Toledo PD and LCSO
It started out with some folks near the Siletz Library and Post Office becoming concerned about the safety of a “well known town figure” who they said was becoming a threat to herself and others. Witnesses said some of them tried to calm the lady down but to no avail. They described her as having a history of mental challenges, among other things.
A Toledo Police Officer arrived on scene who also tried to calm the woman down but got nowhere as well. Soon he was hand to hand with her. Several local citizens jumped in to help and between the three or four now involved, managed to get her to the ground.
Next came trying to load her into the Toledo Police cruiser. But for that they needed more muscle power than they had on hand, so the officer called for help, and for it to get to Siletz, FAST! They did. And soon the woman was in the back of a Lincoln County Sheriff’s vehicle enroute to the Lincoln County Jail.
All in a night’s work on a warm spring night in Siletz.
