8:04 a.m. Someone on First Avenue East caught a “pit bull-looking” animal and contained it in their backyard.

10:14 a.m. A man driving down Highway 82 near Bigfork called 911 after a driver of a little red pickup swerved in front of him and cut him off.

10:45 a.m. Someone reported that a truck loaded down with bags was swerving in and out of oncoming traffic on Farm to Market Road.

10:48 a.m. A woman on Woodland Drive reported that her neighbor owns five dogs.

12:40 p.m. A Somers man suspects that the washer and dryer he bought from a man on Craigslist are either stolen or somehow connected to criminal activity. He came to this conclusion after coming across information on mugshots.com where he discovered the seller’s picture and rap sheet.

12:58 p.m. A Bigfork resident reported that someone stole his bicycle and left another in its place. He called back later to say that his nephew had borrowed it.

2:29 p.m. A man looked on and took notes as a volatile young man attempted to smash his windshield and steal his computer. He was later tracked down and arrested.

6:20 p.m. Someone witnessed the erratic driver of a light blue Chrysler speed though an Evergreen parking lot at excessive speeds.

7:49 p.m. A man who was signaled by a deputy to pull over for speeding turned into a residential area and parked in someone’s driveway. He explained to the deputy that he worked at the residence. However, during the conversation the homeowner walked out and said he didn’t know the man. He then confessed that he was driving without insurance and hoped that, in some way, this story might work out for him.
