Here is Tuesday's recap of law enforcement activity around the county. All persons arrested or cited are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law: *Lander Police Department* *Arrests/Citations:* None. *Calls*: At 9:15 a.m., police were called to the 100 block of East Main to assist a person who accidentally locked herself out of her vehicle with two young children still inside. A store employee ultimately helped get the vehicle unlocked. At 3:16 p.m. on Monday, an attempted shoplifting at Mr. D's was thwarted. An unknown woman allegedly tried to leave the store with $108 in meat, but left the items behind after being confronted by staff. At 3:45 p.m., a caller at a home on Amoretti reported finding a gun in their mailbox. The gun was determined to be air soft gun owned by the property owner's child. At 5:24 a.m. on Tuesday, a caller on South Fourth Street reported that they saw a silver Jeep pull up in front of a residence, heard a woman scream and then the vehicle left. Officers were unable to locate the vehicle. *Fremont County Sheriff's Office* *Arrests:* None. The Fremont County Detention Center is currently responsible for 164 inmates. Of these, 140 are being held in the detention center, 13 are in substance abuse treatment programs, two are on home detention, and nine are being housed out of the facility. *Calls:* At 10:55 a.m., a caller off Squaw Creek Road outside of Lander reported three goats of unknown origin in their yard. At 2:36 p.m., a caller on Roosevelt Street in Dubois reported an antenna stolen off a camper. Deputies and Lander Police officers assisted the BIA in trying to locate a woman who fled SageWest Lander while she was in the BIA's custody. The woman was not located. *Riverton Police Department * *Arrests/Citations:* *Isaac Bell,* 42, Riverton, Shoplifting and on a Johnson County warrant; *A 40-year-old female,* Riverton, was cited for Shoplifting. The pair left Safeway with $74.83 in groceries. An officer was nearby and stopped the vehicle. The groceries were recovered. The female was only cited because she had small children at home, a police report indicated. *Calls* *There were 21 calls for service* Police were called to the area of North Broadway and Webbwood Road where a brindle colored Pit Bull was running at large. Officers were unable to catch the dog. An ongoing dispute between neighbors in the 600 block of North 2nd West was again mediated by an officer. This time the dispute was over kids being noisy. Police were called to a civil dispute between two parties at odds over some property. Advice was given how to solve the problem legally. A juvenile reported as a runaway from Grandma's house was found at an Auntie's house. A woman called police at 8:16 p.m. to report that a man was scaling a fence between her property and some trailer homes in the 400 block of North 7th East. When challenged the man said he was a roofer inspecting a roof. He did not have any tools or any evidence of being a roofer, especially that late in the evening. When police were called, the man disappeared. Two males and one female were transported to the Center of Hope on Monday for being intoxicated. *Fremont County Ambulance* EMS crews responded to 16 calls for service on Monday. *Fire Departments* Fort Washakie Firefighters were the only ones to receive a call Monday, and it was for a wreck. *Fremont County Coroner* The death of a 58-year-old Ethete woman who was found dead on December 12th has been ruled accidental. Fremont County Coroner Mark Stratmoen released a verdict and case docket today in the death of Donna Antelope, 58. The cause of death was listed as Ethanol and Isopropanol toxicity. Isopropanol is commonly found in such products as hand sanitizers and cleaning agents, Stratmoen said. The relevant toxicology revealed Antelope's blood alcohol level to be 0.251 percent and that 8.6 mg/dl of Isopropanol were in her system. The combination was fatal. The coroner also reported the death of Randell Wilson Jr., 45, of Fort Washakie on December 12th was accidental. Cause of death was "cardiopulmonary arrest due to severe aspiration and ETOH toxicity." Wilson's blood alcohol level was 0.389. The legal limit is 0.08 percent. Stratmoen said Wilson died at the SageWest Lander Hospital. #county10 #news
