Sirens & Gavels

Overheard on the Scanner: 3-29-13

For the week of March 22 through March 29, here’s snippets of scanner chatter between law enforcement, dispatch and first responders.

3-23-13 @ 5:30 p.m. - A couple of kids were seen lighting pieces of paper on fire and then playing basketball at Longfellow Elementary. One of them was wearing a cookie monster hat.

3-23-13 @ 9:55 p.m. - It’s not even 10 p.m., but officers contacted a passed out male at Irv’s Bar and recognize the man as “their good friend.” They ask dispatch if he’s welcome at detox, but apparently no - he’s banned for a year.

3-26-13 @ 2:32 p.m. - A caller tells dispatch they saw a person riding mattress attached to the top of a moving vehicle.

3-28-13 @ 1:21 p.m. - Dispatch says a male hit his mother in the head and adds, “They’re both adults.”

3-28-13 @ 7:54 p.m. - An officer is trying to identity a woman by the tattoo on her chest, but he tells dispatch he doesn’t know what the tattoo is without looking further.

3-28-13 @ 8:42 p.m. - A dispatcher corrects herself after pronouncing the Ferry County town as Cure-loo instead of Curlew.
