Police blotter Sept. 16-26: Neighbor tells dispatcher not to get others involved
12:10 p.m. — A woman reported someone impersonating a FedEx employee was trying to gain access to her Kremmling home. It turned out the person was actually an investigator trying to serve a subpoena. The caller reportedly wanted to file harassment and fraud charges against the investigator but was told no crime had occurred.
5:25 p.m. — Someone reported possible poachers outside Fraser, but the individuals turned out to be surveyors.
1:28 p.m. — Dispatchers took a call about a concrete mixing truck blocking a road in Granby.
9:40 p.m. — A man reported being refused service at a Grand Lake bar because, he said, he had previously called in a DUI driver at the bar. The man was subsequently told he had a warrant for his arrest.
5:07 p.m. — After several 911 hang-ups, dispatch tried calling the number back with no answer. On a fourth call from the number, there was no audio. On the fifth call, it was another hang-up.

The caller was warned about the ramifications of abusing 911.

Noon — A man told dispatchers he might have discovered a human gravesite about three-fourths of a mile off Forest Service Road 123 after finding a large cross with a plaque with names on it. The report was relayed to the US Forest Service.
