A shopper looked a bit bulkier leaving a store than when she arrived and reportedly had multiple bottles of alcohol shoved up the high school hoodie she was wearing. She also tried to shoplift some Chapstick and was banned from the store. 

Two youths wearing dark jackets and ski masks were allegedly seen on a security camera doing some sort of countdown and then trying to kick in a resident’s door but were scared off by barking dogs. Kalispell Police Department made contact with a boy hiding behind a trash can. The youths were returned to their parents. 

A man in his 20s was allegedly having relationship issues with a woman he wouldn’t leave alone after she told him she wanted some space. He reportedly caused a scene at a store by showing up and trying to go into the women’s dressing room, yelling at employees that he “identified as a female.” Officers counseled the pair, separated them and arranged a civil standby so they could have a heart-to-heart conversation about their relationship.

A manager at a business asked police to move along a man with a clipboard who was allegedly petitioning customers in the parking lot and following them to their cars. The manager described the man as wearing street clothes that weren’t “professional looking.” The man was gone when officers arrived. 

An employee purportedly found a gun in a bathroom and located the owner who claimed he was a cop.  

A man’s vehicle was reportedly searched as part of his probation and parole when a woman was spotted passed out inside. She allegedly admitted to having methamphetamine in her purse. 

A disturbance was reported in an apartment that smelled of sulfur and air freshener. The people, who were allegedly heard yelling, screaming and slamming things, were separated.
