The Riverton Police and Fire Departments responded to a smoke alarm at a residence on Sage Drive at 10:02 a.m. Monday. It turned out to be burned food on a stove and no active fire.
The U-Haul lot at the South Federal Pit Stop has been a dangerous place lately. The second crash in as many weeks to a U-haul vehicle parked there was reported Monday when a gray 1988 International Semi Tractor struck a 2007 Ford Econoline U-Haul van.
Police were called to a residence in town where an individual looking after another person’s residence while they were away arrived to find all the doors open. Police swept the home and found no one inside, and there did not appear to be anything missing.
Police were called to the American Laundry and Drycleaners on Webbwood Road at 3:38 p.m. where a former employee there was attempting to cash out several pre-paid laundry cards with remaining balances totaling $40. The manager on site could not find any documentation that the cards were purchased by the former employee. Police asked if any cards were missing, and it was determined they were all accounted for. No crime having taken place, police left the scene.
A man called police after a collection agency contacted him and told him he owed $2,780.88 to Chase-Manhattan Bank for a credit card the man said he had never owned. The reporting party was concerned because the caller, identified as Portfolio Recovery Associates, also had the last four numbers of his social security number and his date of birth, but they had his middle name wrong. The credit agency also indicated that he had filed for bankruptcy, which again was not true, according to the man, who wanted the information documented. Police took a report and will follow-up with the credit agency.

A vehicle that tried to drive from the Kmart parking lot down an embankment to the Wendy’s parking lot at 10:09 p.m. became high centered and police were called. The vehicle was dislodged and moved. There apparently was no damage, either to the vehicle or to the landscaping.
A fight between a girlfriend and a boyfriend about what friends the woman was communicating with on Facebook resulted in a family fight call at 1:40 a.m. to an address on Commanche Court. The boyfriend would not drop the argument, so police were called to bring order to the household. The girlfriend agreed to go spend the night at her brother’s house to end the arguing.
An employee at the Good 2 Go store in the 200 block of North Federal called police and asked for assistance at 3 a.m. when reporting for work there. An alarm had been tripped.
