New Phone Scam in CW Co.

A new telephone scam is hitting Crow Wing County.

Sheriff Todd Dahl warns residents to beware of a telephone message asking for credit and debit card numbers and/or social security numbers.

The person called is asked to punch their number into the phone and then they are given a number to call with questions or concerns. The number is for a real estate office in New York who was also the victim of a scam.

Unfortunately, the automated scams are just one of many cons and scams that occur on a regular basis in our area, says Sheriff Dahl who reminds everyone “If it’s too good to be true it probably is a scam.”

Walleyes Doing Well In Leech

The walleye population remains strong in Leech Lake according to results of fall test netting conducted on the lake by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The lake’s walleye population is above the long-term average and similar to the 2009 and 2010 averages.
Doug Schultz, large lake specialist in Walker said September gill nets showed an abundance of walleye from 14 to 26 inches, and a nice distribution of walleye within and outside of the protected slot limit of 18 and 26 inches.”
The numbers indicate that actions implemented under the current management plan are succeeding, noted Schultz. Key elements of the plan include special fishing regulations, walleye fry stocking, cormorant control and an increased emphasis on aquatic habitat protection.

Book Scammers Targeting Nisswa Elementary

The Nisswa Elementary School is the object of a scam, according to Principal Erin Herman.   

Herman says a representative from the Atlanta based Ambassador Book Company has been canvassing the local area, looking for individuals and businesses to support the purchase of books for Nisswa Elementary School. This company is providing misleading information and requesting support for a book program for the kids at the elementary school. There is no such book program at Nisswa School, and Ambassador Books has no affiliation with ISD 181, or Nisswa Elementary School.

Anyone with questions about this issue, is asked to contact Erin Herman at Nisswa Elementary School, 218-961-6860.

DNR Predicts Good Deer Season

Hunters who venture into fields and forests for Minnesota’s firearms deer season can expect a good deer season and ample hunting opportunities, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Wildlife programs manager Steve Merchant said,“We can’t guarantee harvest success, but we can assure hunters that good deer hunting opportunities exist throughout Minnesota.”

Nearly 500,000 people are expected to participate in the firearms deer season, which opens Saturday, Nov. 5, throughout Minnesota.

Minnesota’s whitetail deer population is about 1 million. The DNR, which manages the herd based on population goals established with public input, expects this year’s harvest to be similar to the 207,000 deer harvested in 2010.

Minnesota Trooper Assaulted

Minnesota State Patrol Trooper Darcy Gagnon is expected to make a full recovery after being assaulted over the weekend during a DWI arrest.

On Saturday, October 22, 2011, at approximately 1:30 a.m., Trooper Gagnon stopped Elijah Lee Knowles, 26, of Akeley, Minn. on State Highway 34 just east of Dorset corner. After performing field sobriety tests, including a preliminary breathe test, Trooper Gagnon arrested Knowles. As she attempted to handcuff the suspect, Knowles resisted arrest and hit her several times on the head with the trooper's Taser. Trooper Gagnon required staples to close the wound to her head.

According to the criminal complaint, Knowles then put the Taser to Trooper Gagnon's head and pulled the trigger, but the safety prevented the Taser from deploying. Knowles then attempted to take her sidearm, but was unable to get her gun. When Hubbard County deputies arrived on the scene, Knowles fled south on County Road 33 at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
