Port Townsend Police Log | Plant-based beef

Posted

The Port Townsend Police Department received a total of 156 calls between Friday, June 17, and Thursday, June 23. Below are selected reports.

At 4:20 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, an injured deer was reported in the 1000 block of Wilson Street. The animal was unable to move and officers put the deer down. The city was advised for removal of the animal.

At 12:50 p.m. Thursday, June 23, a resident in the 1200 block of 32nd Street told police she’d seen a man come into her yard and acting suspiciously.

After talking to him, he told her that he was with the Republican Party and that she needed to put a sign in her yard. He was wearing a helmet and was described as heavy-set. Police drove to the resident’s home, but the man had already left by the time they got there.

At 1:10 p.m. Thursday, June 23, a caller in the 600 block of Water Street reported an auto theft to police. They told dispatch that they’d parked their maroon-colored vehicle on the street and couldn’t find it and suspected it was stolen.

Five minutes later, the caller contacted police again, saying that they had found their vehicle.

At 10:50 p.m. Thursday, June 23, near the Point Hudson Marina, a caller reported suspicious activity in the area.

They said that they saw a spotlight coming from a suspicious boat pointed directly at their vessel. Officers arrived in the area and searched around for the boat. No suspicious boat was located in the waters nearby.

At 11 p.m. Thursday, June 23, an employee reported a theft in the
400 block of Benedict Street. At a nearby garden center, a man was seen taking items and plants from the back of the store.

When confronted by the store owner, the man said an employee told him the section was a free area and he could take all the dying plants. The owner told the man that there was no free section in the store, then called the police.

The case is still under investigation as police look into store video and audio of the incident to determine if an employee told the man he could take anything for free.
