Police Blotter

Deputies spotted a car parked in the Jackson Hole High School parking lot at 9:30 p.m. May 11, so they stopped to see what the people in the vehicle were up to. The underage boys were drinking White Claw Hard Seltzer and smoking marijuana, according to the Teton County Sheriff’s Office. A 20-year-old Jackson man was cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and another 20-year-old Jackson man was cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol. A third person was released without citations.

Officers are investigating a shoplifting incident reported May 11 at ACE Hardware. Someone took $37 worth of mulch last weekend without paying.

On Saturday at 3 p.m. Teton County deputies stopped a car for going 72 in a 55 mph zone on Highway 191 near Camp Creek. A deputy smelled marijuana coming from the car. Less than 3 ounces was found after a K-9 alerted. The 27-year-old admitted the pot was his and was cited for possession of marijuana and released.

Someone called police at 4:59 a.m. Friday because teenagers were having a party on their property. “They obviously didn’t know, nor were they invited to the party,” Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said. The juveniles left before police got there.

Around 1 p.m. Friday someone called 911 and said a man was threatening drivers with a gun. Town and county cops rushed to the location, which was near the post office on Maple Way. They determined the man did not have a gun, but he was drunk and violating release orders from the court. The 40-year-old was arrested.

Officers stopped a car for speeding just before 2 a.m. Saturday. K-9 Homer searched the car and sniffed out marijuana and paraphernalia. The driver received a warning.

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