Investigation finds no tribal authority for detention of hunters at gunpoint in Brinnon


State and county investigators believe that two Port Gamble S'Klallam Natural Resources tribal officers acted improperly and without authority when they detained three hunters near Brinnon on Oct. 3. "Presently, our investigation shows that no hunting violations occurred, no trespass took place and no crimes were committed by the hunters," state Department of Fish and Wildlife Deputy Chief Mike Cenci said Tuesday.
