Police Blotter

Bumper cars: A 24-year-old man collided with a guardrail on Teton Pass at 4 p.m. and kept driving, so a witness called 911. The Teton County Sheriff’s Office arrested him for DUI and no valid driver’s license. The man blew a 0.204% in a field sobriety test.

Lock your cars: Two wallets were stolen out of an unlocked car that was parked on West Kelly. “This investigation is still active, and we would remind residents and visitors to lock your stuff up,” police said on Facebook. “There are some people out there with sticky fingers. Let’s not make it easy for them.”

Drug bust: A probation officer’s home visit turned into police finding 3.74 grams of heroin. A 31-year-old Jackson man was arrested for violating the terms of his release and for possession of heroin.

Bench naps: At 2 a.m. Friday police arrested a man for being too drunk in public. Someone reported the man for being extremely intoxicated. The 45-year-old was on probation, and drinking violates his release terms.

Mountain rescue: Teton County Search and Rescue helped a mountain biker down Snow King on Sunday after he had a seizure while riding. Rescuers used an ATV to get the man down the mountain and to medics.

Too high: The Teton County Sheriff’s Office received a call Sunday about some juveniles trespassing on High School Butte. They must have passed a fence that continues onto private property.

Lost and found: The Jackson Police Department has two wallets and a cellphone that need to be claimed, if you’re missing yours.

Graffiti: Police are looking for the vandals who spray-painted the restrooms at Russ Garaman Park. A smiley face with X’s for eyes was painted, as was 666, TX and the word “ghost” in all caps. Call 733-1430 with info.

This week’s Blotter is shorter than usual based on a change in the Jackson Police Department’s communication protocols announced Monday. — Ed.
