller thought the group was going to go camping there and suspected they were on drugs.

The caller made a second phone call to say a different group was now on the scene, and it was a bunch of men who were drinking and running up and down the embankment.

A deputy responded and contacted a man who admitted he was there to go camping. He was told he was on private property and needed to vacate the premises. He left after he was able to find his car keys.

At 8:50 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6 in Quilcene, a deputy encountered two people who were in a forested property owned by the Department of Natural Resources.

It appeared the men had been stealing wood.

The men were detained and another deputy responded, and a dark-colored truck with large tires was found nearby. It was full of wood. One of the men admitted to stealing the wood near Penny Creek Road.

A man admitted to felling a tree, and agreed to take a deputy to where the tree had been toppled. The deputy determined the tree had been on National Forest Land.

The wood was left onsite.

Charges will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.

At 3:15 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7 in Quilcene, a woman said she was pepper sprayed by a man when she went to go get her belongings.

She said she had tossed a box of her things to the side and the man bumped up against her and pepper sprayed her through the car window.

A deputy contacted both the man and the woman, and the woman didn’t look like she had been pepper sprayed. There was also no smell of pepper spray on the pair.

A deputy determined the woman had a no-contact order and was not supposed to be at the location.

She was allowed to get her possessions.

Other people at the scene said the woman had been cussing and yelling in front of children and causing a disturbance. They also said no pepper spray had been used on her.
