Monday Dispatch: Public Intox and Commercial Burglary

(Jackson, Wyo.) – Here is a recap of local dispatch and law enforcement activity from yesterday in the Town of Jackson and Teton County. All persons arrested or cited are presumed innocent until proven guilty. There were 44 calls to the area dispatch on Monday, March 28. *Crime Reports and Arrests * Public Intox: Early Monday morning at 12:16 a.m., Jackson Police officers responded to a report of a man who found an intoxicated female in his house, whom he didn’t know. When officers arrived, the female was lying on the sidewalk. She smelled of alcohol and was slurring her words. The female told officers, “I’m just going to lay here, it’s fine.” Since the temperatures were in the 20’s and it was also snowing, officers decided it was not ‘fine’ and arrested Kayla Fowler of Polson, Montana for public intoxication. Commercial Burglary: At 11:26 p.m. on Monday night, a Jackson Police officer observed a subject ride his bicycle behind a business. It was late in the night and the business was not open, so the officer went to investigate. The officer heard noise coming from a freezer attached to the business. A subject walked out of the freezer, carrying merchandise from the business. The officer asked the man how he was doing and the man immediately confessed he did not have permission to be on the property to take anything from the business. The officer thought this was wrong, and against the law, so arrested Tyler Wight of Jackson, Wyoming for burglary. *Collisions * Yesterday, there was one auto collision that involved injuries. *Other* Other dispatch reports included animal control calls, lost and found property, citizen assists, road hazards, driving complaints, and motorist assists. #buckrail #news
