While boating on Upper Red Lake on Mother’s Day morning, CO Robert Gorecki (Baudette) and Lt. Pat Znajda observed a snowmobile skipping approximately a quarter mile of open water and turning around on the degraded ice pack. This continued for several minutes before the snowmobiler returned to shore. CO Gorecki later made contact with the snowmobiler and enforcement action was taken.
CO Larry Milbridge (Warroad) worked with fellow officers on angling, boating safety and invasive species enforcement. Unstable weather limited access to Lake of the Woods, but fishing was good when you could get out.
In robberies at Bank of the West in Fargo on Saturday and at a U.S. Bank branch in Bloomington, Minn., on Monday, a man walked in and passed a note to a teller demanding money. The teller complied in both robberies, and the man fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Less than two weeks after graduating from the New York City police academy, more than 1,500 rookie officers have a daunting first assignment: helping to protect Times Square on New Year's Eve. The deployment is just one of an array of security measures — many visible, many not — that the New York Police Department rolls out each year for the event that turns the "Crossroads of the World" into a massive street party that stretches 17 blocks through the heart of Manhattan.
CO Jeremy Woinarowicz (Thief River Falls) received an injured deer call as well as a car-struck snowy owl and a call of possible wanton waste of deer. The wanton waste investigation revealed multiple instances of failing to register big game animals.
CO Stuart Bensen (Erskine) left his residence one morning and observed two deer hunters on his neighbor’s property. The hunters were checked and everything was OK. Bensen reminded the hunters that his property was posted and they should stay off his land. Bensen left the area and returned a short time later to find the two hunters quite a distance onto his posted agricultural land. Bensen contacted neighboring CO Malinowski, who issued citations to the two hunters for trespass.
CO Angie Warren (Thief River Falls) worked the waterfowl opener finding hunters having mixed success. Aquatic invasive species information was provided to waterfowl hunters and a complaint of a nuisance bear was taken. Follow up continued on a possible gray wolf depredation.
CO Larry Milbridge (Warroad) worked an invasive species special project with a neighboring officer, finding overall poor compliance. Enforcement action was taken for waterfowl, angling and invasive species violations.
CO Robert Gorecki (Baudette) observed a lone out of state angler on Lake of the Woods fishing for several days with good success. When contact was made with the angler, he stated that fishing had been slow, but several filleted out walleye were found in his boat. After further investigation the man was found to be in possession of numerous walleye over the limit, including protected slot fish. The man stated that he has done this for years and this was his “one big trip to Minnesota” for the year. Charges are pending on the suspect.
