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.

Nov. 1
• At 3:26 p.m. Central Montana Dispatch relayed a call about a possible rollover involving one of the Cheadle Fire Department’s trucks. The sheriff’s department failed to reach the fire department in person, but was able to leave a message on their phone. At 5:19 p.m. someone returned the message, reporting everything was okay. The caller said the vehicle had been parked too close to an edge and tipped over.

Nov. 3
• At 7:42 a.m. a caller reported a bear problem. He said three bears, possibly a sow and two cubs, had been in his yard earlier in the morning. The night before, his birdseed feeder had been knocked over. The caller informed dispatch a game warden had helped him with the same problem last year.

Nov. 4
• At 7 a.m. a man called in concerned about a loud noise. He heard a boom come from the direction of Casino Creek Concrete while walking his dog early that morning, and thought it sounded more like an explosion than a gunshot. At 7:50 a.m. a deputy drove out to the scene, and he advised dispatch he found the source of the sound: a firecracker.
• At 9:12 p.m. Central Montana Dispatch informed the sheriff’s department that Lewistown police officers were doing breathalyzer tests on several kids. A deputy responded.
