Officers canvased the area, but the person eventually showed up without incident.
1:06 a.m. Officers on patrol observed a bear behind a building near the 400 block of Lincoln Avenue. The bear was “just doing bear stuff,” and the officers did not take further action.
1:42 a.m. Officers were called about a man wearing a black trench coat and doing pushups on the sidewalk outside a business on the corner of 11th Street and Lincoln Avenue. Officers made contact with the man, and everything was fine.
3:26 p.m. Officers were called about a dog that was left in a vehicle near the 1800 block of Elk River Plaza. When officers arrived, the owner of the vehicle returned, and the dog was fine.
