Culled 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.
Multiple reports of hissing bears highlight this week’s reports along with the usual alcohol related entries and flipping off incidents. As the ursines go on their fall eating binge in advance of a long winter sleep, look for bear sightings to rise sharply since, as the eating accelerates, they’ll be tooling around Main Street in about a month looking for food, hopefully during the wee hours on the weekend to help settle the drunken late-night crowd. By the way, does anyone know what “huffing” cans of “spray duster” means?
- A person on Valley Center Road reported a wrench stolen sometime in the past year.
- A man in a blue Town and Country minivan drove around Summer Ridge Road at 2:40 p.m. handing out tissues.
- A South 16th Avenue man wanted to retrieve his gun that was confiscated by an officer. He couldn’t remember which officer took it or why.
- A man arrested on East Main Street for disorderly conduct and assault was also charged with criminal mischief after spitting and urinating on the floors and walls of the jail.
- An aggressive black bear was hissing and snapping at a man along Little Coyote Road. The bear wouldn’t let him pass and he had to drive across the yard to get in his house.
- A caller wanted to talk with an officer to find out whether it’s illegal to lie to someone about having Hepatitis C before having intercourse with them.
