Eagle Police were called to Red Canyon High School last week on a report of a trespass incident in progress.
School personnel noted that a male party had been hanging out around the building and he was not welcome on the school grounds. The suspect was familiar to the officer.
The officer contacted the suspect and told him he was prohibited from loitering around the school. The officer said the suspect mumbled something and walked away.
Eagle Police responded to an apartment complex in town last week when a resident reported damage to a parked trailer.
When the officer arrived, the owner showed him several soccer ball marks and a dent on the right edge of the trailer “which appeared to have come from a ball-sized object.” The owner said a group of kids had been kicking a soccer ball around the parking area and eventaully the kids started kicking the ball against his trailer.
When the officer searched the area he found a pair of juveniles. The kids admited they had been playing soccer in the parking area and had kicked the ball against the trailer, trying to hit a cone that had been placed on the hitch.
The officer got the names of all the kids involved in the game and contacted their parents to explain the situation. The parents agreed to contact the trailer owner to arrange payment for damages.
The driver of a fuel tanker that overturned at the Eagle westbound Interstate 70 entrance ramp last week was cited for careless driving. The driver admitted he drove into the roundabout too fast. Investigators with the Colorado State Patrol estimated the truck was traveling at more than 40 mph when the accident occurred.
