Grand County police blotter, Jan. 5 – Jan. 9: Subway ‘too good’ to leave; LSD
FRIDAY, JAN. 5
Theft — It was reported to authorities at around 3:30 p.m. that the occupant of a red Toyota had taken a red ski wagon from Winter Park Resort, put it in their car and took off, heading westbound on U.S. Highway 40. Authorities caught up with the vehicle and issued the occupant a summons to appear in court.
Unwanted subject — Authorities received a report at around 8 p.m. of eight unwanted subjects inside the Subway restaurant in Winter Park. It was reported the people weren’t creating a disturbance, but refused to leave as the store was closing.
SATURDAY, JAN. 6
Trespassing — It was reported to authorities at around 3 p.m. that an unticketed passenger, a 50-year-old black female, was discovered aboard the Amtrak as it was heading into Fraser. The subject was later dropped at a nearby hotel.
SUNDAY, JAN. 7
Disturbed person — Authorities received a report at around 2:30 a.m. of a heavily intoxicated female at a location in Fraser who wanted to report a “stealing at Ullrs.” Two officers followed approximately three sets of footprints in the snow to Winter Park Lodge II as they attempted to contact the reporting party by phone, but received no answer. The female had moved locations within the town and was yelling on the line with 911. Law enforcement reported she was in possession of possible LSD and was taken into custody.
Suspicious incident — It was reported to authorities at around 12:45 p.m. from the 300-block of Deer Trail in Granby of a possible attempted burglary in the home next to the reporting party. A vehicle had been seen pulling into the unplowed drive of the home and someone was approaching the door. Authorities found the residence to be secure and no sign of criminal activity.
MONDAY, JAN. 8
911 hangup — A text message came through to 911 at around 2:25 a.m. that read, “Help.” The reporting party stated that a camper behind a location in Winter Park was engaged in possible criminal mischief as two subjects were breaking in and fighting in the hallway. No response was received from the camper, but authorities made contact with the reporting party, a 34-year-old female, for whom authorities suggested needed a psychological evaluation and paged EMS.
Fire call — Authorities received a report at around 8:30 a.m. of a fuel spill at Kum & Go in Granby. Over five gallons of gasoline were heading towards the storm drain.
