Not quite a vacation day for the blotter, but pretty darn close. We handled 23 calls for service yesterday, with no real crime reports to be written. There were still traffic stops to be made, a few noise disturbances to resolve, and some miscellaneous collisions and wildlife incidents to handle. The below Found Property report is all we have for you today.
20011597: On January 23, 2020, at about 12:00 noon, Community Service Officer (CSO) Brimeyer responded to a report of Found Property. Some very nice person found some money and turned it into the police department for safe keeping. CSO Brimeyer has been holding onto it for a while now, but no one has claimed it. Before you start burning up the phone lines to claim it, you’re going to have to tell us where it was lost, how much it is, and when you lost it. What happens if this money goes unclaimed? Wyoming state law dictates how the police department is supposed to handle found property of any value. Generally, we are required to hold onto it for 30 days and make attempts to contact the owner, if known. If the property is valued under $50, we can dispose of it however is appropriate. If the property is valued over that, we have to go through a process of advertising and going before the judge before it can be appropriately disposed of. The bike auction we do in the spring is a good example of that.
Happy Friday, Jackson! The weekend is here. Please don’t become a blotter item.
