Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | String of burglaries

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 267 calls for service between Saturday, July 16 and Friday, July 22. Below are selected reports.

At 6:29 a.m. Saturday, July 16 in Chimacum, a break-in was reported at the Chimacum Cafe.

A cash box was found on the floor. No forced entry was apparent to the building; it appeared that an employee may have forgotten to lock the door.

Someone tried to enter the safe but was unsuccessful.

Nothing appeared to be missing.

At 10:29 a.m. Saturday, July 16 in Port Hadlock, a burglary was reported at Ferino’s Pizzeria.

The intruder came in through the back door. A cash box with $500 was missing. Nothing else appeared to have been stolen.

At 3:58 a.m. Sunday, July 17 in Port Ludlow, a break-in was reported at the El Molcajete Mexican Grill.

The glass back door was shattered and appeared to have been kicked in.

Nothing appeared to be missing. Alarms sounded as the burglars entered the building; they then fled the scene.

At 6:55 a.m. Sunday, July 16 in Port Ludlow, burglars broke a window to the pro shop at the golf course and took numerous items, including cash and clothing.

Detectives responded and assisted in the investigation. Items of evidence were collected, and a video of the suspects was obtained.

The alarm at the business was not functioning and did not go off.

At 9:58 a.m. Sunday, July 16 in Chimacum, Spring Rain Farm posted a picture to social media of a suspect stealing from a cash box.

A detective saw the post and contacted the farm.

Approximately $120 was stolen from a farm stand. 

The person on the video was immediately identified by law enforcement. The man had been arrested for a similar crime a month ago in Port Townsend. He had also been arrested for a similar crime in Sequim.

At 12:34 p.m. Monday, July 18 in Port Ludlow, a resident reported getting threatening texts and phone calls from his son in California.

The messages included threats to kill, and the most recent incident happened three days earlier.

The son had been calling and yelling profanities. He accused his family of “fomenting the legal troubles” he was having.

The resident said his daughter was also being threatened. The son had made a statement that he wanted to cut her up in pieces in front of her children.

The caller said the man has serious mental health issues and is a very angry person.

The daughter will attempt to get copies of the messages.

The caller was advised to also contact police in California, as that agency would be the most likely place where the man would be charged.
