Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | 'I have lots of bullets'

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 230 calls for service between Saturday, July 2 and Friday, July 8. Below are selected reports. 

At 4:02 p.m. Saturday, July 2 in Port Hadlock, authorities received a report of a vicious dog.

A woman said a neighbor’s chihuahua was trying to bite her children. It’s been an ongoing issue for the past two years.

A deputy responded and talked to the dog’s owner. The dog was currently in her house, and she said her pet had gotten outside by accident.

The woman was told she could be cited if the dog got loose again.

At 7:15 p.m. Sunday, July 3 in Quilcene, a caller said she was worried about her friend’s ex-boyfriend who was getting too aggressive.

The friend lives in Clallam County, and the caller said the ex had threatened to kill any man he found near her. He also said he was going to start searching for her in the Quilcene area.

The caller asked to remain anonymous, but said the ex was known to own a firearm.

She said he wouldn’t stop calling or texting her, and also threatened to throw her things out of his house.

The caller also said the pair were going through a divorce. He sent her a text saying he would run down the beach at Linger Longer, shooting people.

One text said: “Do you want me to shoot people at the beach? I am heading back down there. No answer?? Fine.”

The next text said: “I have lots of bullets.”

The man sent 11 texts in a row. The caller said the man had been drinking heavily and had recently quit his job. He was thought to be at Linger Longer Beach for the fireworks. 

The caller also said her friend was not at the beach.

The girlfriend said she was not afraid of her ex, and that it appeared to her that he was just trying to provoke a response from her by making outlandish statements.

A few more texts followed, with one saying “Do whatever you want.” The last text was about her parents coming to get her stuff from his house.

A deputy contacted the ex about an hour later after he was found in a parked vehicle.

The man was intoxicated and he had a loaded firearm on his hip. He agreed to surrender his weapon and his keys, and he was cooperative with law enforcement. He was picked up by his father and agreed to spend the night at his father’s home.
