Police Blotter 2022

Bad mama jama: On Dec. 27 at 6:50 p.m., police responded to a report of an irate woman at a bar. An altercation began between a bouncer and a 51-year-old Alabama woman when the bouncer refused to give her 20-year-old son’s fake ID back. Dispatch could hear the woman yelling in the background and telling the bouncer the ID was not his property. Law enforcement arrived and cited the 20-year-old Alabama man for possession of a fake ID. It was not returned.

Take your plates: On Dec. 27 at 3:51 p.m., a 36-year-old Jackson man reported that his license plates were being charged $158 in tolls on I-80 in Pennsylvania. The man told officers he had sold his Chevy Tahoe in July, including the license plates. He learned of the toll charges Dec. 13. The man was advised by law enforcement that in Wyoming, when someone purchases license plates those plates belong to the person, not the vehicle. “It is always in the seller’s best interest when they sell a vehicle to remove those plates and either transfer them to your new vehicle or return them to the treasurer’s office,” Lt. Russ Ruschill said. Ruschill said the Jackson Police Department sees this frequently. The man sent the police report to Pennsylvania to show he wasn’t responsible for the charges.
