12/17 - A driver was reported slumped over in his white Jeep partially in the roadway at Midway and Federal Avenues. The driver was on his phone, and an officer tapped on his window. The driver said he was testing cell phone towers, and had a black electronic case and laptop in his passenger seat. The officer told him to move further off the roadway as he was partially blocking traffic from the stop sign at that intersection.

12/18 - The property manager for apartments on Hill Avenue was concerned about the number of people living in a certain unit, and contacted police after it was reported to him that a man injected drugs into his neck into the parking lot before going into that apartment. Police told him to look into his civil options for lease violations, and the man said he was in contact with the owner about looking into barring people from the premises.

- A woman called police when an unknown man knocked on her house on Roosevelt Drive and asked her to call 911. The man had blood on his ear and on his shirt, had trouble breathing, and said he saw people who weren’t there. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

12/19 - Police heard over tribal dispatch that they were looking for a stolen semi truck and trailer heading toward Grand Coulee.

The semi was from Cape Coral, Florida. The driver was an employee of the company but was fired in November and never returned the semi. He was arrested and taken to jail for the theft of the semi and the trailer.
