A 17-year-old Glacier High School student reported missing to the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office was located the following day after online activity and debit card activity led law enforcement and the boy’s parents on a chase across Kalispell and to Martin City. While he was missing, the boy’s father discovered someone tried to change the boy’s Facebook password, and a check of the boy’s bank account uncovered a purchase at a Kalispell store an hour and a half prior.
An unlucky scam artist was caught calling a Bigfork bank, claiming to be a particular customer, and asking to transfer funds to a San Diego location. Unfortunately for the scam artist, the person they were claiming to be was in the Bigfork bank at the time. The incident was reported to San Diego police.
