WEST FARGO—It was a rude awakening for Roman Hedstrom Monday morning. A thief broke into not just his, but a dozen garages at his West Fargo Complex. He says the thefts have taken his sense of security, and has a message for others. It's enough to make your stomach sink. "I came to discover this morning- they took a crowbar it looks like, and popped the keyhole," said Hedstrom. Roman Hedstrom, of West Fargo couldn't believe how his morning started.
FARGO—Some viewers are warning dating app users to be careful, after spotting what looks like a profile of a high-risk sex offender. Daniel Fike Grinder is a registered high risk offender in Fargo.

Despite this, police say taking action is out of their hands.
FARGO—A savage dog attack has left a Fargo woman and her pet seriously hurt. A week ago, Katie Christensen let her puppy Luna into her backyard to relieve herself. What happened next shocked and horrified Christensen, who's now left with a frightening question. One year old puppy Luna used to love romping in her back yard, now she struggles to hobble. This passive, pained dog is a far cry from the bright-eyed pup her owner Katie Christensen knows.
FARGO—Our first snowfall of more than an inch this season in Fargo, has created hazardous travel conditions for last minute shoppers and early holiday travelers. It's taking a few drivers a little bit of time to shake off the rust after the first inch plus snowfall this winter. A few friendly reminders, before you hit the road make sure you've cleared off your lights and cleared your wipers of ice. Even so, Wednesday's weather conditions still lent themselves to several crashes in the region.
WEST FARGO—A West Fargo home looked like a wildlife refuge on Wednesday. This picture shows a coyote wandering around a fenced back yard in the Shadow Creek neighborhood. Wildlife experts say it's best to avoid coyotes, especially ones out in daylight. There's no need to call authorities about one, unless it's too close to children or pets.
FARGO—A jaw-droppingly large collection is up for grabs as one of the largest gun collections in the country goes to auction in Fargo this weekend. The numbers associated with Ed Karel's collection are almost hard to believe: A quarter million dollars, more than 50 years of buying, and at least 800 guns. Now, almost as unbelievable, he's trying to get rid of them. "I'm what they call a gun nut," said Ed Karel, gun collector. Ed Karel isn't just a gun nut, he's a Goliath of guns: the kind of collector who dwarfs others.
FARGO—A disabled veteran and Fargo native says he was treated unfairly by a local business after what he calls an honest mistake. Outside Herd and Horns, parking can be tough to find, especially on a bison gameday. In his search for an open handicap-accessible spot, John Trautman accidentally took a spot meant for Jimmy John's drivers, a mistake he says caused a major headache. Like any trip, to get there, he needed his specialized SUV. It has a lift to get him in and out, and a special license plate noting his Disabled Veteran status.
"Real Men Wear Pink" is much more than a mantra for one Concordia College faculty member. Pink has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness and October is designated to fighting the disease. It's pretty normal for people to don a rosy tie or socks, but Bruce Vieweg went above and beyond in his fight for breast cancer research. Concordia's Chief Information Officer, and resident musicophile is undoubtedly a creature of habit; a very pink creature. From pink toe to pink head.
FARGO—The system used to alert you about serious winter weather has undergone some changes. In an attempt to simplify its system of weather alerts, the National Weather Service has streamlined the terminology it uses for severe winter weather events. Blizzard watches will now be called "winter storm watches," and freezing rain advisories will become "winter weather advisories." "(You) can kind of get confused between the differences," said Chandler Kallock, weather watcher.
