Throwback Thursday! Earlier this month Sgt. Henning, and retired Sgt. Travis Quella, got to meet up with Eau Claire Police Department's oldest living Officer 91yo Carl Skamfer.
Officer Skamfer is enjoying his retirement years in Las Vegas. The Throwback photo shows Officer Skamfer on the right and the late Police Chief Don Johnson on the left.
Thank you for your help! Since the below FB post on January 3rd, we received a lot of help, and on Tuesday Officers were able to arrest suspect David J Herwald 48yo in connection with this case.
We are aware of the other thefts of catalytic converters in our area and are still investigating if they are connected with this incident or the suspect.
At 4am this morning Officers were dispatched to the 2100 block of Sherman Creek Rd for a domestic argument between a male and female. During the argument, the male displayed a gun but did not threaten the female with it. Alcohol was also believed to be involved.
The female was able to leave the residence and contact police. Our dispatchers maintained communication with the female, and our Officers held a perimeter on the residence. The safety of the family members involved, the neighborhood, and the community is our highest priority. Neighbors were contacted and asked to shelter in place. We also contacted student transit regarding the morning bus routes for neighborhood children.
The male was taken into custody around 8am this morning. All individuals involved in this case are safe.
The case is still under investigation and we will release more information when possible.
Tuesday Trivia Answer! When you are walking on a street, and there is no sidewalk, you should walk on the left side, against traffic.
If you have wheels, use the right side of the road. If you don't, use the left.
