Pay Attention or Pay the Price. .Crime is increasing all over By ]ean Doran Matua, Editor Kimball's chief of police Jim Frilstad reported to the city coun- cil June 1 that he has been very busy. Burglaries, petty thefts, gas cyphoning - all are being perpe- trated more, in Kimball and all over. Frilstad explained that these are crimes of opportunity, that the criminals carefully "case" busi- nesses and situations before strik- ing. One popular method used is cutting the phone lines (which disables an alarm system that does not use a modem/wireless backup), waiting an hour or so to see if anyone shows up, then breaking in and taking what they want. Al.though this can happen at any time of day, several of these crimes have been committed at around 4-5 a.m. Please be watchful for yourself and your neighbors, and report any suspicious activity to authorities. The Kimball police can use your help in solving one local crime, at 11:25 a.m. Wednesday, May 20, a commercial extended-cab pickup truck backed up to the used-oil depository at A.M. Maus and Son. A plastic drum of oil was pushed off the truck; it broke on impact, spilling oil partly into the oil pit and partly into the city's sewer system. Within about 20 seconds, Frilstad said, the pickup driver had dropped his load and fled the scene. Because of the fast action by Maus employees and city workers, most of the oil was prevented from entering the city's water treatment system. The police were able to ascer- tain that the pickup was not locally owned, but surveillance video was not able to capture iden- tifying information. (Two pho- tos extracted from that video are reproduced below.) If you can help identify either the pickup driver or the company that owns it, please call the Kimball police depart- ment at (320) 398-2871. Kimball police are also involved in increased traffic stops as part of the current "Safe and Sober" and "Click It or Ticket" campaigns.
