As the officer drove by, Stiffarm looked at the officer and yelled, “What?!” The officer stopped and asked if the man needed something. As it turned out, Stiffarm had an outstanding warrant and he was taken into custody.


At 8:53 a.m. Tuesday a blue van broke down at North Broadway and East Bell, obstructing traffic there. Police assisted having the vehicle moved.

Reports of three more vehicles sideswiped by an 18-year-old intellectually disabled teen came in on Tuesday. The young man took a family SUV for a joy ride earlier this week and sideswiped a number of other vehicles before he eventually was stopped at the construction site on South Federal. So far a total of six people have filed complaints with the city that their vehicles were struck.

At 12:10 p.m. a woman who was having difficulty getting her credit or debit card read at the pump and inside the Loaf ‘N Jug store after pumping $43.60 of gas, promised to return to the store and pay for the fuel. When some time had passed and the woman had not returned, police were called who contacted the motorist who did return and pay the bill.

At 1:46 p.m. a man driving a pickup truck through the South Federal construction zone pulled over to talk to a buddy working there. His truck, however, was blocking traffic that began to stack up behind him. He attempted to get out of the way of traffic, but hooked bumpers with a semi-truck. There was no damage and traffic began flowing more freely again.

At 2:06 police received a call from the 200 block of Bell Avenue when someone was spotted throwing their garbage bags into a dumpster not belonging to them. The alert resident got a license plate number and the police are following up with the vehicle’s registered owner about the littering.

At 3:24 p.m. a call was received concerning a dog that might’ve been left alone inside the house of a man who was recently incarcerated in the county detention center. A welfare check was made on the dog and police discovered the jailed man’s girlfriend was staying at his home and caring for the dog.

A male subject called at 3:43 p.m. to alert police that a Sig Sauer 522 rifle was missing from his father’s truck that he had been using to drive back and forth to Laramie over the past couple of weeks. The rifle was noticed missing, but the caller was unsure when it went missing, and didn’t know if it happened in Laramie or in Riverton. Police took a report. A GPS unit and other handguns in the truck were not taken. Value of the missing rifle was listed at $587.

At 4:11 p.m. police received a call from a 9-year-old boy who complained that a neighbor had threatened to strangle him. Upon investigating, officers learned that the 57-year-old female suspect in the 800 block of North 12th East had some playground equipment in her yard that she allowed the young one to come over and use as long as he was not destructive. However on Tuesday, the woman was working in the yard and told the boy that today was not a good day to play in the yard. The child became upset and called police, apparently in retaliation. The  woman never threatened the boy, who has now apparently lost his ability to play in the neighbors yard. No police action was taken.

At 11:50 p.m. a Terrier dog showed up in a garage in the 1500 block of Mary Anne Drive. Officers took the friendly pooch to the PAWS for Life Animal Shelter.
