Cell phone caper

The Buffalo Police Department recently investigated a cell phone theft case that had a happy ending.

The police received a report about the theft of a cell phone belonging to a local high school student.  The mother of the student saw the phone for sale online.  She made arrangements to meet the person selling the phone.  The meeting was at a convenience store in Montrose.  A Wright County sheriff’s deputy assisted the mother with the identification and recovery of the phone.

Buffalo Police Chief Pat Budke told us a juvenile male was being charged with theft, and another juvenile male was being charged with criminal damage to property.  Budke explained the phone’s SIM card was removed and broken.


Sam the hunter

Sam Lefebvre, our sports and school news editor from March 2012 to the summer of 2013, wrote about her first deer hunt a few weeks ago.

Promoted to multimedia producer at the Duluth News Tribune, Sam wrote in the newspaper about her deer hunting experience.  She didn’t get a buck, but she saw a doe go right by the deer stand.

The outing was near McGregor with her fiancé.  It all began with a deal she made with her fiancé.  She would “take my gun-safety” if he would go to a holiday party with her.

Sam said seeing the doe was “such a rush.”
