Dispatch: Arrests; Babysitters had drinking party; Kids locked out of their house; Drunk Driver caught

Here is Thursday's recap of law enforcement activity around the county. All persons arrested or cited are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law: *Riverton Police Department* *Arrests/Citations* *Clifton Littlethunder*, 19, Riverton, Failure to Appear. Police were called to the 900 block of Forest Drive by a parent who had left his kids in the care of some friends, but when he returned the group was intoxicated. Littlethunder was found to have an outstanding warrant and was arrested. The others were removed from the apartment. The kids were fine. *Calls:* *There were 27 calls for service on Wednesday* A caller reported a rifle missing from his residence but said it was unknown when it disappeared. He reported last seeing the firearm sometime last year. The incident is under investigation. A woman drove to the police department and reported that she thought someone was following her from the Beaver Creek Housing Area. It was a misunderstanding, there was no one after her. The adult children of a 56-year-old Riverton woman called police to report that their mother was missing, that her cell phone was left at her home and that her business had been closed for several days. The woman returned home later that afternoon and, according to a police report, she said she just needed a “time out” and some alone time. A custody dispute resulted in a call to police, who advised that because there was no court documentation of who should have the children, they could not do anything. An officer recommended going to court and working it out there. An individual appeared at the emergency room with a dog bite that apparently occurred on Sunday. There was no other information available. *Lander Police Department* *Arrests/Citations* There were no arrests reported *Calls* *There were 14 calls for service on Wednesday* A violation of the city's code dealing with snow removal was pointed out to a resident on Grand View Drive. A fire call turned out to be hot coals from a material pile behind a boat at 700 North 2nd and Market streets. The fire department handled the call. A bad check written to Fremont Motors was reported. Police made a report. A local resident's Social Security Card was reported compromised. A written report was requested by the Internal Revenue Service. Police received a call that children had been locked out of their home. When police made contact with the kid's mother, she had been sleeping and had apparently forgotten that there was an "early out" school day. A case of obstruction of justice is under investigation. A femal called police to report that she needed help replacing the batteries in her smoke alarm. An officer assisted the woman. *Fremont County Sheriff's Office* *Arrests/Citations* *Robert Durgin,* 60, Riverton, Driving While Under the Influence and Open Container. He was arrested after his pickup slid off of the road at the 1838 Rendezvous site. *Calls* *There were 30 calls for service on Wednesday* A reported case of animal abuse on David's Way outside of Riverton is under investigation. Another third party report of animal abuse, that of a dog and newborn puppies left outside turned out to be unfounded. *Fremont County Emergency Medical Service* There were 14 calls for an ambulance on Wednesday *Fremont County Fire Departments* There were two fire calls in the Lander area, one for a fire alarm on Sinks Canyon Road and another for hot coals on North 2nd Street. *Fremont County Coroner* Coroner Mark Stratmoen said an autopsy is planned for a 56-year-old Riverton woman who was found dead at her home on Wednesday. Stratmoen said there was nothing outwardly suspicious about the death, except for her young age and no medical history. [image: Inline image 1] #county10 #news
