Thefts:

A man, 36, reported shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday that power tools and miscellaneous other tools were stolen from a shop van parked outside a friend's home sometime during the end of October 1999. Investigation continues.

A man, 44, reported Wednesday that a $512 check was stolen from his residence on Glacier Highway.

Shortly after 7 p.m., Thursday, a woman employee, 18, was arrested for concealment of merchandise, and a man, 18, a customer, was arrested for larceny at Fred Meyer. Both were released at the scene.

A woman, 34, reported shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday that $860 cash was stolen from her purse at Big Kmart.

Other:

About 12:30 p.m. Thursday, police received a report of a bundle of ``dynamite'' at the gun range on Montana Creek Road. Explosives experts secured the area, identified the bundle as old road flares, and then disposed of them. The flares were apparently ``kicked out of a vehicle,'' police said.

Shortly before 1 a.m. today, a cab driver requested assistance with passengers who refused to pay their fare. The responding officer arrested a man, 25, on an outstand warrant. A relative of one of the passengers volunteered to pay the fare.

Alcohol-related calls: 3.
