FLATHEAD COUNTY: THE LAST FRONTIER

8:33 p.m. A Whitefish resident called to report that while he was at work, his landlord fixed his door that day and apparently stole some change in the process. But the bigger problem was that the bathroom door inside the apartment was shut and locked. The caller said he was concerned that someone was in the bathroom, even though he couldn’t hear anyone in there. Despite the lack of evidence, the caller was ready to “take them down” utilizing a can of pepper spray and a saw. The caller was advised to leave the house and let police take care of the issue. The man then waited outside, still wielding the pepper spray and saw, for police who checked the apartment and found no one inside.

Was he planning to pepper spray the enemy, and than saw him in half?

Why take them down with pepper spray and a saw when he could have simply broke their jaw?

I hope the pepper spray and saw were properly put back in their safety cases.

Also interesting:

10:46 a.m. A baby called 911 on Echo Creek Road in Bigfork. The baby didn’t have much to say other than “baby talk.”

Just like 90% of Flathead people calling police, no real emergency.

7:02 p.m. A Kalispell resident called police after a bunch of people showed up in trucks and started pounding on the door. The people yelled that “they weren’t going to knock next time.” The resident had no clue who the people were or what they wanted. The caller was understandably concerned about the situation.

They probably just wanted to use the bathroom and got the wrong address. (They wanted the house with the locked bathroom door, and were tired of waiting?)

Bandsaw, sabre saw, or chainsaw? Details matter.
