Eagle cops

Eagle Police were called to a residence in town at approximately 8 a.m. Oct. 16 on a report of vehicle tampering.

Upon arrival, the officer was greeted by the resident who stated that when he came outside that morning he found screws positioned behind three of his vehicle tires. The large drywall screws were wedged between the tire and the concrete and placed so they would puncture the tires when the man backed out of his driveway.

The man said he did not know anyone who would have tampered with his vehicle. The police officer asked if there were any teenagers in the area. The resident noted his landlord has two teens at home and said he would talk with her about the situation.

The landlord called police the next day to say that no one was at the house while the vandalism occurred. She said she didn't know anyone who would attempt to puncture her tenant's tires. However, the landlord did note that her tenant was a Broncos fan and suggested that because there was a game on the day that the incident occurred, maybe someone who doesn't like the Broncos was behind the attempted vandalism.

• On Oct. 20, Eagle Police reported the Eagle Ranch Golf Course Clubhouse sign on Lime Park Drive had been bent down to the ground and appeared to have been pushed over by a vehicle.

• On Oct. 16, police found a bike that had been left at the bottom of the stairs at the police department offices on Broadway. The bike was logged as found and taken inside.
