An employee told the Kalispell Police Department one of the individuals was under a broken-down vehicle in one of the bays and belongings were scattered around another area of the business, impeding an employee’s work. The couple had already been told to get going. Police informed them they were no longer welcome at the business and the vehicle was pushed out of the bay.
