12/13/2016 - Snow Boarder Murder Case reopened
Click to Enlarge

SWEETWATER COUNTY — An unsolved 2006 Sweetwater County murder case will be the subject of a nationally-broadcast television feature early next week.

Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell said Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen will run a special story on the Ben Bradley case on Fox 13 News Channel beginning at 2:00 PM mountain time on Monday, December 12. Local cable subscribers will be able to watch the story on Channel 12.

Bradley, 28, was hitchhiking from his home in Tabernash, Colorado, to Jackson, Wyoming, on a snowboarding outing when he disappeared in the Rock Springs area on the night of Friday, June 2, 2006. He was dressed in brown wool cargo pocket pants, a blue hooded sweatshirt, and a gray t-shirt. He had with him his unique, custom-made Never Summer “split-board” snowboard, a representation of which is pictured here.

Lowell said the snowboard splits into two short skis, permitting the user to climb slopes. The split board can then be reassembled and used as a conventional downhill snowboard.

Bradley’s badly decomposed body was found near the base of Boar’s Tusk, about 25 miles north of Rock Springs, by sightseers on October 1, 2006

An autopsy determined the cause of death to be multiple stab wounds to the chest area.

Bradley’s snowboard has never been recovered. Lowell said Sheriff’s Office investigators have followed up on multiple leads over the years concerning the missing snowboard and Bradley’s movements leading up to his disappearance. He hopes the exposure resulting from Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen’s story will generate still more.

“We’ve made some definite headway in several areas of our investigation,” Lowell said. “Obviously, Ben’s still-missing snowboard is an extremely important factor.”

Anyone with information concerning Bradley, pictured here, or his snowboard is encouraged to contact the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office at (307) 875-1400 or a local law enforcement agency.

GOT DRUGS ????

 

 ROCK SPRINGS POLICE DEPARTMENT ALONG WITH THE DEA ARE TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS  THIS SATURDAY OCTOBER 22 AT ALBERTSONS AND SMITHS IN ROCK SPRINGS

 

Rock Springs, WY – On Saturday, October 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Rock Springs PD and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 12th opportunity in six years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your pills for disposal to either Smiths or Albertsons in Rock Springs.  (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.)  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

If you are unable to make it to one of the drop locations on Saturday, there is a drop box located in the lobby of the Rock Springs Police Department that is accessible 24 hours a day/7 days a week. It is easy, there are no questions asked, and only takes a minute to drop them off.

 

Last April, Americans turned in 447 tons (over 893,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners.  Overall, in its 11 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 6.4 million pounds—about 3,200 tons—of pills. 

 

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

 

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the October 22 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website.

10/10/2016 - Game Warden seeks help to bag poachers

LANDER – Lander Game Warden Brady Frude is seeking information on a bull moose harvested illegally along the Louis Lake/Loop Rd on Oct. 6-7.

“This is really disappointing. A mature bull moose that could have been harvested legally by one of the fortunate few to draw a tag in the area, has been poached,” Brady continues, “Even if this was an unintentional crime, at least the meat could have been donated if someone had contacted us. I would urge anyone with any level of information to please let us know, as it may be the piece we need to solve the case.”

Anyone with information on this wildlife violation may call the Stop Poaching Hotline at (877) WGFD-TIP, online at wgfd.wyo.gov, in a text message to TIP411 (using keyword WGFD), or by calling Brady directly at (307) 332-2704. Reporters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward up to $5,000 if the information leads to a conviction.

5/9/2016 - Door to Door salesmen

Selling door to door? Make Sure You Have a License 
May 5, 2016

According to Chief Pacheco:

In response to a social media posting about suspicious persons selling satellite television services door to door, Rock Springs Police Department is issuing an advisory to those individuals in door to door sales to ensure that you have a valid city peddler’s license.

The Rock Springs Police Department was advised of a post circulating on social media this week advising Sweetwater County residents to be aware of a suspicious person that was selling television services in the area.

Through speaking with a member of Dish Network’s Fraud team, they are not able to verify employees in the area because numerous employees are hired through third party companies to sell the services. However, in the city of Rock Springs all door to door sales must be conducted after obtaining a peddler’s license.

As a safeguard, if someone comes to your residence selling services or items, always ask to see their peddler’s license. Additionally, if you are suspicious or have other concerns please call law enforcement for assistance on our non-emergency line at 307-352-1575.

Additionally. as a salesperson, ensure you have applied for the proper peddler’s license to avoid issues with law enforcement.

Rock Springs Police Department encourages citizens to always ask for identification if companies show up at your residence without scheduling an appointment or a service call.
