Law roundup: Baker is toast after burning bread

| October 5, 2021 12:00 AM

A baker in Columbia Falls accidentally set off a business alarm when they took bread out of the oven late at night.

A man in Columbia Falls allegedly threatened to stab a woman “39 times.” Someone who intervened told the Columbia Falls Police Department he was headbutted by the threatening man.

A man called police because he was worried about another man who appeared to be changing out his gas tank on a road. The caller said he did not think this was safe.

A driver repeatedly slammed on the brakes and came to a sudden, complete stop in the middle of U.S. 93.

A woman reported a motorist who was “aggressively revving their engine.” She said, “this feels threatening and suspicious.”

A woman wanted to report a crime but she said she “didn’t want to write it out.” Instead, she typed her statement.

Someone threatened a woman with a hammer and threw either a paint can or a coffee can at her boyfriend.

A man who received a speeding ticket wanted to know the “minimum price” for the offense.

A woman said she knew about a woman who might have been trying to sell heroin, but she didn’t have any other information about the alleged drug dealer. All she knew was the woman may live in Columbia Falls.

A man reportedly texted a woman after he was served with a temporary restraining order against her. He claimed, “he had not read [or] understood all of the contents of the TRO.”
