Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | 'Sucked into criminal activity'

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office responded to 333 calls for service between Friday, Sept. 3 and Friday, Sept. 10. Below are selected reports.

At 3:26 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4 in Sequim, a part-time resident said two tiny homes on a property on Chicken Coop Road had been broken into.

Multiple items were taken.

The burglary happened sometime in the past month while the resident had been away.

The victim planned to put together a list of missing items and email it to police. The caller would also prepare an estimate of damage made when the thief entered the tiny homes.

At 3:28 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4 at Lake Leland, a resident who lives near the shore reported a boat towing someone at a high rate of speed.

The speeding boater was in a large white speedboat, and the caller said the incident had been going on for 10 minutes.

The boater was going at least 15 to 20 mph, while the speed limit is 5 mph.

A deputy contacted the boater, who was staying at the campground. He was told he would be trespassed from the lake if he continued to violate the boating speeding limit. The boater promised there would not be any other calls or issues in the future.

At 4:17 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4 in Quilcene, a caller said several people were throwing fireworks into the river while fishing.

The caller had been advised by Fish and Wildlife to call 911.

A deputy responded and spoke with three fisherman in the area. They had not seen anything amiss or had heard any fireworks.

At 10:14 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4 in Sequim, a caller near Craig Road said someone had entered his vehicle and stolen luggage, a large computer, and his wallet.

A deputy responding to the call found a briefcase in the intersection of Craig Road and Chicken Coop Road. More items were found in the bushes nearby.

The caller was contacted and identified the briefcase as his. Everything else that was missing was also found in the bushes, including his wallet and his computer. It looked like the wallet was discarded in a hurry as it did not appear to be amiss.

It was speculated that the thief had been listening to a police scanner and had to ditch the stolen items quickly as a deputy responded to the 911 call.

At 12:17 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 5 in Port Hadlock, a man said two DVDs had been stolen from his residence.

A deputy made contact with the caller, who did not let the deputy into his tiny home. The man made a comment about possibly misplacing the two DVDs, which were from a set, because of his age.

He also made a comment about being “sucked into criminal activity,” but would not elaborate when asked.
