Grand County police blotter, March 30-April 1: An apology goes a long way


Criminal mischief— Authorities received a report at around 8 p.m. from the intersection of County Roads 836 and 837 in Fraser that a subject had thrown a bottle at a Lift shuttle bus. It was reported that the male subject was walking his dog heading towards Cranmer Drive, with a light on his head. Authorities spoke to the reporting party who said that the bus driver got too close to the male walking in the street and he retaliated by throwing an empty can at the bus. The bus driver and male met each other down the block and apologized. There was no damage reported.

Suspicious person — It was reported at around 8:30 p.m. from the 300-block of 21st St. in Kremmling that a suspicious male, wearing red shorts and one shoe carrying a shovel, was taunting pets in yards and yelling in Spanish on Jackson Avenue. He threw the shovel and picked up a tree-cutting tool. Authorities located the male and released him to a family member.


Bear — Authorities received a report at around 1 a.m. of a bear near building 19 at Hi Country Haus in Winter Park. The bear was found in the Dumpster.

Moose — Authorities received a report at around 7 a.m. from the Snowblaze Condos in Winter Park that a baby moose was in the area with no mother around. The reporting party said the baby moose was about five feet from his vehicle and he was not sure that he could get to it safely. The moose left the garage about 10 minutes later.

Suspicious vehicle — At about 10:20 a.m., authorities responded to Lions Gate Drive in Winter Park where they discovered a male sleeping inside his vehicle. The man told authorities that he was heading to Arapahoe Basin and stayed in his vehicle overnight. The party was unemployed and living out of his vehicle. The party was required to have an interlock device inside of his vehicle, but did not. The party initially agreed to a consent search, but then immediately locked his vehicle and closed the door. The party then advised authorities he did not want his vehicle searched. Authorities reported that the party had weird behavior throughout the contact and appeared very nervous.
