Arroyo Drive will be closed from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, for the Eagle Ranch Classic Bike Race.

Arroyo will be closed between Haystacker and Fourth of July Road.

There are no residences on Arroyo and the only access blocked is to the trail head (which can still be accessed on foot and is the location of the race itself). No vehicular traffic will be allowed on Arroyo during the stated times other than emergency vehicles or those vehicles closely associated to the race itself.

Participants and spectators are encouraged to park in the Eagle Ranch Business District and either shuttle or ride to the race start location, which can be accessed from either Haystacker or Fourth of July Road.

Limited on-street parking in the area of Fourth of July Road and on Haystacker Drive will be available, and expected to be on one side of the road only. This will be enforced by the Eagle Police Department.

Eagle Police responded to a call from a local church two weeks ago when an employee noted that someone had damaged a chain located on one of the doors to the building.

The woman stated she had participated in a yard sale at the church the previous weekend and after the event she locked up the building. She noted at that time, there was no damage. However, when she reported to work on the following Monday, she discovered one of the exterior doors was unlocked and the chain lock was damaged.

The officer noted the damage was on an exterior door and the chain lock was destroyed and useless. There were no other signs of damage to doors or to the building's exterior.

The officer searched the inside of the building but did not see any signs or damage of theft. The staff at the church reported that nothing seemed to be missing or damaged.

There are no suspects in the case.

On May 7, a town of Eagle employee found an abandoned purse at Eagle Town Park. The purse contained a wallet with a driver's license and a bank card inside. No other valuable items were found.

Eagle Police contacted the owner, who then arrived at the police station to collect her property. She told the officer the purse was actually taken from her vehicle on May 5.

The woman said she had parked her car on the north side of the park, behind the stage, at around 4:30 p.m. She could not recall if she had locked the vehicle. She returned to her car at around 9:30 a.m. on May 6 and initially did not notice any items missing She later realized her purse was gone.

The woman said there was no damage to her car and the only item missing was a bank debit card. Officers advised her to report the loss of the card to her bank.

• A woman who participated in the Eagle Pub Crawl on May 5 reported her bike was taken from outside one of the stops. She parked the bike outside a local bar, but did not ride it home that night. When she returned to the bar the next morning, the bike was gone. It is a gray and white Huffy brand mountain bike valued at $150.

• After clocking a pickup traveling 36 mph along a 25 mph stretch of Chambers Avenue, Eagle Police pulled over the driver. When asked to provide his driver's license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance, the man said he did not have a license because he had just received a proof of service. When the officer contacted dispatch, he learned that the mans' license was suspended due to unpaid insurance. He was issued a ticket for speeding and driving under suspension. The man told the officer a friend would come collect both him and his truck.
