  • Paperwork and Laptops

    See- Cannabis is medicine and only wonderful people deal with medicinal herb for sick people! Opening up our county to widespread huge marijuana grows will never have any bad consequences!!!

  • Now there is a bright guy. Deport him.

  • Seems to me here lately a lot of crime going on up there Bear River Casino inside the rez ,and the housing areas. And criminal activity in general good job police getting guns ,and dope off the street .Even if it is a small amount.

    • Aquaman knows the answers

      Years ago the sheriff’s department posted stats on the change in calls for service in Loleta pre and post casino. It was shocking then, it’d probably be even worse now. Maybe Kym could assist?

  • So, both men are felons. I assume they are not supposed to be associating with another felon. With all that stuff also, what happened to the other guy??? Chances are, our LE didn’t want to deal with that person because of paper work, no money, etc. He’s probably out on another drug deal tonight. Any other county, they both would be in jail for a while.

  • A guy can’t even carry his personnel supply on him without the man trying to keep him down…

  • Sadly, this “man” was the sperm donor who made my life possible. He is a fucking moron, who deserves what he got. Sadly, he can’t be deleted because he is an American. However, if you find a way to deport Americans, he can be the first. Fucking idiot.
