Port Townsend Police Log | Stolen Accord

Posted

The Port Townsend Police Department received a total of 156 calls between Friday, July 29, and Thursday, Aug. 4. Below are selected reports.

At 3:40 a.m. Sunday, July 31, in the 1000 block of Sims Way, a caller told police that they could hear somebody wailing in pain nearby.

Officers found a man on Sheridan Street who was bleeding profusely out of his right arm. The man had extensive wounds on his arm that were almost to the bone, and an officer applied a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.

Police later discovered that the man had attempted to break into an empty residence on Sims Way and received serious gashes on his arm from a glass door in the home.

After applying the tourniquet, officers requested a medical evacuation for the man to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.  Police later learned that the man likely would have died if the officer hadn’t used the tourniquet.

At 2:40 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1, in the 1000 block of 22nd Street, a resident reported that the right side of their vehicle had been smashed. The resident was unsure whether the damage was from a collision or not considering they’d been on vacation and just got back.

Officers took photos of the damage. It didn’t appear that anyone had tried to break into the car, and officers suspected the damage was either accidental or vandalism.

At 10:35 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, a woman in the 4400 block of Sims Way reported that someone had pushed her and yelled at her. She told police that she had video evidence from a dashboard camera.

An officer met with the woman and took a statement, and also took a statement from the alleged suspect. The officer completed a report and filed it with the prosecuting officer.

At 1:50 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3, a shop owner in the 4400 block of Sims Way reported juvenile thieves to police.

The owner said a group of five teens between the ages of 14 and 15 had stolen from their pet store. Officers arrived and detained the adolescents, and they were all trespassed from the business. The shop owner wasn’t interested in pursuing theft charges and the teens were released to their parents.

At 12:50 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, in the 4200 block of Hill Street, an auto theft was reported.

Police were told that a light blue, 1995 Honda Accord had been left unlocked due to mechanical issues with the car’s locking mechanism. The Accord’s spare key was also left in the car. The owner of the vehicle told police that the Honda must have been stolen 45 to 65 minutes before they reported it to police. There are no suspects.
