At 11:17 a.m. on Tuesday, a caller from Dubois reported harassment by an ex-roommate. The woman said her old roommate put dog poop on the windshield of her car.
A woman in Riverton called deputies at 12:35 p.m. yesterday to report a Dubois woman who received nail service but refused to pay.
At 4:31 p.m. on Tuesday, deputies received a call from a woman whose daughter told her she was living in a trailer court with no heat, lights running water and was afraid of freezing to death. The call is under investigation.
Lander Police Department
Lander Police Sgt. Shawn McRae said he wanted to remind residents to make sure they report criminal or suspicious activity in a timely manner. He said the department received two calls on Tuesday that were reporting information too late for any police action to be taken.
At 12:19 p.m. on Tuesday, police were called to the 200 block of North Third Street for a bike that was stolen about three days ago. At 1:43 p.m. a caller at Pushroot Court called police to report hearing suspicious sounds in the alley that the caller heard at 2:30 a.m. that morning. The caller felt threatened.
McRae said LPD is a 24-hour operation for a reason, and that is to respond to calls quickly. Getting the information long after it happens often prevents them from finding any validation to suspicious activity.
At 4:45 p.m., police were called by a person on the 1000 block of North Second Street for a report of an individual who believed he was being frauded via email in an attempt to purchase a vehicle.
At 9:38 p.m., a woman reported a truck with a camper followed her. She said the driver had duct tape all over his face. Police were unable to locate the suspicious vehicle and information provided did not match registration records.
Riverton Police Department
John Antelope, 45, Riverton, Failure to Appear warrants (2)
Shawnice CrazyThunder, 19, Ethete, Minor In Possession of Alcohol (.29 percent BAC) and Disturbing the Peace
Edward Brown III, 29, Riverton, Resisting Arrest and Breach of Peace
Vearle Wilson, 35, St. Stephens, Contempt of Court warrant
Riverton Police remind city residents not to park their vehicles and leave them unattended in alleys. One such vehicle parked in the alley in the 300 block of East Madison was towed because it was blocking traffic. The call came in at 1:33 a.m. Tuesday. Police also suggest motorists parking in parking lots leave enough space for the neighboring vehicle’s driver to enter and exit. The RPD took one call Tuesday where a white flatbed Dodge Ram truck pulled in so close to another vehicle that the driver could not get back into her vehicle. The offending truck was moved.
The School Resource Officer at Riverton High School reported a marijuana possession incident Tuesday at 1:56 p.m. No other details were available except that the matter is under investigation.
Police are reviewing video from a liquor store in the 700 block of North Federal today to identify a shoplifter. The store said they had video of someone stealing from the store and needed help in making an identification.
Police did not become involved in a civil issue reported by Bombers Sports Bar at 7:38 p.m. Tuesday. Apparently the business had retained the identification of a patron who had an unpaid bar bill.
A citation will be served on a female subject who scanned a tee-shirt at Walmart but took a coat. When the subject was confronted by store personnel, she left the items and drove away in a blue Chevrolet pickup.
Four individuals were transported by police to the Fremont County Alcohol Crisis Center.
