Police Get Calls About Bikinis, TV Remotes

Law enforcement agencies depend on citizens in the community to be their eyes and ears. But officials in this southeastern Idaho town aren’t sure how to respond to reports of skimpy bikinis, lost TV remotes, menacing squirrels, and a report of a neighbor’s shrub trespassing.

“You try to help, you don’t want to seem uncaring,” said Randy Lewis, a captain with the Rexburg Police Department.

Those kinds of calls come in daily to the police, including one where Lewis ended up using a lasso to capture a hissing badger running loose in an apartment.
