A Washington woman reportedly had inappropriate relationships with a multiple minors. After being arrested, the 35-year-old woman allegedly told police that she identified as a 15-year-old boy.
Amanda H. Dorrough, 35, was arrested on May 4 by officers with the Port Angeles Police Department. Dorrough was charged with unlawful harboring of minors after police said that the woman had influenced underaged victims. The Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office also purportedly charged Dorrough with one count of distributing a controlled substance to a minor. She reportedly posted bail on May 14.
Dorrough was booked into the Clallam County Jail, where she informed the staff that she identifies as a 15-year-old boy and went by the name “Taz.”
KTTH noted the incident report said, “While at the Clallam County Jail, Amanda told the staff that she identifies as a teenage boy. The previous week, she told [an officer] that she identifies as a teenage boy. The previous week she told [the officer] that she feels like teenagers ‘understand’ her better and that she ‘identifies’ better with teenage kids.”
According to Peninsula Daily News, “Officers later located Dorrough in the gully sitting next to a student who had been listed as a runaway on May 2. Five other students were located nearby, one of whom was listed as a runaway and one of whom had a juvenile warrant.”
Police found “two empty condom packets, one unopened condom, a bra, and an empty cigarette packet with a lighter” in the area where the minors were found, the police report stated.
Police claimed that law enforcement had received 11 separate reports of Dorrough’s involvement with minors since April 11, 2023.
On May 4, two students allegedly told Port Angeles High School Vice Principal Tiffinny Blore that eight students were planning to run away to Seattle with Dorrough.
Dorrough’s neighbors previously called the police to inform authorities that minors were “constantly” entering and leaving her apartment, according to the police report. One neighbor alleged that the 35-year-old woman was spotted shirtless and braless in the hall with a boy appearing to be 13 years old.
A parent of one of the runaway children said she found her daughter at Dorrough’s home, and her child informed police that she had smoked “shiny” marijuana, used meth, and drank vodka at the suspect’s apartment, according to police.
Fox News reported, “A therapy clinic client reported receiving a tip that Dorrough had a ‘sexting’ relationship with a 12-year-old’ and ‘trespassed from the Boys & Girls Club, by the staff, due to perceived ‘predatory’ behavior,’ police said.”
Dorrough told an underage male that she liked him, but when the minor said he didn’t feel the same way toward her, Taz said she was upset and “almost killed herself,” according to Seattle radio host Jason Rantz.
