Villa incident a “non event” says Pringle

A deployment of armed police personnel from both the Red Lodge City Police and Carbon County Sheriff's Department descended on a residential home at Mountain Springs Villa after dispatch had received a call from a concerned person who had talked with the resident at the house in question. The incident ended peacefully with the resident “cooperating completely” with authorities said Police Chief Richard Pringle. Pringle commented that the incident was a misunderstanding with a third party whom the resident was talking to on the phone. The third party then called Red Lodge dispatch concerned about the homeowner’s welfare. “He had taken some meds,” Pringle said. The resident was allowed back into his home after being checked by medics. He was no threat to the officers confirmed Pringle. “It was a non event,” he said. Attending the scene were the Red Lodge Police Department, the Carbon Conuty Sheriff's office and Red Lodge Fire and Ambulance.
