A Bigfork man may be watching too many forensic and crime dramas on TV when he reportedly expected Flathead County Sheriff’s Office to do some kind of forensic investigation on a picture on his phone because he thought it was a fake photo and didn’t look like what someone told him. He said if the photo was “false” he believed it would be a felony. He was advised that’s not a service law enforcement offers like they do on TV and could take his phone to a private party. He said, OK, goodbye.
