A man wanted to report incidents of vandalism to his equipment to the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office. He said he believed a boyfriend of an upstairs tenant was responsible and now had tracks in the snow to prove it. But his efforts were undone by the fact that there was no damage to either vehicle and the hood of the one truck had been closed, which he claimed had been opened. He was also further undone by the fact that the footprints were covered by snow and the size didn’t match the suspect’s boot size.
A woman reported two of her hound dogs were missing from her yard at a Columbia Falls residence. She said both were white, black and liver colored and both had brown heads.
