Police Blotter

Smoking in the girls room: A principal at Summit High School found a vape pen and marijuana in the girls’ restroom, Teton County sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Stanyon said. A small tin container had marijuana inside it, and they found a makeshift aluminum foil pipe. A 14-year-old girl was cited for possession of tobacco, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance in a school zone.

Puppy problems: A 36-year-old Jackson woman cannot keep track of her dog and she’s been cited several times for it, police said. On Oct. 30 a concerned neighbor called police because the woman’s dog was roaming around outside when temperatures were in single digits. The dog wasn’t wearing a collar so officers took the pup for its safety. About an hour later the dog’s owner called looking for her dog. “The dog has been called in as missing 51 times,” Jackson police Lt. Roger Schultz said. The woman has been cited five times this year for dog at large, Schultz said. The German shorthaired pointer was returned to her owner. Police withheld the pup’s name for its privacy.

Lock it up: Deputies are investigating a theft of a wallet, $600 cash and pricey prescription sunglasses out of a truck that was parked in a Melody Ranch driveway. The Toyota Tundra was unlocked when the theft occurred on Oct. 29 or 30, Stanyon said. The victim’s Air Pods were also stolen, he said.

A lifetime of bad luck: Police were called to a hotel parking lot just before 2 a.m. on Halloween for two men who were reportedly punching out car windows in the parking lot. Officers found the men, and one of them had a bloody hand. It turns out they had punched and shattered a rear view mirror, not a window. A 26-year-old Michigan man was arrested for public intoxication and destruction of property. His 24-year-old accomplice from Idaho was arrested for public intoxication.

Mean messages: Someone reported a threatening message to deputies that reportedly said, “I will stab you in the ass with a fork.”

Ouch: A man was passed out on the sidewalk in front of the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar at 12:40 a.m. Friday. Officers tried to wake him, and when the man tried to stand he rolled over on his knees and hit his face on the ground. As he was being taken to jail, the man vomited in the officer’s patrol car. The 26-year-old from Yonkers, New York, was arrested for public intoxication.

Creep alert: A man in his 60s has been harassing teenagers at a bus stop near the schools, police said. The man asked a group of girls if they wanted to play a game, and he wanted to guess their ages and crushes. The students were scared so they told school staff, who reported it to police. “We have a possible name, so if we can identify him we will have a talk with him,” Schultz said.

Mystery pills: A driver who was going well below the speed limit and swerving on the highway was pulled over Friday evening. The woman driving the minivan said she had only had one Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. The 25-year-old Alpine woman nearly fell down while performing a field sobriety test, deputies said. Police found marijuana and five clear pills with an unknown white, powdery substance in them. The pills have been sent for testing, Stanyon said. The woman blew a .254% and was arrested for DUI.

Stranger danger: A drunk man stumbled into a woman’s apartment at 1:45 a.m. Saturday and passed out on the living room floor, police said. The 24-year-old Indiana man was arrested for criminal entry.
