Officer Patterson didn’t forget to take off his costume, he’s just being a little extra heroic. By helping out several local charities, our officers have the opportunity to participate in a No Shave/Nail Polish November. By CPD policy, officers cannot have beards or colored fingernail polish, however, we’re waiving that restriction for officers who have contributed to our local charities. So far this year, our officers have helped the Lion’s Club with their Shoot for Sight, ($1,500 raised) Wyoming Blood Services- Guns and Hoses Campaign (219 lives saved through blood donations) and made donations to the Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative ($1000 raised so far). Our current campaign is raising money for the Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative, whose funds remain in Wyoming to provide breast cancer awareness, education and services: We are proud to serve the community of Cheyenne and if you see one of our officers with a beard, it’s real, please don’t give it a tug.

On October 21 at about 9:30 p.m., CPD officers responded to the 1500 block of Willow Drive for a call of shots fired. Upon arrival, the officers contacted a person who informed officers he was at his car when he was approached by a group of males who provoked a confrontation. This resulted in someone within the group firing a gun and the person shooting back at the group. The group then ran away from the area. Nobody was injured in the confrontation and this case remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.

The CPD is investigating a strongarm robbery which took place at 2029 Dell Range (Big D Exxon) on October 10th. A little after 10:30 a.m., this suspect entered the store and left. He came back several minutes later wearing a ski mask and attempted to take merchandise. When store employees confronted him, he fought with the employees, losing his shirt in the process. He then fled in this white Chevy Trailblazer (please note the missing hubcap on the front passenger's side wheel). We are still trying to identify this suspect and are taking tips through Silent Witness. Since mommy didn't write his name in his shirt, we're still looking for any info to help identify him. If you have information about this or any other crime, call Crime Stoppers Silent Witness at 638-TIPS or go to You will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.00. The caller I.D. system is not installed on the Silent Witness phone lines.

--UPDATE-- The secure perimeter at Alta Vista has been lifted. At about 1:55 p.m. today, the Cheyenne Police Department stopped a stolen ATV near 18th St. and Dunn Ave. The driver, wearing a black shirt, black pants and red gloves, fled on foot. While officers are looking for him, Alta Vista Elementary School has been placed on a secure perimeter, ensuring no unauthorized people can enter the school and that students and employees are safe. We will update this post when the secure perimeter is lifted.

Hey bud, we know you want to be the very best, but we’re pretty sure there weren’t any Pokemon you stole along with all those fishing lures from this guy’s garage... The person in this video is suspected of entering a garage in the 3300 block of Yucca Road on August 30 and stealing a large amount of fishing lures. If anyone recognizes this suspect, please contact Detective Willmarth at or 307-637-6578. We're angling to catch 'em all too- the burglars though, we've got enough Pokemon.

Is this Ann from account services in real life? Either way, she would probably benefit from a card sorter for all those credit cards she’s holding. This suspect used a stolen credit card on September 20 at the North Albertson’s and a Big D Exxon, fraudulently charging over $3,000 to someone else’s card. If you’re tired of people using other people’s credit cards, you can assist us in identifying this female suspect. If you’ve got information on this case, please contact Officer Wiltjer, P2, at or 307-633-6684 and reference Cheyenne Police Department -case number 18-65798.

Congratulations to Sgt. Boyd Wrede on your retirement after 20 years with the Cheyenne Police Department! You will truly be missed! Congratulations as well to Sgt. Dan Long on your promotion to sergeant!

--UPDATE-- Thanks to tips from Facebook, we've solved this one as well. Thank you! On today's Perp-Du-Jour, we bring you a shoplifting from Albertsons which occurred on September 29. At about 2:45 p.m. Bonnie and Clyde here pushed a cart out from the North Albertson's, obtaining 84 items totaling $269.05 in value and a case of heartburn. The couple fled the store with those items in the shopping cart and failed to provide payment. If you can assist in identifying these suspects please contact Officer Eddy, P31, at or 307-633-6629 and reference Cheyenne Police Department case number 18-69781. If you know them, offer them a wafer-thin mint to cap off all their stolen food, one tiny little thin one can't hurt.
