According to a social media post on the NCSO Facebook page, Natrona County Sheriff's Office Investigator Drew Cotton was recognized at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) Award Ceremony for his work investigating Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC).
The Natrona County Sheriff's Office announced that their Volunteer Search & Rescue team responded to a call, shortly before 7:00 p.m. on Friday, regarding a missing juvenile in the area of Santa Fe Circle and Cole Creek Road in Evansville, Wyoming.
On Wednesday, Casper Fire-EMS revealed to K2 Radio News that a suspicious package delivered to the Hall of Justice required the presence of many responding units, including their Regional Response Unity, which specializes in hazardous materials.
"Over the course of 18 hours, trained crisis negotiators used a multitude of tactics in an attempt to peacefully resolve the situation," the NCSO wrote. "During the incident, there was exchange of gunfire between the armed barricaded subject and law enforcement."
A man claiming to be the father of the suspect in Friday night and Saturday morning's standoff with local law enforcement has reached out via social media to both apologize to and thank officers for how they handled that tragic situation.
The Natrona County Sheriff's Office recently said on their Facebook page that there's a scam going around in which somebody or somebodies are falsely identifying themselves as NCSO deputies, lieutenants, or captains in an attempt to gather personal and/or financial information.
