A woman called the Kalispell Police Department alleging that a MacBook Air delivered to her husband’s business address was stolen. Although the package was sealed with tape, there was nothing inside and the store told her to report it to the police. It was unknown if the laptop was stolen or if the box was shipped sans laptop. There were no cameras at the site to aid in the investigation.
A man allegedly shoved a “fairly elderly” woman he had accused of stealing from him months ago and went back to his apartment. The person calling to report the incident said there were no weapons visible but that the suspect was a “pretty good boxer.”
A woman and a man allegedly showed up at a bank in a limo and an employee called the police because there were allegations of elder abuse and her taking advantage of the man to get his money. Officers were made aware the woman was reportedly bipolar, anti-law enforcement and carried a gun, and the man was a known offender. Both were made aware that they were banned from all of the bank’s locations.
A man out walking was reportedly yelling at passersby. Officers made contact with him and he said he wouldn’t yell at people anymore that day.
A woman “covered in hoodies” was allegedly seen beating a black lab on some steps. Officers counseled the woman. They noted that the dog appeared alert and well.
Someone was reportedly so scared about lights being turned on in a house across the street that they called the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office multiple times and used 911. The caller said there were 15 lights on, alleging that was uncommon, and wanted deputies to check it out. Then, the caller dialed 911 to request extra patrol and was reminded that 911 was for emergencies only. The individual called back a couple more times because they hadn’t seen any deputies out patrolling.
A vehicle slid on the road, hitting a guardrail. No injuries were reported.
People allegedly let their dog run loose and it went over to dine on a neighbor’s garbage in Kalispell.
In Whitefish, a brown and a whitish dog were reportedly out chasing someone’s vehicle.
