Police Blotter

A mail carrier intercepted a package with 22 grams of marijuana in it. It was addressed to a Wilson man from his mother. The Wilson man denied that his mother mails him drugs. The marijuana was taken for destruction, Jackson police Sgt. Russ Ruschill said.

Some intricate graffiti was discovered on the side of a store last week. Some of the tags included “Meek” and “BUKU 2014.” Police don’t think it’s gang or race related. It caused about $500 of damage to the cinder block wall. Some other graffiti was found on the side of a shed on East Hansen Avenue, but it was less artsy. It featured a stick figure and a penis in black spray paint.

A man was walking near the Jackson Police Department on Sept. 30 with a bong and an open bottle of vodka. The 23-year-old Jackson man said he’d found the bong and thought it was his lucky day. Ruschill said he was cited and released.

A man locked himself out of his car, so he called the police to come help him. When police got the car open they smelled a strong odor of marijuana. The 22-year-old Indiana man was cited and released for having just over 6 grams of pot.

The Jackson Police Department confiscated a shotgun shell out of someone’s carry-on bag at the Jackson Hole Airport.

A drunk man who refused a cab ride home was later found passed out face down in the grass. The 27-year-old Jackson man was arrested for public intoxication.

A man who was being aggressive was kicked out of a brewery. The police gave him a trespass warning to not return.

County deputies stopped a car near Highway 22 and Skyline Drive on Thursday for going 40 in a 30 mph zone and for not using a turn signal. Teton County sheriff’s Sgt. Clay Platt said the 43-year-old Lincoln County man blew a .084% at the Teton County Jail. He was arrested for DUI and cited for possession of marijuana.

On Sept. 29 a 22-year-old California woman was arrested for public intoxication after an argument. She blew a 0.252%.

The Jackson Police Department continues to get calls about a man they believe is preying on women in East Jackson late at night. On Thursday a resident reported that someone came in their house on East Kelly, ran upstairs and then quickly left. A 25-year-old woman was worried because her neighbor’s house had been broken into the week before. Police also got a call about a suspicious man hanging out in an alley around midnight Sept. 30. The man was watching a woman when she got out of her car, police said. Police continue to encourage residents to lock their doors and windows and report any suspicious activity.

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.
