Police Blotter

Teen regrets: Two teenagers stole $1,500 worth of clothing from a downtown store, only to be caught and forced to apologize. One of the boys was 15, so he was cited and released to his parents. But his 18-year-old co-defendant was arrested on a charge of felony theft. The boys returned six stolen jackets to the store.

Mystery mail: A homeowner called 911 on Thursday after receiving a mysterious envelope in the mail that contained bags of an unknown powdery substance. The powder is being tested.

Wrong way: Police stopped a 48-year-old Seattle woman on Jan. 29 for driving the wrong way down a one-way street. She admitted to having a glass of wine and a “dessert drink.” She was arrested on a charge of DUI.

Creep kicked out: Police were called to The Virginian Saloon because a man reportedly touched a woman’s rear end and chest without her consent. The woman didn’t want to file sexual battery charges, but bar staff wanted the man banned from the property. The 38-year-old was kicked out.

Home invasion: Two drunk females broke into an East Jackson house at 3 a.m. Saturday, tore down some curtains and stole someone’s truck. Police were called, and when they were on their way to investigate they saw the women in the stolen Toyota Tundra. A 33-year-old Jackson woman was arrested on charges of criminal entry, DUI and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Her passenger, a 28-year-old Boulder, Colorado, woman, was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and criminal entry. The defendants pleaded not guilty on Monday in Teton County Circuit Court. They were ordered to not have any contact with the victims.

Caught napping while inebriated: Police officers were on their way to an unrelated call at 11 p.m. Sunday when they saw a man facedown in the snow on a sidewalk. The officers started to check on the man when he got up and started staggering down the sidewalk. The 45-year-old blew a 0.4 percent on the breath test, so he was taken to St. John’s Medical Center for evaluation. Then he was arrested on a charge of public intoxication.

Take me drunk, I’m home: A man got drunk Sunday night at The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. The 40-year-old was slurring his words too much to tell officers where he lived or how he was getting there. He was arrested on a charge of public intoxication, but during his transport to the Teton County Jail he became violent and started banging his head against the patrol car window. EMTs had to treat his bloody nose.

One more beer: A man who was not yet ready to go home was banging on the back door of The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar at 2 a.m. Sunday. The bar was closed. Officers gave him a trespass warning.
