The Grand Forks Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individuals responsible for “tagging” a building in the 1000 block of S. Washington St. Graffiti can have a negative impact on a community and paint a picture that does not represent the sentiment of the general public.
If you have any information that may lead to the identification of these individuals, please call the Police Department at 787-8000, Text the word “tipster” and the tip to 847411 or email us at email@example.com
Come out and join us at our 6th "Cops in the Community" event at Dakota Harvest Bakery March 26, 2015 from 9-10 am and 2-3 pm. Hope to see you there.

The suspects are described as African American all approximately 6 feet tall with thinner builds. One suspect is wearing a black jacket another is wearing a grey jacket and the third a dark colored jacket. All suspects had their faces covered. The male in the black jacket displayed a black colored handgun. All three suspects fled the store south bound with an undetermined amount of cash. The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Grand Forks Police Dept. at 7017878000.
The Grand Forks Police Department has seen as increase in identity thefts or attempted identity thefts lately. Some have been associated with the filing of taxes and others have been over the phone asking for personal information. As for the taxes, what the Police Department is hearing is the person tries to file the return and the state notifies them their return has already been filed and they are to make a police report. The IRS gives these tips to help prevent identity theft.
• An unexpected email purporting to be from the IRS is always a scam.
• An unexpected phone call from someone claiming to be an IRS agent, either threatening you with arrest or deportation if you fail to pay immediately, is a scam.
• Check your credit report annually.
There has also been an increase in Craig’s List house/apartment postings that are scams. There should be a local number to call to verify the information is correct. Do not send money if you can’t verify the information.
If in doubt call the Police Department at 701-787-8000.
Please be aware of these situations and stay alert. More Posts
