Wednesday 2-25-09

12:17 a.m. Beach Road in Bigfork is OK.

I feel safe don’t you feel safe?

1:44 a.m. A man was yelling and slamming doors at an Evergreen motel. Reportedly he may have tossed a couple back.

A couple of what? Doors? Beers?

8:13 a.m. Someone was upset because a camera was positioned at the end of their driveway on Magstadt Lane. Apparently, their neighbor put it there for reasons yet to be determined. The parties, though, reached an amicable resolution.

Somebody is watching you....

10:41 a.m. Reportedly, allegations have been made in the past, but according to a man on Beach Road in Bigfork, things aren’t how they seem. Everything is OK and reports otherwise are unfounded.
Once again crime fighting at it’s best!

11:42 a.m. A Columbia Falls Stage woman said a man threatened her. It’s not sure how.

Lady: Officer a man threatened me.
Officer: Yes, ma’am can you give me the details.
Lady: No
Officer: Ok, HOW did he threaten me.
Lady: I don’t know
Officer: Did you accost you on the street with a knife?
Lady: I don’t know.
Officer: Did he threaten you by phone?
Lady: shrugs her shoulders
Officer: Did you send you a threatening letter?
Lady: Looks around then looks at her feet and mumbles “I don’t know.”
Officer: Lady just HOW were you threatened?
Lady: I don’t know.
Officer: Walks to his patrol car and bangs his head on the hood

1:36 p.m. It’s not entirely clear what happened, but a man may have been exposing himself to employees at a coffee shack in Evergreen. Someone, who didn’t see anything, made the report.

Huh? Does that mean the flasher had a really teeny weenie?

1:40 p.m. Someone was drunk driving through a trailer court.
Well THAT’s a shocker!

3:07 p.m. Two female siblings had nasty things to say to each other. So they did it over the telephone.

1:47 a.m. Beach Road is safe.
Again I feel safe.

Thursday 2-26-2009

8:43 a.m. A woman said that an abusive telemarketer threatened to “come blow her head off.” It’s not clear what the man was selling.
Maybe he was selling guns.

11:22 a.m. A woman’s granddaughter said she saw a neighbor strike his son in the head with a metal bar on Solberg Drive. The son, who is on probation, was OK. The father was interviewed and the case has been referred to the county attorney.

Hum maybe this is why the son is on probation. He was hit in the head one too many times.

12:09 p.m. Smoke was billowing from the Lazy Day trailer court. Sheriff Mike Meehan said, “it looked like a pretty good fire.”

Did he bring the marshmellows cause I have the chocolate bars and graham crackers

12:43 p.m. A man on Beach Road in Bigfork called the sheriff’s office three times in 24 hours. Reportedly, he used to send handwritten notes via fax, but has since been blocked because of his excessive communication.

Now how are we supposed to know everything is alright on Beach Road if you block his correspondence?

4:44 p.m. A 27-year-old woman was busted for stealing cosmetics at Kmart.
Really? Kmart? I mean if your going to chance getting busted you couldn’t go to the MAC counter?

Friday 2-27-2009

10:44 a.m. There was an angry but non-violent youth in Bigfork.
Was he on Beach Road?

3:21 p.m. A 19-year-old male made a trip to Montana from out-of-state only to be arrested for shoplifting at Wal-mart. He stole acne medication

Wow he must have some really big pimples!

3:40 a.m. A person was ticketed for parking in a handicap space at Wal-mart.

Well when you steal acne medicine you park in the handicap space so you can have a quick get-a-way

12:48 a.m. A man was standing outside a woman’s window trying to get her attention at the El Rancho in Evergreen. Apparently, he was speaking Spanish.

El Rancho….speaking Spanish…. Maybe he thought he was home.

Saturday 3-3-2009

1:59 a.m. A person said that "after a big fight” their tire was slashed. Upon investigation, however, it turned out that a rock was in fact the culprit.

Hey let me tell you, I’ve gotten in fights with rocks before and they always win!

2:43 a.m. A man’s ex would not stop banging on his door until she got a ride elsewhere from law enforcement.
Elsewhere? Like Where Stalkers Anonymous?

3:28 a.m. Someone repeatedly called the juvenile detention center and yelled vulgar things.
HOW Juvenile!

10:44 a.m. A woman who was supposed to have moved her horses from a man’s property on Montana Highway 206 failed to do so before the man became enraged. Apparently, he told her that he would shoot and eat the horses if she did not move them immediately. He then fired three warning shots into the air.
Wow he must have been hungry. I mean to eat a whole horse.

8:22 p.m. A woman was upset about the parking fee she had accumulated at the airport. After a loud discussion, she left without paying.
You can do that? Just not pay and leave? I one time had a $200 parking bill at an airport. They wouldn’t let me out until I paid it.

9:42 a.m. A husband and wife were arrested for stealing $50 worth of clothing from Wal-mart. Reportedly, the man had $400 in his pocket.
Evidently he wanted to KEEP his $400.00

3:43 a.m. A male called his mother in Bozeman and told her that he had been involved in a rollover, but didn’t know where he was, except in between Bozeman and Whitefish. The person and vehicle were found in Missoula County.
Drunk much?

HAAAAA I am loving the teeny weeny comment! Guess you should make sure you have something to show before you go flashing...

Ok now the mystery I've been thinking about for weeks is cleared up, he's been faxing in his reports; now he's blocked and has to call again. Bet he still uses a corded phone.Wait until he discovers email. Maybe he'll send pictures showing that everything is fine. The possibilities are endless for this gem of a creature with WAY too much time on his hands.

VE said...

You'd have to be drunk to go to a trailor court in the first place. Crazy stuff this reality...

"A 19-year-old male made a trip to Montana from out-of-state only to be arrested for shoplifting at Wal-mart. He stole acne medication"

Well...maybe he didn't want anyone from home to KNOW that he has acne???
So he had to drive out of state to buy the acne medication.
Makes sense to me.

"There was an angry but non-violent youth in Bigfork." How in the world is this any different from any other youth. If I had to live in a place called Bigfork, I'd be angry too.

Jaime said...

love the guy whose tire got into a fight with a rock. i hate it when that happens!

Bob said...

I'm so glad I don't live in a high-crime neighborhood like you do. Just the other day I was telling Joyce, "I feel real safe living in an area where so many police officers live."

She inquired, "What makes you think we have neighbors who are policemen?"

That was easy, "I figure cops turn off their sirens whenever they arrive home and we hear police sirens stopping in our neighborhood all the time."

So like I say, I'm awful glad I don't live in a high crime area like you do.

I wonder how half these people get into the situations they find themselves in. But good thing they do, because it gives us something to laugh at.
