Man’s ex was smoking pot, or not

Print Article

A man called the Columbia Falls Police Department to share that his ex-wife “just drove off with my son and she’s been smoking pot. Wait, perhaps not.” He then hung up and numerous efforts to get in touch with him were unsuccessful. He didn’t give an address, but an officer had plans to patrol the area where the call “pinged.”

An officer freed a deer after it had become stuck in a chain-link fence on Sixth Avenue. The caller said he didn’t want to try and help it escape because it was a wild animal.

A tall man with long hair and a bushy goatee tried to pass a $50 counterfeit bill.

A knock at the door of some allegedly noisy neighbors was enough to quiet the situation that involved a child running up and down the hallways, barking dogs and loud talking.

Halloween may have been over three weeks ago, but a caller told the Kalispell Police Department two kids had thrown eggs at her home and car. But in a move that typically would be considered a surprise, the youths kept a promise to return with a pressure washer to clean up the mess.

A person reported that someone had perpetrated criminal mischief on an inflatable Christmas ornament.

A man who stole cream and tampons from a store was arrested and told to never return.

A member of the West Valley Parent-Teacher organization reported that 10 signs advertising their craft fair were stolen.

A mother brought her 16-year-old daughter to the police station to have a breath test performed because she believed the youth was drinking. When the test was done, it proved the teen had not done what her mother suspected.

Someone wanted officers from the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office to check on the welfare of a man seen walking back and forth and waving his arms around on a U.S. 2 median in Kalispell.

An Elk Park Road resident in Columbia Falls reported a person had gone through his mailbox and broke into his truck, and had a suspect in mind in addition to photos.

Someone’s 16-year-old son may have a cellphone addiction when he was reported wrestling his father, who allegedly was holding the youth down, from taking his phone away at a hotel on U.S. 2 in Kalispell. Law enforcement spoke with the parents, who said the issue stemmed from the youth being caught doing things they didn’t agree with, and, as a disciplinary measure, couldn’t have his phone. Things got heated when the mother attempted to take the phone. The youth was counseled on his status as a juvenile living under the supervision of his parents, in addition to understanding the punishment of losing his phone and gaining the trust of his parents.
