1:29 a.m. — The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office received the first of several driving complaints from Southeast Utah Avenue, Irrigon. Subsequent complaints came in at 7:09 a.m., 7:56 a.m. and 10:44 a.m.

That time a caller reported a black Ford with expired tags. The dispatcher was unsure what the complaint was about, and when another call came in it was asked if the person would hold.

“No, bye,” was the response.
