10:27 a.m. A person called a business and threatened to blow it up.

10:38 a.m. Shots were fired at a coffee shop in Coram.

12:54 p.m. Two girls between the ages of 12 and 13 stole two cases of beer from a Budweiser truck in Martin City. During the escape one of the cases was dropped and one girl lost a shoe.

2:37 p.m. A red-haired older woman got out of a van and took a picture of a Kalispell home. The neighbor came out and confronted the woman. The woman smiled, took another picture, got back in the van and drove away.

2:48 p.m. Someone called in about barking dogs and a foul odor coming from the kennel on Haywire Gulch.
