A sampling of crime briefs from the Kalispell Police and Flathead County Sheriff’s reports…by Heather Jurvis (comments by Gladys)
2:01 p.m. A Shar-Pei and a Pit Bull ran at large on Hidden Lane.
First of all could they run any other way? Have you seen the size of those dogs? Second of all I wonder if they were hiding?
5:20 p.m. Someone on Tamarack Lane in Columbia Falls reports that a bear has been eating the meat out of their outdoor freezer.

Well she said she was a cheap date.
4:14 p.m. A resident of Martin City reports that someone was running around their house and hiding in the bushes. The subject was described as wearing a puffy dress with long johns and pants underneath.
I know who it was. It was the Tooth Fairy!

Did they follow the yellow trail in the snow?

Did they pass go? Did they collect $200?

Was it Bigfoot talking to the Tooth Fairy?
10:01 a.m. Three goats are in the habit of wandering onto a neighbor’s property on Helena Flats Road.
Hum, maybe it was the Three Billy Goats Gruff or perhaps Nanny Goats In Panties and her friends.
10:48 a.m. Apparently, a man’s estranged wife has “half of the Valley” out looking for him with the intention to end his life.

Really? Do you think the mountain lion had insurance?
4:06 p.m. A man was seen sitting in his vehicle near a local convenience store with a hatchet on his lap. When asked what he was doing, he claimed he was just “killing time.”
He was just waiting to bury the hatchet in Mr. HalftheValley’s head.
Well there is another one after Mr. HalftheValley. I see a conspiracy theory brewing.
8:41 a.m. A garage door on Valley Drive has been mysteriously opening when the homeowner isn’t around. Recently, part of a deer carcass went missing from the open garage.

First of all Dun Movin Lane? Second of all a YEAR ago?

Gee honey, I don’t know where that video of Carrie Prejean came from.

6:24 p.m. Two juveniles fought at a local church while waiting for their youth group to begin.
Um, yeah, dudes, your like in church and stuff, shouldn’t you be acting Christian like?
WAIT! People still use film?
10:25 p.m. A woman called, saying that she was lost in a field and didn’t know how she got there. She could not identify her location, but indicated that there was a fence nearby. The woman’s husband later located her and escorted her home.
Where is Mulder and Sculley when you need them?
2:23 p.m. A man was separated from his mother-in-law while hunting on Blankenship Road. The woman turned up while a deputy was speaking with the man.
Again sounds like UFO activity.

6:12 p.m. Someone on Many Lakes Drive reports that their 4-year-old has been seeing a man at his bedroom window at night. This claim is substantiated by footprints found in the dirt beneath the child’s window. Authorities will be following up.
Did he see a guy with a really big head and big eyes? NO? Then it was just Bigfoot.
8:00 p.m. A resident of Middle Road in Columbia Falls heard something hit his house. Though no damage was done, the reporting party suspects an act of criminal mischief.
Bigfoot or Aliens? You decide.
Joe Friday Quote of the Week:
"It's awkward having a policeman around the house. Friends drop in, a man with a badge answers the door, the temperature drops 20 degrees.
Now be careful out there...you never know where Bigfoot may be lurking.
