Emergency calls

In Fremont County Sheriff's Office reports Wednesday to Thursday morning:

- Rick Richards, 40, of Lander, was arrested for bond violation at about 6:20 a.m. Thursday at the Fremont County Courthouse in Lander.

- The Fremont County Sheriff's Office and Wyoming Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Riverton and Lander police departments, will be conducting a countywide "saturation patrol" Saturday, Dec. 8. Multiple law enforcement officers will be patrolling state highways, county roads and city streets looking for people who may be driving under the influence.

The primary goal of the exercise is to deter people from drinking and driving by informing citizens that law enforcement will be out in large numbers throughout all areas of the county, looking strictly for those who are driving while impaired. The ultimate goal in this campaign is to have zero arrests countywide for drunk driving.
