Fraser Winter Park Police are leaving no stone unturned as they investigate a mysteriously moved boulder.

On Tuesday, police shared that a large boulder in Fraser, near the Lions Ponds, had been dragged several hundred feet and was found near Safeway.

Fraser Winter Park Police Chief Glen Trainor said he believes a truck or vehicle with an attached trailer caught the boulder as the driver was turning onto US Highway 40 and then carried the boulder down the road a ways before dislodging it.

Trainor added that the driver should have called dispatch to report the incident and could face a charge of leaving the scene of an accident.

FWPPD is asking anyone who may have seen the incident to call 970-722-7779.
