Police Blotter

Indecent adjusting: A woman called police on Saturday because a man had his penis out at a gas station. She was disturbed because the man was gripping his private part with a full palm and fingers in plain sight. Police arrived and the suspect told them that he was simply adjusting himself because “his penis had slipped out of his underwear and it was between his underwear and his zipper.” The 53-year-old Jackson man was cited for public indecency.

Drive-in movies: Someone ran into the Red Box movie rental machine at Maverick with their car and did $3,500 in damage. It happened around 2 a.m. Oct. 1, police said. An employee heard the bang but was too busy to go outside to see what had happened. Video of the collision is pending.

Caught red-handed: A manager at a Jackson motel said one of his employees broke into his on-site room and stole $400 in cash. The manager couldn’t find his money after being out of town so he checked the room key logs. It showed that an employee entered his room while he was out of town, Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said. The employee disputed the claims. The case was forwarded to the Teton County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Trade you a dime bag for an ice axe: Employees at Teton Mountaineering found a bag of cocaine in the store last week. They called police because they weren’t sure where it came from. Officers took the 2.13 grams of drugs. “If someone would like to claim their cocaine at the police department we would be happy to … speak with them,” Schultz said.

$treet art: Someone spray-painted graffiti onto a parking structure downtown sometime last week. They drew a cartoon character with “greed$” next to it. The graffiti caused $100 worth of damage, police said. A can of spray paint was left at the scene so officers gathered fingerprints.

Fruit of the Loin: A Lincoln County teenager who was pulled over for not having license plates on his truck hid his drug paraphernalia in his underwear, police said. Officers also located a jar of marijuana and a pipe. The driver said his passenger was responsible for some of the drugs. The 19-year-old and 24-year-old were arrested for possession.

Coat heist: A man picked up a pile of coats at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar around midnight Oct. 2 and left. Two victims said they had valuables in the pockets of their coats, which the man walked off with. Police aren’t sure if the man took the coats by mistake or if he had malicious intent. “We would appreciate the men who took the jackets to bring them to the police department, so we can get them back to their owners,” Schultz said.
