Sheriff's Log


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.

Oct. 25
• At 4:17 p.m. a caller reported being chased into her house by a neighbor’s dogs. The woman was unsure of the owner’s house number or name, but said other people were also having problems with the animals. She described the dogs as aggressive and violent.
A deputy headed to the scene, telling dispatch he was already familiar with the pet owner’s house. Meanwhile, the woman left to run an errand, and called the sheriff’s office back when she discovered the dogs had returned. The woman told the dispatcher she was afraid to get out of her car. The deputy arrived, and then shortly left to find the owner. The deputy issued the dog owner two tickets.
Oct. 26
• At 6:30 p.m. a woman caller stated the dogs from the previous day had returned and once again cornered her. A deputy arrived, made sure the caller was okay and headed to the owner’s house.

Oct. 27
• At 7:23 a.m. a seasonal resident reported a reoccurring suspicious incident. Every October, when he and his family left for their home out east, a black Suburban appeared several days after the family’s departure. The neighbors noticed this for several years, and wrote down the vehicle’s license plate number the last time it happened. After listening to his story, a deputy ran the plate number and mentioned the owner’s name to the caller. The caller did not recognize it, and was advised to have his neighbor call the next time the vehicle showed up without permission.
• At 1:58 p.m. a man walked into the office requesting to speak to a detective about a theft. After finding out the sheriff’s office only had deputies, and stating that one of them would have to do, he told a deputy his truck had been broken into and tools were stolen.
