Aug. 11
• 8:25 a.m. — A caller off U.S. Highway 89 South reported individuals camped on a county road.  A Park County Sheriff’s Office deputy located the campers and told them to move on because camping along the road is against the law. • 3:55 p.m. — A deputy responded to a Park County business where an owner had originally intended to press charges against an employee for alleged theft, and then the employer subsequently decided not to press charges.  
 
Aug. 12
• 6:42 p.m. — A caller headed north on U.S. Highway 89 South reported a black Dodge automobile ran another vehicle off the road. The caller was ready to file a complaint, but no law enforcement officials were in the area to immediately search for the black Dodge. 
• 11:53 p.m. — A deputy made a traffic stop in Emigrant and subsequently arrested the driver for driving on a suspended or revoked license. En route to the Park County Detention Center, a bear ran out in front of the patrol car and was run over. The vehicle sustained some damage, and no one in the vehicle was injured. The bear died. The bear’s species was not noted in the dispatch report.

The rocks apparently broke windows in two cars parked nearby. • 12:58  p.m. — A deputy was flagged down by an employee at Casey’s Corner Exxon on South Park Street to report a group of motorcycles had driven off without paying for fuel. But they returned and paid after all.
