10/31/2017 - Locate dog that bit a 13-year old female

October 31, 2017 Crime of the Week

This week’s Richland County Crimestopper is asking the community to help in locating a dog that bit a 13-year old female as she was walking on 6th St. SE in Sidney at about 5PM on October 26, 2017.  The Sidney Police Department received a report from Sidney Health Center that a 13-year old female had been brought to the hospital with a dog bite.  Upon speaking to the victim, it was learned that she had turned off South Central Ave onto 6th St. SE and was walking eastbound.  The victim stated that she had been walking for a few minutes on 6th St. SE when she saw a brown colored dog, that she believed was maybe a pit bull in a yard next to the sidewalk she was walking on.  She did not notice the dog coming up behind her and was bit by the dog on the back of her leg.  The dog then ran off and the victim did not see where the dog went.  She then went home and was taken to the hospital by her family.  The bite caused puncture wounds and bruising to the back of her right leg. The victim is not familiar with the area but feels she or the person that was with her could identify the dog if she saw it again.

It is very important that this dog is located so that it can be determined if the animal has had it proper rabies shots.  Crimestoppers has been asked by the Richland County Health Department and Sidney Police Department to help located this brown dog that may be a pit bull type.  The dog may be owned by someone living on 6th St. SE or a close to the area.  The victim will have to start a series of shots if authorities are unable to determine if the dog is current on it shots.  Please contact Crimestopper, the Sidney Police Department at 406-433-2210 or the Richland County Health Department at 406-433-2207.  

As with any investigation it is possible that a member of the public saw or heard something that may assist investigators with the investigation of this matter. Crimestoppers believes that someone may have information on the brown dog that bit this young female walking on 6th ST. SE.   If you have knowledge or information on any crimes in Richland County, contact CRIMESTOPPERS by calling 433-6666 Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM.

3/31/2017 - Selling of illegal drugs in Richland County
Click to Enlarge

Crimestoppers is asking for information on individuals or groups that are selling or providing illegal dangerous drugs, such as Methamphetamines (Meth), Marijuana, Heroin, prescription medication or any other illegal drug in the Richland County area.  Law enforcement has report that even with the few number of people in our area, there is a large amount of  selling of illegal drugs.  Those under the influence of Meth often become agitated and feel “wired.”  Their behavior becomes unpredictable.  They may be friendly and calm one moment, angry and terrified the next.  Some are compelled to repeat meaningless tasks: others pick at imaginary bugs on their skin.

It is possible that you or someone you love is addicted to prescription drugs.  Most of us take prescription drugs only for the reason the doctor intended.  Nevertheless, an estimated 48 million people (aged 12 and older), according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons in their lifetime.  That figure represents approximately 20% of the U.S. population.

In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in prescription drug misuse or abuse.  This increase has led to a corresponding increase in ER visits because of accidental overdoses as well as admissions to drug treatment programs for drug addictions.

Please contact Crimestoppers if you have any information on those distributing dangerous illegal drugs in our area.  It is known that illegal drug activities lead to other crimes and problems in personal and family life.  So, help us keep our community a safe place to live, work, and raise our children.

3/10/2017 - IRS Scam
Click to Enlarge

March 10, 2017 Crime of the Week

This week Richland County Crimestopper is a Consumer Alert on a scam that is continually hitting our country and Richland County is also not being left out.  Law Enforcement in Richland County has received reports of many different scams over the years, but the IRS Scam is one being reported the most lately.  In the United States thousands of people have lost millions of dollars and their personal information to tax scams and fake IRS communication.  Victims in Richland County have reported thousands of dollars lost to those claiming to be IRS agents. 

How are these IRS-Impersonation Telephone Scams working.

Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not.  These con artists can sound convincing when they call.  They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers.  They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pr-loaded debit card or wire transfer (money order or bank transfer).  If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation and insulting.  Or, victims may be told they have a refund due to them tring to trick them into sharing private information (bank account numbers).  If the phone isn’t answered, the scammers often leave an “urgent” callback request.  They will call repeated times and demand payment be sent trying to break the victim down.

Please always remember the following facts about the IRS

THEY WILL NEVER:

·       Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer.  Generally, the IRS will first mail you a bill if you owe taxes.

·       Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

·       Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.

·       Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.

Scammers Change Tactics -- Aggressive and threatening phone calls by criminals impersonating IRS agents remain a major threat to taxpayers, but variation of the IRS impersonation scam continue year-round.

How to report Tax-Related Schemes, Scams, Identity Theft and Fraud.

Report instances of IRS-related phishing attempts and fraud to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 800-366-4484

Remember: The IRS doesn’t initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information.  In addition, IRS does not threaten taxpayers with lawsuits, imprisonment or other enforcement action.  Being able to recognize these telltale signs of a phishing or tax scam could save you from becoming a victim.

“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!!!”
