Police Blotter: Creepy Alarm, Missing Dog

By Christie Burns

The Kalispell Police and Flathead County Sheriff’s reports for Sunday included the following:

12:38 a.m. A woman who was house sitting on Blue Grouse Drive called in because she heard a dog barking in an “unusual tone” and the radio alarm in the house had gone off all by itself. She requested that deputies come out to make sure the garage was locked. They did just that and everything was fine.

1:09 a.m. Deputies responded when a woman called in and complained about a drunken male who had come over and pushed her. They were separated for the night.

8:52 a.m. A vehicle on Klondyke Loop was broken into. Items including a stereo and CDs were taken.

10:27 a.m. A stray dog was captured and taken to the shelter.

12:36 p.m. Someone in Columbia Falls called in to report a woman who owns 30 starving horses, two of which are dead. An animal warden went to check on the situation and found that the woman was attempting to revive the horses, which she had picked up from the reservation. Two of them had died but she had properly disposed of them a while back. They all had plenty of food and water.

1:11 p.m. A resident on Airport Road called in because there were two homicidal dogs in his garage trying to kill his rabbits. The dogs ran off. The animal warden followed them to their home, where he cited the owners for letting their dogs astray.

4:59 p.m. A Columbia Falls resident called in to ask if she could get a deputy to walk with her over to her neighbor’s house to see if they had stolen her dog.

6:09 p.m. A person called in to report that a snowplow had bent a road and a stop sign.

6:44 p.m. A 17-year-old boy was arrested and taken to juvenile detention after throwing a violent fit.

The departments responded to 107 calls for service.
