While vacationing in Belle Fourche, two (old enough to know better) transients decided to use the railroad tracks as a place to guzzle beer. When officers confronted the two comrades, they must have thought they were going to get into trouble, one of them took off running. He did not make it too far; his feet were a little heavy from the booze. Officers kindly checked the drunks into detox.
Although Malcolm was not really bothered by his neighbor’s dogs barking all night, he was concerned the dog may be bothering the other people in the neighborhood. Murphy’s law, when the officers arrived they didn’t hear a sound until they put a notice on the door.
With the nice weather moving in, we have already been called to people peddling cleaning chemicals without permits. If someone comes to your door, you have every right to ask him or her for his or her permit. The reason for the permit is to keep our citizens safe. Background checks are ran on anyone who applies for a permit. We do not issue permits to those with violent criminal histories. So, take a moment to ask and call us if someone comes to the door without a permit.

As I have mentioned before the names used in the narrative portion are made up; they are names of my pets or my friend’s pets. The stories are all true calls, some with minor superfluities for entertainment value. Thanks for taking the time to read this column.
