Pasco police confront trespassing skinny dipper at Memorial Park pool
PASCO, Wash. — There’s still no word on public pools re-opening in the Tri-Cities, but that didn’t stop this individual from trying to take a dip at Memorial Park.
According to a Facebook post by the Pasco Police Department, officers were sent to Memorial Park shortly after midnight on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. They were responding to reports that a male suspect climbed over the fence and began swimming in the pool located at 1520 W Shoshone St in Pasco. Local authorities made note that the pool was surrounded by a chain-link fence with barbed wire lining the top.
When they arrived, officers made contact with a 23-year-old man from Pasco. He was swimming in the pool completely naked, making it easy for police to locate him. Officers say that the suspect complied with all commands and quickly got out of the pool and put his clothes back on.
Officers say that the suspect said skinny dipping was on his bucket list, though officers say that he was wearing underwear at some point in the pool. The man was cited and released. If you have any contributing information, you can reach out to the Pasco Police Department and case Case No. 21-11651 Trespassing, Officer Tony Grosz.
