GILLETTE, Wyo. — Here is a summary of notable crimes in and around Gillette on Wednesday, July 3 and Thursday, July 4, obtained through law enforcement reports compiled by the Gillette Police Department and the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office.

Destruction of Property, Garner Lake Road, GPD

A report of a damaged porta-potty at the Energy Capital Sports Complex was made to the Gillette Police Department on Wednesday. The interior damage was done by fireworks, which blew apart the entire lower bowl of the porta-potty. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and there are no suspects at this time.

Theft, July 3, GPD

A 37-year-old woman reported her boyfriend, 33, for allegedly breaking into her room and breaking a window before stealing her phone and wallet and then slamming her into a wall. Responding officers noted the woman was highly intoxicated when they made contact with her and she had trouble holding conversation with officers. The boyfriend denied having gone into her room since leaving jail and denied the theft. Officers later made contact with the woman at a nearby bar, where she was found to be in possession of both her phone and her wallet.

In another call, the same woman reported her boyfriend had intentionally sought out where she was staying at the Anchor Hotel and had gotten a room nearby in a deliberate violation of his bond. When looking into it, officers found that she had been the one to book a room after he had, and that she had called the hotel to verify he was there. She also told officers he had come to her room and hit her and put his hands around her throat to choke her. In both incidents of reported harm by the boyfriend, officers did not see any physical signs of harm or abuse. The woman was charged with intoxication, stalking and making false reports.

Public Intoxication, July 4, Gallery View Drive, GPD

A 57-year-old woman contacted the Gillette Police Department in the early hours Thursday to report a man, visibly intoxicated, sleeping on her porch. The man, 21, was shirtless and shivering. When officers made contact with the man, he was unable to tell officers his home address and had trouble standing. He was arrested for intoxication.
