Police Blotter: Forsaken Fillets and a Felonious Feline

Two callers reported 20-40 eagles feasting on discarded fish fillets conveniently left in the back of a pickup truck, and the sheer number of eagles made it difficult for other drivers to safely access vehicles parked nearby. An officer scared the eagles away and advised the owner of the pickup to properly dispose of the fish.

Drunk Disturbance
A home drunk reported that a visiting drunk had struck him in the face. When police arrived at the home drunk's residence, he said he had no desire to pursue charges against his assailant. The officer advised the visiting drunk to leave. She did.

An officer convinced a man who had reported his backpack was stolen from a foyer while he was outside smoking, that he really ought to check the last place he had been before he stepped outside to smoke. Though the victim was certain his backpack could not possibly be there, he was pleasantly surprised to find that in fact it was, with all items intact.

Caller reported a possibly intoxicated driver. Officers contacted the suspect and found that he was not intoxicated but rather a new driver using an iPod and cell phone while attempting to safely control several thousand pounds of metal and rubber. The officer issued the young man a warning.

Assistance Rendered
Officers spoke with an estranged wife who was incensed that her husband was allowing another woman to live in a house and drive a vehicle legally controlled by both the husband and wife. The wife insinuated there might be negative repercussions if the other woman were still present when the wife returns. The officer advised the wife against this course of action.

Boarding house resident reported a man had just been beaten with a stick. Responding officers found that the victim had been struck across the side and back of his head with a 2x4 after he and a companion were accused by a vehicle owner of somehow damaging said vehicle. Several witnesses provided information which lead to the arrest of [a man], 41 yoa, of Unalaska, on one count of Assault II.

Caller reported a possibly feral feline with no collar was seen near a dumpster. An officer patrolled the area without finding the felonious feline.

The eagles must have thought they found a "Michelin" star restaurant. This was a very good read.
Cannot imagine things like this happening in the lower 48:)

This reminds of me of the police blotter in the small town I grew up in. Thanks for sharing!

Fiona, Dutch Harbor is the home of crab fishing fleet as seen on the Discovery Channel. It's a ... boisterous place.

TB, you're welcome. I was with a small-town P.D. 35 years ago, and this blotter reminds me of that place, too. :)

Felonious feline? Animals are committing crimes, now? :-)
Nice this made it into the police blotter. Slow night for the constabulary?

Guffaw, I imagine it's Sgt. Shockley's way of keeping routine from being boring. And it works. :)

Wonder if someone snapped a picture of all those eagles?

Rev. Paul said...

Yep, they did.

Everybody's got to be some place, ma'am. :)
