A man who was afraid of “big money on the East Coast” told the Kalispell Police Department “my life is being threatened by two big corporations and I don’t have time to explain it right now.”

A man wearing a red shirt, driving a red truck, attempted to break into another man’s garage. When an officer drove by, he said there were multiple red trucks nearby.

An unlucky woman’s phone screen froze and dialed 911.

A woman’s car broke down and she was told she could leave it in a parking lot, but then a manager wanted her and her vehicle to leave.

A social media user sold a camera worth $1,200 and received a fake digital payment.

A property owner asked two middle-aged men hanging out by garbage cans to move along.

A man received a warning that his computer was being hacked, then he gave gift cards and money from his bank account to someone over the phone. He told the police the person he gave the money to was from another country.

A young woman stuffed items into her purse at a store, then dumped them out. It was unclear whether she was trying to steal from the store.

A man who threatened to “shoot it out with law enforcement” was forbidden from returning to his ex’s residence.

A woman said she heard “loud popping noises like firecrackers” in her parking lot, but she didn’t need law enforcement’s assistance.

A woman went to get her phone fixed and realized she didn’t have the phone. She suspected a man who had been removed from her residence stole the phone.
