An official with the Eagle County Early Head Start filed a report with Eagle Police recently after she found evidence that an unknown person had gained unauthorized access to a program bus.
The bus, which was parked along Fifth Street near Broadway, smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. The vandals gained access to the vehicle through the unlocked rear exit door.
Noting that it was not the first time program officials suspected someone had been inside the vehicle, Eagle Police suggested the program find a way to secure the back door when the bus was not occupied and parked overnight where it could be accessed.
"There are no suspects although numerous juveniles who have less than honest intentions roam that area of town frequently," the police report noted.
The owner of a townhome unit in Eagle contacted police Dec. 27 to report that one of his tenants had reportedly taken a guitar and amplifier stored at the residence.
The owner said that the tenant had access to the items, which were stored at the residence. The tenant reportedly told members of his family that he had taken the items and pawned them at a Front Range location.
The landlord asked police about his options regarding the alleged theft and opted not to file criminal charges. He decided instead to speak with the tenant and his family to get reimbursement for the missing items.
• An Eagle man reported his vehicle tires were slashed sometime during the night of Jan. 3. He could not provide police with any suspects for the vandalism and the officer noted marks on the tires supported the man's story that they had been intentionally slashed. The value of the tires was estimated at $325.
• Someone vandalized the Eagle Town Park restrooms during the daytime hours of Dec. 14. Paint was thrown all over the interior of both the men's and women's restrooms and containers of "washable project paint" were found in the restroom trash cans.
• An unknown vehicle plowed over the stop sign at McIntyre Street approaching Sixth Street. The vehicle was driving erratically on snowpacked and icy streets when it spun out of control and drove over the sign, breaking it off at ground level. The vehicle then left the scene, again driving erratically. The estimated repair cost is $150.
