Eagle Cops

A 27-year-old man sustained critical injuries during a wedding party held last Saturday at the Brush Creek Pavilion.

According to Eagle Police Chief Rodger McLaughlin, officers were called to the site around 10:30 p.m. and the man's injuries were so severe he was airlifted to a Denver trauma center. His condition was listed as stable Tuesday, but McLaughlin noted his injuries are serious.

McLaughlin said police are working to identify other parties who were involved in the altercation and the case remains under active investigation.

Eagle Police were notified Aug. 25 that a local woman's iPhone was stolen while she was doing her laundry at a commercial laundry center in Eagle.

The woman said she set down her phone while she was sorting clothing. After approximately 30 minutes, she noticed it was missing. She searched the premises but was unable to find the phone.

An employee joined the search. He told police he had seen two men inside the business about the same time as the woman. He provided police with information about where the two men live.

The Eagle officer was able to contact one of the men, who vehemently stated he did not steal the phone. The man said there was another man at the business at the same time he was there.

Police are awaiting new leads in the case.

An Eagle Police officer was driving southbound on Eby Creek Road around 11:15 a.m. Sept. 9 when he noted another vehicle straddling a white line. The police report states the vehicle eventually cut off another car at the roundabout.

The officer pulled over the driver and when he processed her driver's license information through dispatch, he learned her status was canceled/denied. He advised the driver of the issue and issued a summons for failure to drive in a single lane and driving while license under restraint. The vehicle was secured and left on the scene.

• A resident along Whiting Road called police to report he found a bicycle hidden in the bushes in front of his home. After asking neighbors about the bike, the man said no one claimed it. Police removed the blue and yellow bike, brought it to the police station and booked it into evidence as found property. To claim the bike, contact Eagle Police at 970-328-6351.

• Several incidents of spray paint graffiti have been reported recently, including areas in Eagle Ranch, along Chamber Avenue, Eagle Town Park and at the Eagle County building.

• A resident contacted Eagle Police to report his passport had been stolen Sept. 10. The passport owner said he had to make a police report so he could obtain a replacement.
