He just wanted to pass along that info to the police for documentation. *Thursday, March 31st* A trailer reportedly stolen in North Dakota was found in Thermopolis in the 1300 block of Canyon Hills. A Thermopolis resident who received a flyer in the mail called the number, but disconnected the call when the other party started asking for personal information, including his Social Security Number.

A report of an intoxicated driver turned out to be unfounded. An officer who followed the suspect vehicle said there was no indication of impaired driving. A resident received a call saying they had won a $1-million lottery but they needed to send $400 to release the funds. The resident did not fall for the scam and notified police instead. A friend who left Riverton didn’t arrive in Thermopolis as quickly as the caller thought he should and notified police. The man arrived safely. Police provided a civil standby in the 300 block of Clark for a couple who were breaking up and separating belongings. *Sunday, April 3* A couple in a local hotel on East Park were being loud and disturbing other guests at 2:11 a.m. Police asked the couple to quiet down, and they did. A woman visiting Thermopolis said she had lost her bank card while here, and reported it to the TPD. She was advised to contact her bank and cancel the card. Just before 12:30, a car on Broadway and Sixth rolled into a vehicle that was stopped at a traffic signal. There was no damage. A man called police to report that he had left his golf clubs in an apartment that he had moved out of, and when he returned to fetch them, they were gone. A short time later the dispatch center received another call complaining he was being harassed over the golf clubs. It is a civil matter between former roommates. A couple in a motel were asked to leave, but refused. When police arrived, they departed. A minor fire in the 400 block of Springview was called in. The reporting party said the fire had already been extinguished, but wanted to report the incident. The owner of two dogs who had escaped their yard and that were running at large was contacted and warned to keep the pets on his own property. The incident was reported in the 100 block of South Highway 120. Police were called when a resident had not been answering his phone and a welfare check was requested. The man was in the shower and that’s why he didn’t answer the call. #springcity #news
