It’s no secret by now that one of my favorite things to do is read the Sartell Police Department blotter. What they consider to be news worthy is a little endearing and highly entertaining. It’s always nice to read police reports and realize that not everybody is always up to shady things! Sartell is proof of that.

Without further ado, here are some of my favorite police calls spanning from March 2-8;
