Blue Earth Police Department News

I would like to thank everyone for their attempts at catching this guy over the last two days. Also for everyone's attempts at locating the owner on Facebook. He is safe and will be cared for.

Interstate 90 closures have now made it to us. Local exits will be closed soon. Other highways will likely follow suit soon. Travel is not advised.

As we enter the Christmas season and 2017 comes to an end we felt it was important to recognize a community member. During National Night Out this year we asked for nominations for "Neighbor of the Year". One nomination stuck out above the rest. It wrote, "Sherri does a lot for us at Blue Ridge. She hosts many events for our children. Easter egg hunts, Halloween, block parties, etc. She started our 'Community Pantry'. She is also the 1st person any of us go to for help and she never turns us away no matter what it is. A ride to the store or a midnight run to the ER. She gives food out of her cupboards so we don't go hungry. I could write a book on all she does for us here." Sherri Franks was chosen as our 2017 Blue Earth Neighbor of the Year. During the nomination process Sherri was also nominated the most total times. As a symbol of our thanks Sherri received a gift card. Thank you Sherri for all you do for your community.

The Faribault County Sheriff's Office was nominated for a K9 grant and needs votes for a chance to win up to $5,000 to be applied towards the program. Please take a moment to vote for them by following the link. You can vote once per day. http://www.aftermath.com/k9-grant/

Blue Earth Police Department and Faribault County Sheriff's Office have been made aware of a mountain lion southwest of Putnam Park in the River Road area. DNR is aware of the animal and extra steps are being taken to track its location. Please keep in mind some safety tips: If you see the animal do not approach it. Most mountain lions will try to avoid confrontation. Feeding deer will attract mountain lions. Avoid hiking or jogging through the wooded areas during dawn, dusk, or at night. These times are when mountain lion are most active. It is recommended to keep pets and pet food inside at night as even large dogs could become prey.

The medallion has been located! It was taped to the bottom of one of the frisbee golf poles near the Putnam playground equipment. Congrats Kyren Sunken and Logan Stelter on their teamwork to find it! They are going to split the prize of $25 Chamber Buc$ Until our next hunt! Thank you all for sharing and spreading the word!

Rain rain go away!! The medallion can be found near here!

The medallion is still hidden! Clues to where it is at will come as the night goes on to make it easier to find! National night out begins soon!

**Parents please help me share this to the kids in town!!** We are going to try something a little different this year for National Night Out. At about 1:00PM there will a small gold medallion hidden somewhere in town. Return it to a Blue Earth Police Officer for some "Blue Earth Buc$" donated by The Blue Earth Chamber. Officers will be stopping at sites around town and others will be at Putnam Park at the PD hosted site. I don't have a set age limit on this but I ask that any kids old enough to be driving around please do not ruin it for the younger ones. From where the medallion is hidden it can see: Green grass and blue skies Big swings and tall slides
