Police report mostly crime-free holiday

It was a typical holiday


A few DUI arrests, complaints about fireworks and a couple of bar disturbances. Other than that, Blaine County law enforcement authorities reported a crime-free Fourth of July holiday in the Wood River Valley.

"Overall it was pretty quiet," Blaine County Sheriff's Lt. Ron Taylor said.

Taylor said deputies stopped several vehicles for suspicion of driving while intoxicated, but only ended up making one arrest.

The Bellevue Marshal's Office also made a DUI arrest and received several complaints about illegal fireworks.

Hailey Police Chief Brian McNary reported that his department received some 25 complaints about fireworks and responded to a "couple of disturbances in the bars."

"It's quieter than most," McNary said of the holiday.

Ketchum police spokeswoman Kim Rogers reported that holiday revelers were well behaved in the town. She said one holiday-week DUI arrest was made, but that was last Saturday.

Sun Valley police made one DUI arrest, too. There were also some complaints of fireworks, and a report about smoke turned out to be someone cleaning a barbecue grill.

"It was a typical holiday," Police Chief Cam Daggett said.
