An Eagle County Sheriff's deputy contacted Eagle Police June 29 to report he had taken possession of a gun found at the northwest sidewalk at the intersection of Chambers Avenue and Eby Creek Road.
The deputy reported that at about 6:50 p.m. a female in a blue vehicle flagged him down while he was on the Eby Creek Road overpass. The woman said she had just seen an object that looked like a gun fall from the back of a pickup truck.
Because of the seriousness of a gun sitting on a public road, the deputy immediately headed to the site described. He did not find the gun in the road, but after a brief search he found it on the grass next to the sidewalk. The deputy reported the magazine was loaded and inserted into the gun but there was no round in the chamber.
Eagle Police ran the gun serial number through dispatch and there was no record associated with the firearm.
Later that same day, an Eagle man reported he had lost his Glock .40 caliber handgun. He said he was transferring some items from one vehicle to another and set his pistol on his truck's running board. He was headed home when he realized the gun was not inside his truck. He retraced his route several times but could not find his gun.
After the man presented information to prove he was the gun's rightful owner, Eagle Police returned the firearm.
An Eagle Police officer was patrolling traffic in the Eagle Ranch area on July 1 when he observed a vehicle rounding the corner near Brush Creek Elementary School at a high rate of speed.
The officer stopped the driver to discuss the traffic issue and when he approached the vehicle, he detected a strong marijuana odor coming from the car.
When asked, the driver said he had a medical marijuana card and that inside of his car he had "trash" from some plants that he grew at his home. The man told the police officer that he was taking the marijuana debris to the woods to bury because with the current fire ban, he could not burn the items to dispose of them. He said the items were stems and leaves - unusable parts of his marijuana plants.
The man told the officer he promised his wife he would stop using marijuana and that he would dispose of all his plants and that was what he was doing with the items in his car.
While the officer was speaking with the man, his wife drove up. She confirmed that her husband had a medical marijuana card.
When the officer returned to the man's vehicle, he asked the man to take him to his residence to confirm he possessed a medical marijuana card. The man did so, and the officer noted that the card appeared to be expired. However, due to issues with the state's medical marijuana registry and the issue of a possible grace period, the officer opted not to pursue drug related charges. He offered to get rid of the plants and the man agreed to turn them over. The man was cited for speeding.
A Eagle man contacted police July 3 to report he had found a hat and a pair of sunglasses in his basement.
The man said the items did not belong to anyone in his household and that he found them sitting on a downstairs sofa that morning. The man said he usually locks his residence at night, but had forgotten to the previous evening. After he found the items, he also discovered that his back door was closed, but not latched tightly.
There were no signs of burglary in the residence.
Eagle Police responded to a residence in town July 1 when a vehicle owner reported one of his tires had been slashed.
The reporting party said he routinely parks his truck behind his residence in the older part of town. He said he had left his truck in the usual spot about 11:30 the night before and when he went out to the vehicle around 8 a.m. the next morning, he discovered his driver side right tire was flat.
When he jacked up his truck to fix the tire, he found that the side wall had a cut in it that was consistent with a tire being slashed.
The truck owner said he did not know who could have vandalized his truck and the estimated cost to replace the tire is $200.
