SCAM ALERT!!
02/19/2020

SCAM ALERT!!

We had a woman call in today because she had received a phone call from a man with a southern accent claiming he was from our office and that she had a warrant for failure to appear in court. They tried to convince her to pay part of her bond over the phone. He was specific enough to use her name, our office’s name, and claimed to be one of our Lieutenants. THIS IS A SCAM CALL. We do not call people on the phone for warrants. If you receive such a call, do not give them any information and hang up. The number they called from was (208)398-4554, but it is possible they could use other numbers as well.

Today marks the 77th anniversary of the sinking of the United States Army Transport Dorchester and the selfless acts of four Army chaplains aboard. The Dorchester tragically sunk on Feb. 3, 1943, while crossing the North Atlantic, transporting troops to an American base in Greenland. A German U-boat fired a torpedo that struck the Dorchester, killing 672 of the 902 officers and enlisted men, merchant seamen and civilian workers aboard. Many of those survivors owe their lives to the courage and leadership exhibited by four chaplains of different faiths, who, in sacrificing their lives, created a unique legacy of brotherhood.

As soldiers rushed to lifeboats, Reverend George Fox (Methodist), Jewish Rabbi Alexander Goode, Reverend Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed) and Father John Washington (Roman Catholic) comforted the wounded and directed others to safety. One survivor watched the chaplains distribute life jackets, and when they ran out, they removed theirs and gave them to four young men.

As the Dorchester sank, the chaplains were seen linked arm in arm, praying.

The Blackfoot Police Department and Bingham County Sheriff’s Office got the opportunity to test out some really cool new technology..
“Lightweight rifle rated body armor”!
These new rifle rated plates stopped EVERYTHING! The new body armor plates weigh just over 2 lbs (compared to military style armor at 13-15 lbs).
Some of the calibers tested: .338 mag; .308; .223 (even green tips); .454; 44; and shotgun slugs-1oz. The armor even stopped a couple of arrows! VERY IMPRESSIVE!

Just a friendly reminder from the Blackfoot Police Department:
Please lock your vehicle’s doors!

*Autos left running and unattended to defrost/heat up are often targeted for vehicle theft

*Leaving your vehicle running for a “short trip” into the store in a public place is a perfect setting for a crime of opportunity.
-Never leave your young children alone in a running car

*Avoid leaving valuables (purses & electronics) in plain view to deter quick “smash and grabs”

*Please lock your doors while parked for any length of time especially at your residence overnight to avoid Vehicle Burglary.

Auto thefts and vehicle burglaries pick up drastically this time on year! Please help us - to help you protect your property and loved ones..
