Wahpeton Police remind citizens to be vigilant

WAHPETON — In the wake of reported home burglaries, the Wahpeton Police Department is encouraging residents take proactive measures.

Home and property owners are advised to ask their neighbors to keep on eye on belongings while they are away. People watching out for their neighbors are also strongly advised to contact law enforcement immediately if a break in is occurring.

“Give us a call as soon as you can,” Wahpeton Police Chief Scott Thorsteinson said. “Calling in the moment gives us a chance to respond quickly. We will continue to investigate from all angles.”

Residents are reminded: if you see something, say something.

Ton mile fee refund process explained

On March 24, 2020, Governor Doug Burgum signed an Executive Order removing spring weight restrictions on state highways. This order will result in purchasers receiving a refund on permits for ton mile fees on spring weight restrictions for loads starting on or after March 24. Haulers who purchased an oversize permit with a start date of March 24, 2020 or later, that incurred ton mile fees due to spring weight restrictions will automatically receive a refund. The refund could take up to two weeks to process. Contact NDHP Permits for questions about these refunds by emailing ndhppermits@nd.gov or calling (701) 328-2621.
