Two males and a female were purportedly seen transporting a stolen couch via skateboard in Kalispell.

A Coram resident complained about neighbors “overrunning his property lines” in Coram, elaborating that they were not respecting the boundaries of his property.
A Whitefish woman believed someone broke into her apartment and possibly had a key because “weird subtle things” occurred in the winter such as items being moved around and fingerprints left on a mirror. She purportedly came to the conclusion that it might be a neighbor because she overheard them talking about her and they “knew things they shouldn’t.”
A man allegedly walked into a closed shop and decided to make himself at home when he took off his shoes and started wandering outside. The shop owner asked him to leave, but he wouldn’t and walked back to the shop, so they locked the door and called deputies.
A drunk person was reportedly screaming profanities on someone’s porch in Whitefish and trying to break down the door. The resident said they didn’t know the person, who was wearing a baseball hat, torn shirt and jeans.

A man allegedly kept entering a code for the women’s restroom at a Kalispell campsite and would go in and yell at someone.
Someone took a photo of a vehicle and license plate after reportedly seeing the occupants going through mailboxes in Kalispell.
