Stillwater County 

Sheriff’s Office

Nov. 6

• At 8:51 a.m., a 911 caller reported a car on fire near mile marker 417 on Interstate 90. A Subaru was on fire and all occupants were out of the vehicle and safe. The fire was contained to the engine area and flames could be seen. Park City Fire was paged. At 9:12 a.m. a Montana Highway Patrol trooper advised there were several small propane tanks in the back of the vehicle that caused a few explosions. At 9:15 a.m., Park City fire advised the vehicle was completely engulfed in flames. At 9:43 a.m. the fire was extinguished and Hanser’s was responding with a tow truck.

Nov. 8

• At 12:26 a.m., a caller wanted to meet an officer at the Zip Trip in Park City. The man claimed he was in fear for his life and had information that was “wanted by the Sheriff’s office.” At 12:55 a.m. the caller contacted dispatch again and wanted to speak to a different deputy. At 12:56 a.m. a deputy wanted it noted in the report that the reporting party was complaining about the upkeep of Section 8 housing. The RP was informed he would need to take it up with Section 8. At 1:10 a.m. the RP called, yet again, to advise the Sheriff’s department they weren’t doing their jobs and he would be calling the US Marshall’s office because he “knows them very well.”

• At 6:19 p.m., a caller from Park City called to report an 80-year-old male was in an apartment for two hours with gas coming in, and it was now turned off. The caller stated the owner of the apartment was advised not to rent it because it was hazardous and he had to break down the door to get in. At 6:33 p.m. a deputy reported it to be a civil issue to take up with the landlord and Section 8 housing and advised the caller of the fact. 

• At 9:05 p.m., a Park City teacher reported a student had emailed her and was concerned her father was going to hit her step mother. The student reported the father had been drinking at the bar and the fight was just verbal at that point. The student stopped emailing the teacher and there were unknown weapons with two other children possibly in the house. At 9:41 p.m., a deputy was clear of the house and reported the male party was intoxicated and going to bed. The female parties were safe and were advised to call 911 if necessary.


Nov. 9

• At 12:57 p.m., a caller on Ponderosa Ridge Road reported a black lab with a red collar was running in his field with his sheep. He stated a few days prior the dog had crippled one of his lambs. He said he may have to shoot the dog. Dispatch had no record of a lost dog in the area. At 2:12 p.m. a deputy had made contact with the caller.

• At 1:23 p.m., a caller on South Clark Street reported loud music around his house and stated it had started 1 1/2 hours prior. A deputy was advised. 

• At 5:32 p.m. a Park City caller stated a friend had advised him a group of kids in a blue car were at the park and may have “snuck” over to the lot where he keeps his trailer and were smoking. He requested extra patrols and wanted charges pressed if anyone was found on the property. At 5:34 p.m. dispatch advised there is no clothing or physical description and no known length of time for the males to have been on the property.

• At 5:53 p.m. a 911 caller reported a car in the eastbound lane of I-90 traveling west near mm 424. The caller stated they could no longer see the vehicle as he was continuing west. At 6:10 p.m. law enforcement was unable to locate the vehicle.
