Police Blotter

Non-burglar: A man said he went skiing April 8, and when he got home his belongings were scattered all over his house. DVDs and bills were all over the place, there was broken glass and his bedsheets had been messed up, he told police. The weirdest part? There was a dog inside that didn’t belong there. But he didn’t think anything was stolen.

School’s out: A man had the police called on him for sneaking around Jackson Hole High School property at 1:30 a.m. April 9. When deputies arrived they realized he was extremely drunk. He blew 0.363% on a breath test and was arrested for pedestrian under the influence.

Shattered glass: A woman said the back window of her Chevy Tahoe was broken out, but nothing was missing. Police said there were no obvious signs of how the window was broken.

Hit and dent: A black Dodge Durango was damaged while parked on a street sometime between April 4 and 8. There was a 6-inch-wide dent on the right fender, police said.

Whodunit: A Wilson woman said $3,000 was stolen from her house. Police are working leads.

Word scramble: Someone stole some letters from a Melody Ranch sign, police said. Now it spells “Melod Ra.” The letters went missing April 7.

Bullets on board: A man tried to go through the TSA checkpoint at Jackson Hole Airport with a round of 7 mm bullets. They were surrendered at the checkpoint.

Teenage ways: A 17-year-old was cited at Jackson Hole High School for having marijuana, tobacco and a pipe.

Like a country song: A woman was found on a sidewalk near a broken bottle of beer. The woman had a case of beer, too. Some of the bottles had been consumed and broken. Others were still full. Police arrested her on a charge of public intoxication.

Clever drunk: Police approached a man at 12:17 a.m. Sunday after he didn’t want to leave The Rose. When they caught up to him the man was trying to enter a closed store off West Broadway. Police asked the man where he was staying. “Earth,” he answered. Police arrested the 29-year-old Texan on a charge of public intoxication.

Vandalism: Someone reported that graffiti and hate symbols were spray-painted onto signs at the Game Creek trailhead. Police are investigating.

Car pool lane: Police pulled a man over Saturday for expired registration. He said the woman who was in the car behind him was carrying his insurance, so police approached her and found that she had an active warrant on failure to appear for a prior DUI. The woman also had methamphetamine and pills in the car. The 24-year-old was charged with possession.
