On warm sunny days the interior of your parked car or truck is too hot for kids and pets. If you need to leave your vehicle parked in the sun, make arrangements for your children or animals to stay at home or in an alternative place that is cool.
The Chewelah PD handled 47 calls last week. Twenty of the calls were related to traffic stops, a collision, and calls related to traffic complaints.
Your physics teacher would be proud of you if you remembered that Mass X Velocity = Momentum. In other words, vehicles are heavy and when they are moving they can cause a lot of damage so it’s important that traffic moves as safely as possible. That’s one of the reasons why officers, deputies, and troopers stop so many cars. In other calls, an officer investigated a suspicious vehicle at a church; a citizen requested a welfare check on a neighbor; a dog complaint; a welfare check that ended up being a domestic argument; and an officer was flagged down by a motorist who reported an erratic driver. A report of a stolen vehicle; an unwanted person complaint; an officer provided an assist to the S.O.; and an officer investigated a report of a juvenile runaway. A citizen reported a downed tree along a roadway; an unwanted person report; and an officer provided a civil standby that was ordered by the court. Another welfare check request; another disturbance call; an officer responded to a domestic disturbance outside of town; and an officer searched for a warrant suspect after receiving a tip. Officers did foot patrols to check on the security of businesses; an officer responded to a vehicle fire just north of town; an incomplete 911 call; a report of a dead deer in an alley; a hit & run collision was investigated; and a juvenile contacted family via Facebook after getting lost while picking berries. An officer contacted two suspicious people at the park at around 0400 hrs; a residential alarm; a dog was taken to impound; an officer recovered a stolen lawn mower; a citizen assist; and a man was booked into jail on charges related to domestic violence.
