Eagle cops

The owner of a business located along U.S. Highway 6 in Eagle reported that someone had stolen parts from two vehicles parked in front of his store.

The owner said that he had left his shop around 6:30 p.m. Sept. 25 and returned to the business at 8 a.m. the next day. When he arrived at the shop, he notice that two ATVs that were parked in front of the shop had been disassembled and parts were missing.

One of the vehicles was missing rear wheels while the other was missing front wheels and its muffler. The total replacement cost for the parts is $2,195.08.

Eagle Police interviewed neighbors to learn if they had noticed anything unusual the night the thefts occurred. The neighbors did not have any information about the incident but offered to ask around to see if anyone knew anything about the theft.

On Sept. 30, an Eagle woman called police to her apartment to report an attempted burglary.

The woman showed officers pry marks at her front door frame and damage to the skid plate area of the door. Police also found a wood shard on the inside of the apartment near the door.

The police report noted the resident was scared about the incident. She said she had gone to bed the previous night at 9 p.m. and she did not hear anyone trying to get inside. She left her apartment at 9 a.m. the next morning and didn't notice the damage at that time but she did have trouble locking the door. When she returned home at 4 p.m. she saw the marks on the door frame

When asked about possible suspects, the woman said a possible motive could be her prescription pain medication. She noted there had been two previous suspicious incidents at the complex and those residents also had prescription pain medication inside their apartments. She said about a week earlier she was experiencing medical issues and was outside waiting for a friend to take her to the hospital when a "creepy guy" asked if she needed help.

Police asked her to call the next time she saw the man or to get a license plate number so he could be identified. They photographed the door and frame and provided crime prevention information for the woman. A canvass of nearby apartments did not result in any new information about the attempted break-in.

What would election season in Eagle be without a report of stolen political signs?

On Oct. 1, a local man reported a "Romney" sign was taken from his front yard. He added that similar political signs had gone missing in the Fourth of July Road, Brush Creek Road, Capital Street and Eagle Ranch Road areas.

Eagle Police were called to a local restaurant on Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m. on a report of vandalism.

A restaurant employee said some diners had reported seeing a man park a pickup along the street and then a short time later another man walked up to the passenger side of the truck and hit a window with an object. He then unlocked the vehicle, ran around to the driver's side and took off in the car.

The restaurant employee did not witness the incident, but she reported there was broken glass near the sidewalk in front of the eatery. Prior to the police officer's arrival, the restaurant staff swept up the glass to prevent someone from injury.

The officer canvassed the area for anyone involved in the incident but no additional witnesses could be found and no one reported a stolen vehicle.
