County cops

A deputy saw a car with defective license plate lamps driving east on U.S. Highway 6 on Sept. 23. He made a U-turn and contacted the driver.

The 27-year-old woman didn't have a driver license due to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and unpaid fines in Texas. She was cited for driving with a suspended license and made arrangements for a ride home.

A deputy stopped a motorcycle for speeding on Avon Road Sept. 23.

He was cited for speeding and driving without proof of insurance. The bike was impounded.

Somehow a commercial cargo truck from Dallas ended up with the wrong type of fuel in its tank in around Sept. 24.

The owner of the truck said an employee drove the diesel truck to Gypsum. He went to pick up the truck at the employee's house and it wouldn't start. It only created a lot of smoke.

A mechanic said 34 gallons of unleaded gasoline were in the fuel tank. The repair cost $700.

The employee told a deputy he knew the difference between diesel and gasoline. He denied responsibility even though he acknowledged his boss owed him money.

A deputy stopped a car in Gypsum on Sept. 14 because it didn't have break lights.

• A wallet with $1,200 cash was stolen from a car on Rangeview Drive in Gypsum during the day on Sept. 21.

• A new $240 stereo was stolen from an unlocked car parked in Eagle River Village in Edwards on Sept. 24. Another unlocked car that belonged to the same person had been rummaged as well.
