Police Blotter

On July 15 around 1:30 p.m. police responded to a stalking allegation. The victim told police a man was following her, leaving her notes, getting in touch with her family and parking by her house. Police identified the man and told him to knock it off.

At around 7 p.m. July 15 someone stole an iPad, an Apple TV modem, laundry and a painting from an unlocked home, police said. Police remind you to lock your cars and houses to prevent burglaries.

On Thursday police responded to a man who violated a court order. The man was texting the woman he assaulted, police said. Police told him he cannot contact her and reported the incident to the county attorney’s office.

Police stopped a car going 43 mph in a 30 zone at 9:40 p.m. Thursday. When they approached the car, they smelled marijuana. Asked if she had any marijuana, the 39-year-old Holladay, Utah, woman admitted there was some in the car. A sheriff’s deputy came to the scene with a dog, which found marijuana as well as psilocybin mushrooms. The driver said they were all hers, and she was arrested for possession.

A little after midnight Saturday, a Teton County sheriff’s sergeant stopped a car for speeding near Spring Gulch Road. He smelled marijuana when he approached the car, so he asked the 20-year-old driver if she had any on her. She replied that she was from California, so the sergeant asked, “Oh, does that mean there’s marijuana in the car?” The driver originally said she didn’t have any but then admitted that there was some in the car when the dog began searching. She was cited for possession of less than 3 ounces of marijuana.

A business in town reported that a woman stole $1,940.95 in merchandise Saturday afternoon. Witnesses said she’s about 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighs roughly 100 pounds, has shoulder-length black hair and is probably in her late 30s to mid-40s. She wore dark pants, a long-sleeve white shirt, black-framed glasses and a white-brimmed hat. If you think you’ve seen this person, you’re asked to call the police department.

A local man was bitten by another man’s dog on a pathway Saturday at around 10:49 p.m., police said.

At around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, police stopped a car for going 53 in a 30 zone. Police found a syringe filled with THC “dab” in the car. Since the dab didn’t have much in it, police didn’t write the driver a citation and let him go with a speeding ticket.

On Sunday at 6:48 p.m. on South 89 near Little Horsethief Canyon, a car going 71 mph traveled for 68 seconds toward town before yielding to a sheriff’s deputy’s lights. The deputy smelled alcohol, but the 60-year-old Lincoln County man denied drinking. He failed a field sobriety test and was arrested on a charge of DUI.

On Saturday around 1:30 a.m. police were on a traffic stop when they saw a man screaming and banging on the Wells Fargo building. They checked to see if he was OK. “The man was fine but appeared to be setting up to camp,” Lt. Roger Schultz said. Officers asked him to move along, and he started yelling at them, Schultz said. They arrested the 36-year-old Oregon man for trespassing.

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