Dickinson Police Detective Terry Oestreich said it is believed the incidents are related to the rash of vandalism that began last weekend.

Man arrested for violating no-contact order

Officers arrested a Dickinson man Thursday after he violated a restraining order issued against him in March.

Paul was taken to the Southwest Multi-County Correction Facility, where he will be brought before a judge for a bond hearing.

Burleigh County warrant served on Dickinson man

A domestic violence call ended in an arrest on unrelated charges late Thursday night.
