Grand County police blotter, Aug. 21-23: Stolen bike leads to stolen vehicle


Disturbance — Authorities were alerted at around 5:40 a.m. of an intoxicated man at the Arapaho Bay Campground who was refusing to leave camp, destroying tents and yelling at everyone. The man was reported to have no weapons. The man left shortly after police were called, walking down County Road 6. Police made contact with the suspect at around 6:30 a.m.

Suspicious incident — Authorities received a report at around 12:15 p.m. from a person at Shadowcliff Lodge in Grand Lake who reported a suspicious incident that occurred the previous day. The person said a driver of a motorcycle was in the area and appeared to have dumped a helmet and expensive jacket on the ground then left. The reporting party thought the bike could have been stolen. Authorities would search if reports of a stolen motorcycle came through.

Recovered steal — Authorities responded at around 12:30 p.m. to the Holiday Inn Express in Fraser after receiving information about a stolen bike located on the back of a vehicle that had temporary tags. A search of the vehicle’s VIN found that it was also listed as stolen out of Louisville. No whereabouts were given for the driver of the vehicle.

Fire call — Authorities were called out at around 6 p.m. to a fire on the back side of a trailer in the Granby Jones Trailer Park in Granby. Occupants evacuated from the trailer; no injuries were reported. Flames were showing. It was possibly due to an accident from a gas leak. The fire came under control just before 7 p.m. One of the four family members from inside the trailer was oxygen dependent and the local Red Cross was contacted to help.


Animal — It was reported at around 2 a.m. that a bear was in the area by Cooper Creek Square in Winter Park. The bear ran back into the woods just a few minutes later.
