(By Chewelah Chief of Police Mark Burrows)
From July 2 through July 15 the Chewelah PD handled approximately 120 calls. That’s a lot of info to try and fit into an article so we’ll cruise over a few of the details. Fifty of the calls were traffic stops, traffic situations, and a few fender benders. Officers worked with the Sheriff’s Office, WSP, DOC, helped the FD on a call, ate a few fire burgers, and checked on a few people to make sure they were okay. The Canine team located drugs on a couple calls, alarms, dog complaints, drugs complaints and arrests; thefts; citizen disputes; warrant arrests; a warrant arrest or three; and we handled a few dispute complaints. Disturbances, a DV, paper services, warrant arrests, and a protection order violation. Officers dealt with a few intoxicated people over the weekend, recovered a stolen 4-wheeler; and enjoyed visiting with plenty of people who were in town for Chataqua. We appreciate the extra help from WSP and the Sheriff’s Office. We also thank you for your kind words and support.
