Sgt. Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) spent the week working boating and AIS enforcement on Lake Superior and the Duluth/Superior Harbor. Olson followed up on a bear complaint and checked public access on lakes north of Duluth. Enforcement actions were taken for AIS and watercraft registration issues. While checking shore anglers with Officer Duncan, came across an angler using an extra line. After checking ID?s, it was determined that between him and his buddy they had $41,000 dollars of arrest warrants. Both parties went to jail with the help of St. Louis County Sheriff?s Office deputies providing transport.

CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked anglers and boaters on Lake Superior. Watercraft registration and life jackets continue to be an oversight for some paddle board paddlers. Equipment maintenance and repair items were handled. Questions were answered in reference to nuisance animals and enforcement action taken for watercraft and angling violations.

CO Troy Ter Meer (Marine Unit) worked on finishing up some investigations, reports, and evidence throughout the week. He also worked on equipment maintenance, did some ATV patrol, and a commercial investigation.
