Police Blotter

Deputies cited a 22-year-old Jackson man for possession of marijuana Saturday after he forgot to use a turn signal turning onto Broadway from the National Elk Refuge. They could smell marijuana coming from the car, Teton County sheriff’s Sgt. Clay Platt said. The driver handed the deputy a joint and said that was all that was in the car. They searched, found some paraphernalia that belonged to a 24-year-old passenger and let the two go with a citation and a warning.

A man made a theft report at the Teton County Sheriff’s Office for some skis that were stolen out of the back of his truck in January. The $1,300 Salomon skis were in the back of his truck in the Cody parking lot at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort when they went missing, the man told deputies. He noticed the next day and had been checking with security at the ski resort to see if anyone turned them in. Deputies asked why he waited three months to make a report. “I got busy and I’m lazy,” he said.

An unknown suspect led officers on a high-speed chase through town March 24 around 10:30 p.m., Jackson police Sgt. Tony Matthews said. It started when they tried to pull over the white Honda Civic for a lane violation. The suspect started driving erratically and reportedly went 80 mph eastbound on Broadway before eluding police. Officers often call off car chases for the safety of the public. They announced the car over radios, but no other law enforcement caught up to the suspect. If you witnessed the chase and believe you have information you’re asked to call the Jackson Police Department.

Officers arrested him on charges of property destruction, littering, theft and pedestrian under the influence.

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.
