On Going Stalking Complaint – NW Main St – A male called to report that his now ex-girlfriend continues to call and text him. The male told deputies that although he was not to have contact with the female, per his parole officer, he continued the relationship including spending a weekend trip at the coast with her. The male then decided that he should no longer have a relationship with her and ended it. The female continued to attempt to communicate with him after being told not to. The male later applied for and was granted a stalking order. After being served with the order, the female still attempted to contact the male. The female was later taken into custody and lodged at the Washington County Jail. Upon being released from the jail, the female went to the courts and applied for a restraining order against the male, which was granted and later served to the male.
