For Immediate Release September 11, 2018 On September 11, 2018 at 2:34 PM Grangeville Police Officers were advised of an attempted sexual assault of a Grangeville Women in the parking lot of the Syringa Thrift Store. Sergeant Quintal, Chief Drew and Officer Brainard were dispatched to the scene and arrived within 3 minutes. The suspect fled North on Highway 95 prior to the report being given to the Idaho County Dispatch. Deputies from the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the area and stopped the vehicle on Highway 95 at mile post 268. The driver refused to comply with the Deputy’s commands and drove away north bound on Highway 95 attempting to elude officers. The Idaho State Police, Lewis County Sheriff’s Office and Nez Perce Sheriff’s office and Nez Perce Tribal Police joined the pursuit and stopped the vehicle near Webb Road in Nez Perce County. Once stopped the driver refused to obey commands and was removed from the vehicle and placed into custody. There were no injuries reported during the incident. The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was identified as 32 year old Samuel A Flores of Wenatchee Washington. Flores matched the description and video surveillance footage obtained by officers at the initial scene in Grangeville. Flores was arrested on charges of fleeing or attempting to elude a peace officer by the Idaho State Police. The Grangeville Police Department case will be referred to the Grangeville City Prosecutor for charges pending completion of the investigation. No further information releases expected at this time.

For Immediate Release On Tuesday August 27, 2018 at approximately 1155 hours officers from the Grangeville Police Department, the Idaho County Sheriff’s Department and the Idaho State Police responded to the report of a bomb threat at Grangeville High School.

SCAM ALERT Recently we have been made aware of a new scam being used agianst small buisness's in the area. A person calls a buisness and tells them they are with Avista and a truck is on the way to shut off thier power unless they send money right now. As a reminder, legitimate buisness's will never ask for Western Union, Pre-Paid Credit Cards or Gift Cards. If you recieve a call similar to this, Insist that you call the Official number to the company to deal with the issue. Never give out credit, debit or bank account information to somone calling claiming to be with a company you have service with. These type of scams may not happen just to Buisness's. Individuals should be on the lookout for these type of scams as well.

Did you know that Idaho is listed as one of the top 5 most dangerous states during the 4th of July? With all of our natural resources that we have in this beautiful area, it is all of our responsibility to protect them. While we have heard the excuses that the city aerial fireworks ban is “stupid” it is in place to protect our homes and the area around us. Remember, only safe and sane fireworks are allowed in the city limits. City Ordinance 6-5 outlines the requirements for a permit for fireworks along with the repercussions: “Any person violating any of the provisions of this Chapter or any rules or regulations issued thereunder, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall be punishable by a fine of not more than three hundred dollars ($300.00) or by imprisonment in the municipal jail for not more than thirty (30) days, or by both such fine and imprisonment” Officers will be out in force on the 4th of July and will cite for violations of this code.

DON’T DRIVE LIKE “That Guy” With the 107th year of Border Days approaching our community, we want to remind our residents and visitors of a few things to keep them safe. As people from all over flock to the oldest rodeo in Idaho our streets become busier than ever before. But don’t let the vehicle and foot traffic get you frustrated and in trouble. We will be posting a series of post’s with a few tips to help keep you safe and ticket free!. WHEN TO YIELD! Idaho Code 49-702 When a Pedestrian steps into a crosswalk drivers traveling in both directions must stop and yield for them to cross. Idaho Code 49-640 When approaching an uncontrolled intersection, the driver to your right has the right of way! When approaching a T intersection and the road you are on ends you must yield to cross traffic coming from either direction. Almost all vehicle collisions can be avoided if we slow down and just pay a little bit more attention in the heavy traffic that is coming.

With summer in full bloom more and more people are getting out and enjoying our great community. Many of these people are the children of the community. These are the young people who are enjoying summer to the fullest but sometimes forget to look for traffic and run into the road with no warning. The Grangeville Police Department wants to remind everyone that slowing down is an important factor in keeping our children safe. Our Officers are on the lookout for those drivers that are ignoring the speed limits. Departments across the nation receive more complaints about speeding than anything else. As a reminder the fine for 1-15 MPH over the speed limit is $90, 16+ MPH over the speed limit is $155!!!!!

Ah, summertime is finally here! The weather is finally warming up (sometimes!), the snow is melting, folks are starting their summer vacations and our bodies are finally starting to thaw out from a long winter! I know, you are thinking “That’s all great news Chief, but why are you telling us things we already know?” Well, let me explain. With summer comes activities that we don’t have during the winter. For example: school is out. Which means that our kids are out and about during the day doing the things that they love to do. Like going to the Pioneer Park Pool, the Summer Reading Program at the Centennial Library, playing baseball, softball and disk golf at the Lions Park and gating about town on foot, bicycle, scooter, and skateboard. Which brings me to my next point. With all of the increased activity around town, we as motorists need to keep an extra careful eye out for all of our little ones that are out and about. We also need to remember that sometimes kids don’t make the best of decisions when it comes to being safe around traffic and accordingly we need to drive defensively to help ensure their safety if they do make a mistake. We also need to make sure that we educate our children about the dangers of vehicular traffic and make sure they know the ‘rules of the road’ so to speak. Examples would include: riding with traffic, using proper hand signals for turns and walking their bikes at cross walks. Other things to remember include not riding bicycles, scooters or skateboards on sidewalks in the business district. Riding bicycles, scooters and skateboards on the sidewalk is prohibited in the downtown Business District. You can walk your bike or scooter on the sidewalk in the Business District but you shouldn’t ride it on the sidewalk. Skateboards should be carried by hand or in a pack and not pushed along on the ground in front of you. This is a long time city ordinance that was initiated to help protect people visiting the downtown businesses. But Chief, why would we need an ordinance like this? Well, it is hard for persons coming out of the business to see individuals on bicycles, scooters and skateboards and because of the speeds that can come with riding those types of conveyances it is hard for both the rider and the pedestrian to react in time to avoid each other. Also, many of our visitors to the Business District are older and at risk of greater injury if they are inadvertently knocked down. OK, so you say how do I know where I should or shouldn’t ride? In the downtown Business District there are signs letting you know where Bicycles, Scooters, Skateboards etc. are prohibited. They are mounted on the light poles, are black and white in color and clearly state what activities are prohibited. The signs are mounted somewhat high on the light posts to avoid people striking them with their heads as they pass by. So if you are wondering if it is OK to ride somewhere, look up for the sign. If there is a sign prohibiting riding what you are on please walk or carry it. Usually during summer we receive a few complaints about kids riding on the sidewalk downtown. Some helpful things that you can do to report this activity is to call it in right away. Give us a direction of travel of the kids and their description. That way we can do our best to find them and educate them on how to safely navigate the Business District. On behalf of the Grangeville Police Department we wish all of you a safe and enjoyable summer! We look forward to seeing you all at Border Days! Morgan Drew Chief of Police
