Eagle Cops



Eagle Police were called to Town Park Oct. 4 on a report of a teenage boy climbing on the roof of the Centennial Stage.

Officers arrived at the scene around 3 p.m. and saw the youth scrambling to get down from the roof and two other young men fleeing from the area. The two youths said they had not climbed on the roof and had "kinda" discouraged their friend from doing so.

When ordered to come down, the youth on the roof youth climbed down. Characterizing his attitude as "poor," the officers informed him that climbing on the roof was considered trespassing and issued him a ticket. Officers called the youth's father to inform him about what happened and left a phone message about the issue. The father returned the call and said he would be speaking with his son about his actions.

'Bracelet' stolen

The company that fits monitoring devices for Eagle County Court contacted Eagle Police Oct. 2 to report one of its ankle 'bracelets' was missing.

The company employee said a local man was fitted with a device on Sept. 20 as part of a pre-trial/bond condition. The bracelet was valued at $1,824.50. The man was slated to report on Sept. 25 to have the device data downloaded, but he failed to show up for his appointment.

After two attempts to contact the man and leaving voicemail messages instructing him to reschedule his appointment, the company filed a police report listing the monitor as stolen. A warrant was issued for the man's arrest.

Later that same day, the man called the company to report that he had mailed the ankle monitor back via certified mail. He did not include information about a tracking number for the monitor or the mailing address where he sent it. After consultation with the district attorney, the arrest warrant remains in effect.
