Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Super soaker

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 240 calls for service between Saturday, April 16 and Friday, April 22. Below are selected reports.

Ludlow, a caller near Paradise Bay Road said a kid in the neighborhood had been playing with an air horn earlier that afternoon. Another resident had yelled at the kid, and when the caller went over to speak to the person, he saw the man was armed with a white-and-green “super soaker” squirt gun.

When the caller went to “have some words with him,” he got sprayed with the super soaker.

The caller said that upon being hit with the liquid, he immediately noticed it smelled like urine.

The neighbor then threw the super soaker into the easement, where the victim retrieved the squirt gun.

The victim showed the squirt gun to a deputy, who noted, “based on training and experience,” that the inside of the super soaker did indeed reek of urine.

A deputy tried to contact the suspect, but he did not come to the door or answer his phone.

A report will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.

At 10:58 p.m. Sunday, April 17 in Port Townsend, a man said a neighbor’s door was wide open but he said it didn’t feel like a good idea for him to check the residence.

A vehicle was at the home and the lights were off. The owners of the home live in San Diego, California, but the residence is used by their daughter.

A deputy responded and found a door not fully closed. It was not locked and it had been windy that day. There were no signs of a break-in or any criminal activity.

The deputy locked the door.

At 10:56 a.m. Monday, April 18 in Port Townsend, officers were called to the homeless camp near the mill.

The owner of an RV said it had been ransacked and destroyed.

The woman said she had been in rehab with her boyfriend, but returned to find it had been burglarized and several items were missing.

A witness at the camp reported a woman had brought him a jacket and speaker from the RV, and said she had taken items from the RV because the couple had owed her money.

Another witness reported seeing her leave the RV with a clothes hamper.
