Jefferson County Sheriff's Log | Terrible 12-year-olds

Posted

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 272 calls for service between Saturday, July 30 and Friday, Aug. 5. Below are selected reports.

At 5:19 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4 in Port Hadlock, a caller said two 12-year-olds were harassing the caller’s 9-year-old daughter.

The boys followed them when they were going to QFC the night before and called the girl names and said she was fat.

The boys live in an apartment complex near the trailer park where the girl lives.

The caller was advised that children cannot be prosecuted for name calling, and the way to resolve the problem was for the parents of the children to have a conversation.

At 10:59 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4 in Port Hadlock, authorities tried to contact the owner of a stolen vehicle after it was found abandoned near Ninth Avenue and Kinkaid Street.

The car owner’s phone was not working, so a neighbor was contacted. The neighbor offered to go the car owner’s house, wake him up, and have him call authorities.

At 6:17 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5 in Port Townsend, a man went to the hospital for treatment of an animal bite.

He said a dog came out of the woods and bit him. He had bite wounds on both arms and his left leg. 

The man said he would be at the hospital for a while because the wounds needed to be cleaned and he would have to have stitches.

The dog was described as black-and-white in color and did not have a collar.
