The following report is taken from information provided by the Fergus County Sheriff’s Department and does not represent the total scope of the sheriff’s department’s activity. All persons are innocent until proven guilty.

Sept. 2
• At 7:47 a.m. a man reported his 29-foot camper went missing overnight. A deputy responded, and the caller said he had already confirmed the bank had not repossessed the vehicle. The deputy went on to call towing companies, finding none had moved the camper. At 10:20 a.m., an officer reported the trailer might have been found in Billings. A woman called in to give a statement about the incident at 2 p.m. She and her husband had seen the theft, but initially thought it was just a repossession.
• At 10:56 a.m. a caller requested the removal of a woman threatening to stab him, telling dispatch he had already disarmed her. The sheriff and a deputy responded, and a woman was arrested for assault with a weapon. The deputy later told a judge the woman was probably under the influence of alcohol.

Sept. 7 
• At 10:05 a.m. a man stopped by the Fergus County Sheriff’s Office to report a possible case of littering and drunken driving. He stated he had been behind a car headed into Lewistown when the driver threw a Busch Light can from the vehicle. The man picked up the can, followed the offending car and watched the driver walk into an establishment. He then called the business to ask what the person was drinking, and he was told Busch Light. A deputy talked with the man, took the can as evidence and had him sign a statement. The deputy then visited the establishment and issued a citation for littering.

Sept. 9
• At 8:12 a.m. a caller reporter his wife had seen people rummaging through mailboxes the night before. She reported at least three people exited a small, dark-colored car, each with a flashlight. A deputy responded, and found a vehicle matching the wife’s description. Talking to the law enforcement officer, the man confirmed it was probably the car she spotted. He said it belonged to the new neighbor, who probably was just having a hard time finding their mailbox. The man asked the deputy not talk to them.
