Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Dumpster diving

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 239 calls for service between Saturday, Oct. 1 and Friday, Oct. 7. Below are selected reports.

At 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 in Port Hadlock, a theft in progress was reported.

A caller said a man was seen taking items from a dumpster near Carl’s Building Supply.

When the caller confronted the man, he started yelling at her.

The man had a black bag and a bucket with him.

A deputy responded to the scene. The man said he wasn’t rude to the woman, but was collecting a coaxial cable that had been thrown out.

A deputy suggested that if the man handled himself differently, he might not scare people.

At 8:26 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 in Port Hadlock, a resident reported a missing person.

The missing person was described as a 74-year-old man with dementia. He had left on foot.

The man had been sighted at the Keg & I, but was asked to leave after becoming belligerent. He was last seen walking toward the gas station.

The caller said she went to look for the man but could not find him.

A search was launched and a drone operator was called in. It was believed the man may have been headed toward his previous home on Oak Bay Road.

The drone located the man walking near his old place of residence, and he was very thankful to get a ride home.

At 9:56 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 in Port Ludlow, a resident reported hearing several gunshots that had been ongoing since 8:30 p.m.

A deputy responded but did not hear any gunshots or fireworks in the neighborhood.

The officer could hear a party and singing off in the distance, but checked the area and could not find the party. The deputy surmised the noise was probably fireworks from the event but the noise seemed to have ceased.
