Law roundup: Turkey unaware Thanksgiving’s coming

| October 19, 2021 12:00 AM

A wild turkey made itself comfortable in a woman’s Sixth Avenue house and she called the Columbia Falls Police Department for help getting it out. It left through a window.

Three girls standing under a light on Seventh Street were allegedly swearing and yelling “nasty things,” to a woman and her children, causing her 9-year-old to cry.

An apartment management business believed an evicted woman was still on a First Avenue property where a “junker trailer” was located. They also claimed she was likely on meth.

A woman reportedly learned her dog was dying on its way to a pet emergency clinic and wanted to speak to an officer because she thought her ex made the dog ingest poison to get back at her. She said she would pass along a vet report. Possibly the same woman later was involved in a disturbance on Second Avenue, where she and a man were arguing in the street. Officers determined mutual pushing occurred between the two in attempts to prevent the man from getting into his residence and prevent the woman from trying to get inside. She volunteered to leave.

Another call came in from Second Avenue where a woman wanted to report harassment. Dispatchers could hear a man yelling something in the background about getting arrested. She wanted an officer to call her back.

Dispatchers called a phone number associated with a 911 hangup and a man, who slurred his words, answered asking, “Who are you and what is your business.” Dispatchers identified themselves and reportedly asked him to provide an address for the fourth time when he hung up.

Someone on Talbot Road allegedly wanted to pass along information to a school resource officer regarding a 13-year-old who was vaping.

A woman wanted to speak to an officer about a scammer she reportedly met on an online dating site but had not sent any money to. She was counseled to block all communications and ignore false threats.

Someone on Nucleus Avenue called officers when they allegedly saw an unsupervised 2- to 3-year-old in a running car. After 10 to 15 minutes, a bearded man with long hair got into the car and drove away.
