AG files motion to make Sheriff Troyer pay $10K bail

A hearing on the motion is scheduled for July 1 before Kitsap County Judge Jefferey Jahns.

TACOMA, Wash. — The attorney general’s office on Friday filed a motion to revoke Pierce County Sheriff Ed Troyer’s release condition on two charges he is facing in connection with a confrontation with a black newspaper company that now owns him and the county sued.

If the motion is granted, Troyer would have to post $10,000 bail and strictly comply with an anti-harassment order filed on behalf of Sedrick Altheimer.

A hearing on the motion is scheduled for July 1 before Kitsap County Judge Jefferey Jahns.

Troyer, who has pleaded not guilty, faces one charge of false reporting and one charge of making false or misleading statements to an officer following the Jan. 27, 2021 incident.

Troyer called a department line, which law enforcement used to gather routine information and inquiries, and said several times that Altheimer had threatened to kill him, according to documents with probable cause.

Troyer was formally charged by Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s office after months of investigation.

During Ferguson’s investigation, officers said Troyer told them Altheimer made no threats and that he saw no guns on him when they arrived at the scene.

Troyer was released on personal credit as long as he stayed away from Altheimer and attended all court hearings. The attorney general’s office argues that Troyer violated his release after allegations the sheriff followed Altheimer several times while he was driving his paper route and turning on his lights.

A provisional anti-harassment order against Troyer was issued in May and maintained on June 6. The order, which requires Troyer to remain at least 300 meters from Altheimer and have no contact with him, has been extended until June 6, 2023.

The criminal case against Troyer begins on October 31.
