Hoisted from the Police Reports page of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle come the best of the Bozeman police reports from the last week along with some items from the Sheriff’s Office.
Well, it’s warming up around here – highs near 50 degrees for a couple weeks now – so everyone seems to be getting a touch of spring fever while trying to determine how many more days of skiing they’re going to try and get in. The wildlife and livestock also seem to be getting ready for warmer weather and alcohol related arrests are on the rise, but, for the first time in memory there were no inadvertent 911 calls or “flipping off” incidents.
- A caller reported a mountain lion was in the area of Warbler Way over the weekend but was not there at the time of the call.
- A telemarketer with a Bozeman phone number called a man several times to tell him he had won a cruise, the man told police. When he asked to speak to a supervisor, the telemarketer cursed at him. An officer determined that the number had been disconnected.
- Police could not find a man claiming that aliens were intercepting his brain signals and requesting help from the FBI.
- Several sheep were on the side of Interstate 90 and were about to go onto the road around 1:15 p.m.
- Officers warned a man about the marijuana smoke coming from his apartment after a neighbor called to complain.
- Someone called to report a suspicious carcass on the side of the road. Deputies identified it as a discarded wild animal carcass. The county roads department was notified.
- Two men were stopped after one was seen lying on the ground in the 700 block of West Babcock Street. The men were drunk and “joking around with one another.” They were walking home and did not need further assistance.
- A man called to report that his wallet, which contained $1,500 in cash, a check, various credit cards, his driver’s license and his medical marijuana card, had been stolen Thursday night at a bar. The man called later and said “a lady” returned his wallet with everything in it.
- A caller wanted to know if the police dealt with pigeons. They don’t.
- Police talked to a woman who was sitting on the sidewalk with the contents of her purse strewn about. She was intoxicated and refused assistance.
- A woman said she went to work and her husband went skiing after they had a “heated conversation.” A deputy talked to her about “appropriate and mature methods of dealing with heated conversations.”
- The parents of a 33-year-old man said their son was disorderly, intoxicated, and refused to leave the house. Deputies convinced him to leave.
- An officer spoke with a juvenile “about his behavior.”
- A caller said he found a small amount of marijuana on his desk at work.
- Three suspicious people were knocking on doors on Sky Crest Drive around 12:30 p.m. “asking for feedback on product samples.” They had a small package of facial tissues.
- A man who was “out for a walk” on Interstate 90 around 9:30 p.m. said he “didn’t want to waste the taxpayers’ money” when a deputy stopped to check on him.
- An officer warned an intoxicated bicyclist not to wander into the street around 2 a.m.
- An officer stopped what he thought were three juveniles on Main Street around 1:30 p.m. but one of them turned out to be the mom, “just very young looking.”
