Here is Tuesday's recap of law enforcement activity from around the county. All persons arrested or cited are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. *Lander Police Department* *Arrests/Citations:* *Wade Wheeler*, 35, Lander, FCSO Warrant for Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Assault and Domestic Abuse. Wheeler, a suspect in the alleged mid-December home invasion in Lander, had been sought for some time for his connection to the crime that left two local residents with broken bones. Wheeler was found on Monday after police were called to a home on the 300 block of Washington Street where a woman said Wheeler choked her. After a brief search of the area, he was located. *Calls:* At 1:42 p.m., a caller in Lander reported that a subject stole a camera from her parents and then pawned it. The report is under investigation. At 2:35 p.m., a caller near Mr. D's reported a two-vehicle crash. There were no injuries or citations. *Fremont County Sheriff's Office* *Arrests:* *Joseph Withrow*, 35, Lander, Bond Revocation. *Calls:* At 10:37 a.m., a caller on Honor Farm Road complained that trucks were traveling too fast.

The marker ink was wiped off, there was no damage. A woman came to the police department to complain that she had received seven telephone calls from a business calling itself “Forward Movement Recovery.” The callers, using different telephone numbers, told the woman that she did not pay a loan from 2006 and they demanded repayment. It was a scam. A woman called police to report that she had found “inappropriate messages” on her daughter’s computer from a male she believed to be “older.” The complaint is being investigated. A 60-year-old man was taken to the emergency room complaining of arm and neck pain following a crash at East Sunset and Elk Drive. The man’s black 1998 Ford SUV hit a patch of ice and collided with a black Ford Truck.

There were no injuries. An out-of-state resident called police to report that he had received a $25,000 bill from SageWest Health Care. He said he has never been to Riverton and had never been treated at the hospital here. Police are investigating. A girl who failed to get off the school bus was, for a short time, reported as missing. The girl however had not left school and was safe in the building. A man found intoxicated, hypothermic and passed out on the bike path through town was discovered and transported to the emergency room for treatment. Riverton Police Captain Eric Murphy said officers pay close attention to the bike path and parks during cold weather to help keep people from freezing to death. A man in an upstairs apartment in the College Hill Apartments reported it sounded like a fight below him with yelling and other noises. Police contacted the apartment dwellers who were “horsing around and being loud.” There was no fight. They agreed to quiet down.
