Sheriff Looking For Suspicious Man in Bigfork
Man walked into real estate agency and made anti-Canadian remarks
The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to talk to a man in Bigfork after he walked into a real estate office on Tuesday and made threatening, anti-Canadian remarks. News of the incident has gone viral around the Flathead Valley, although Sheriff Chuck Curry said the man has not broken the law and they talked to him earlier in the week.

“This gentlemen has done nothing illegal other than being a little weird… And people can be strange, this is America,” Curry said. “But it’s kind of been blown out of proportion.”

According to an email from Tia Robbin of the Northwest Montana Association of REALTORS, the man walked into the Bigfork office and was “agitated and upset that the company was flying the Canadian flag.” The email continued to state that the man was later seen walking in Bigfork with a gun, but Curry said that has not been proven. The email describes the man as being in his mid-20s with short curly brown hair and about 5 feet, 10 inches tall.

After the initial incident, the Sheriff’s office was notified and they visited the man, who was staying at a Bigfork hotel. Curry said because of the additional interest in the incident, the police hope to speak to him again soon.

“He is possibly mentally ill, or a little strange… But again, neither of those things are illegal,” Curry said.

@natashavc @TaraAriano @allyzay Oh no, I've been thinking it's a room for all your types of mustards. Recalibrating my ideas now.
