The Sheriff is the sheriff of Astoria's Clatsop County Jail.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

The Sheriff has had previous run-ins with Chunk, who had prank called him multiple times, one of which leading to a wild goose chase involving a supposed terrorist hostage crisis at all Sizzler restaurants in the area.

After Chunk escapes from the Lighthouse Lounge, he calls the Sheriff, who refuses to believe his story about the Fratellis murdering someone.

Much later, when the Goonies are saved by cops on Cannon Beach, the Sheriff comes down to handle the situation. He doesn't believe any of the stories about their evening adventure, and only realizes it's the truth when he sees the Inferno sailing out to the Pacific Ocean.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Sheriff is portrayed by Paul Tuerpe.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While listing the fake stories Chunk tried to pass off as legit crimes, he mentions one involving "little creatures that multiply when you throw water on them". This is a direct reference to Richard Donner's previous movie, Gremlins.
