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 department’s activity. All persons are innocent until proven guilty.

Feb. 2

• At 3:57 p.m. a page alerted the department a woman had fallen in the snow and broken her leg.

Feb. 4

• At 3:47 p.m. a mother called to see if her daughter was still in jail. Dispatch said her daughter had finished out her local charges, and was waiting to be transported to Cascade County. The mother explained she was actually looking for her truck, which she had been told her daughter had stolen. Dispatch checked with deputies, who believed the truck was still parked where the daughter had been arrested.

• At 8:09 p.m. Central Montana Dispatch relayed a phone call about a traffic complaint. A woman stated an SUV had pulled out in front of her, stopping in the middle of the road. She went around the vehicle and parked in front of her destination. The other driver rolled down their window, and the caller recognized them. The driver then watched the woman and her passenger as they went into a house, and peeled out when they came back out.

Feb. 5

• At 12:25 a.m. the Lewistown Police Department asked for help getting a man a ride. The car he was riding in was now stuck in a berm. Deputies took the man to a motel, and then returned to the scene to help with a second’s man DUI processing. At 1:03 a.m. the second man was arrested by a police officer for a DUI and driving without headlights on. A different police officer issued him citations for disorderly conduct, leaving the scene of an accident, and failure to give notice of an accident. A Fergus County Deputy then served him a Cascade County parole warrant for violating his parole. He was booked into jail.

• At 8:48 a.m. a woman asked the department to check on a trailer on her property. She stated it belonged to a couple who supposedly left the area. She suspected several animals were in the trailer, and a deputy was later told four dogs, chickens, goats and two hedgehogs were inside. A man claimed the report was wrong, and there were no animals: He was the one living there.

• At 2:41 p.m. a deputy arrested a woman for disorderly conduct and booked her into the Fergus County Detention Center.

• At 3 p.m. a deputy went into the lobby to deal with a woman screaming at the Justice Court clerks. The deputy tried to speak with her, but she continued yelling. The woman was then arrested and escorted to jail.

• At 6:51 p.m. a woman reported suspicious circumstances. She said someone pounded on her door around 6 p.m., and, as she is handicapped, she yelled she would be just a minute. When she reached the door, no one was there. The same thing happened 30 minutes later. The woman added this was odd because everyone knew she was handicapped and slow to open the door. A deputy responded.

• At 11:26 p.m. the Musselshell County undersheriff arrested a person on a warrant issued for two counts of criminal possession of dangerous drugs, two counts of drug paraphernalia, driving while suspended and speeding.

Feb. 6

• At 9:11 a.m. a man stopped by the sheriff’s department to report fraudulent mail. He had received papers from “an inner-circle member of the secret society.” A deputy took the papers, and gave the man the number for the Federal Trade Commission.

• At 3:18 p.m. a man came to the sheriff’s department lobby regarding a possible shootout that “could have happened today but didn’t.”

• At 4:06 p.m. a man called to file a complaint against his neighbor. He stated he had been plowing snow when the neighbor came out, started a tractor and parked it in front of him. The caller explained he had an easement, and this was an ongoing issue.
