Robert Billhart, 25, Riverton, Possession of Marijuana and two (2) City of Riverton warrants. An officer was on patrol just after 8 p.m. in the 500 block of North Broadway when the officer recognized a man riding on a bicycle in the area. The officer was familiar with the man, Billhart, due to previous police contact. When she checked for warrants, it was discovered he had two FTA warrants, so she pulled him over. Billhart was near his home, so the officer allowed him to go home, secure his bicycle and, according to a police report, take some personal items he had with him into his house. After Billhar was taken to the RPD before being transferred to the Fremont County Detention Center, he was patted down. The officer found the end portions of several marijuana roaches in his front right pocket.

Shakespeare was apparently having a verbal argument with his mother who wanted him out of her car.


Police were notified at 8:29 a.m. that someone had placed orange cones across Peak Street, indicating the street was closed. Officers found the cones and several children riding their bicycles on the street behind the cones. Apparently the father of the kids placed the cones out there so the kids could ride their bicycles without traffic. He was told he cannot block off a street like that and the father picked up and removed the cones. No action was taking.

That pesky squirrel. Not sure if it’s the same squirrel, but one was caught, again, in a trap in the 800 block of Riverview Road and released near the Wind River.

Police are awaiting additional documentation from a financial institution in a reported theft of $400 from a woman’s account via a debit card. A police report said a friend of the woman is suspected of the action, as the money allegedly was deposited in his account. The fraud remains under investigation.

A case of animal abuse was reported at 1:35 p.m. in the 900 block of North Broadway where a dog was heard to be whiling and yelping. By the time an officer arrived, all was well. The dog apparently was stuck in a fence around the yard, but freed itself. The dogs there were checked and all were found to be uninjured.

Someone apparently tried to start a fire inside the United Methodist Church’s children’s playhouse, which is located on the church grounds. A number of burned twigs were found inside the playhouse, but there was no damage reported.

A 5-year-old girl riding her bicycle in the in the 500 block of North 16th East drew the attention of a resident there as the girl was riding around for an extended period of time. When the reporting party’s children came out to play and talked with the girl, they were told she could not remember where she lived. But she knew her parents name. Mom was called and she came and brought her daughter home. Alls well that ends well.
