Police Blotter: Troubled Hound and Missing Carnie

By Christie Burns

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

3:43 p.m. A bad dog on School Addition Road ravaged some chickens.

3:50 p.m. Montana Highway Patrol officers chased down a man who bailed out of a stolen truck. The man escaped on foot but the truck, which was stolen only hours before, was recovered and the owners contacted.

4 p.m. A woman on Grande Vista requested an animal warden assist her in taking her 80-pound “mentally challenged hound” to the animal shelter.

4:24 p.m. Deputies responded when an undisciplined young man called in from Evergreen requesting deputies give him a ride to Arizona. Deputies declined the taxi service but did council the parents of the boy.

4:27 p.m. A woman called from her place of work to report that she thinks people have been getting into her home and moving things around while she is at work. Deputies checked her residence out and said it looked fine.

5:49 p.m. A Kalispell man reported that his friend, who is working on a carnival in Arizona, calls him every day. However, the carnie hasn’t called in the past few days and he’s worried.

5:51 p.m. A case of Pepsi and a bicycle were stolen out of the back of a truck in Evergreen.

8:08 p.m. While a man who just bought a truck was rifling through his glove box, he found a bag filled with white stuff. He turned the bag in assuming it was drugs. It was not drugs, just white stuff.

9:36 p.m. A sleepy transient was kicked out of the Evergreen laundry room where he was napping.

9:58 p.m. A young man grabbed two bags of jerky from a U.S. Highway 35 gas station and ran.

10:44 p.m. A woman called in to report that her boyfriend had had a heart attack recently and now he won’t answer his phone. Deputies checked on the man and learned he was sleeping.

12:09 a.m. A man who was lying face down on the train tracks at the Whitefish Train Depot was taken to North Valley Hospital.

The departments responded to 177 calls for service
