EAGLE ” An Eagle County sheriff’s deputy rescued a wedding dress from getting run over on Interstate 70 Sunday, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The deputy was driving east on the Interstate when he noticed a carve swerving around a white object in the fast lane. He pulled over and found a light pink, peach and white dress with pearls. Ten feet farther, he found a hairpiece.

The deputy estimated its value at $250.

DOTSERO ” A school bus driver reported he saw two boys carrying candy vending machines toward a mobile home park the afternoon of May 16, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A deputy saw a boy carrying one of the machines by a mobile home and the boy told him he found the machine in a grove of trees in a parking lot. The boys didn’t find any money in the machine and they wanted to share candy with their friends.

The deputy explained the importance of calling police when the boys found valuable property and he took the $400 machines to try to find their owner, to no avail.

The boys were neither arrested nor ticketed.

GYPSUM ” A pharmacist caught a 42-year-old woman who tried to fill a fraudulent painkiller prescription, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A doctor wrote three prescriptions, but the handwriting on the fourth for Percocet seemed inconsistent with the first three. The pharmacist told the woman he would confirm the prescription with her doctor and she left.

The doctor denied having written the prescription. Police were called and the doctor faxed a carbon copy of the original prescription to police.

Police arrived at the woman’s home and moments later, the woman arrived in her Jeep. As the deputy asked the woman questions, the woman began swaying from side to side and using the Jeep to steady herself.

Slurring her words, the woman told police she had drank alcohol.

She was arrested on suspicion of felony forgery, felony fraud and misdemeanor driving under the influence.

Man beaten with rake

AVON ” A man who beat a co-worker with a garden rake was arrested on suspicion of committing two felonies Monday, according to an Avon Police Department report.

A 27-year-old man holding a broken rake approached police arriving in a West Lake Village Parking lot.

The man told police that he didn’t get along with the co-worker. The co-worker always bumped him with his shoulder as they walked by each other.

The co-worker slapped the man’s face, the man said. The man dropped the rake and the co-worker picked it up and hit the man, he told police.

The man was arrested on suspicion of aggravated third-degree assault and menacing use of a deadly weapon.
