Police Blotter

Officers were called to several disturbances related to masks last week. On Friday town officers were called to High Country Outfitters because employees there had asked a man to put on a mask, and he became belligerent, so they asked him to leave and he wouldn’t. He took off when he realized clerks were calling the cops. Officers arrived within a minute, but the man was gone. On Saturday they were called to Ace Hardware for the same reason. Employees there asked a 23-year-old customer to put on a mask, and he wouldn’t. Employees said the man became angry and started “swearing at customers.” Officers gave him a trespass notice to not return to the store. On Friday a man at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was also trespassed for becoming belligerent after being asked to put on a mask, according to the Teton County Sheriff’s Office.

A 28-year-old Jackson man was arrested for DUI on Nov. 24 by the Teton County Sheriff’s Office. He said he had wine after work.

A woman called the Jackson Police Department and reported that her credit card and curling iron were stolen while she was here earlier this summer and staying at a hotel in Jackson. She noticed recently when her credit card was being used at gas stations in Jackson, Idaho and Montana. Detectives are investigating.

Officers approached a car where two people sounded like they were having an argument. The car smelled like marijuana, so they searched the car and found a little over three grams of marijuana and a pipe. The California woman also admitted to stealing bowling shoes from Hole Bowl. The pot was taken, and the shoes were returned.

Two teenagers were caught smoking marijuana out of a bong made out of an apple Thanksgiving night in a car that was parked at a church parking lot. An 18-year-old Victor man was cited for possession.

A 44-year-old California man was arrested Sunday for possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana. Officers came across him because he was parked late at night in a no-overnight-parking area. Pipes were visible in the front of the car, Jackson Police Sgt. Russ Ruschill said.

On Friday just before 5 a.m., a taxi driver noticed a man passed out in the middle of West Broadway near McDonald’s. Officers arrived and realized the man got drunk the night before and had likely slept there. Detectives are looking into the circumstances because the 22-year-old was also injured. He was taken to St. John’s Health.

Information in the police blotter is gathered from law enforcement agencies, county courts and sometimes radio dispatch and witnesses. Those jailed are charged, not convicted. — Eds.
