No parking

A 60-year-old Gypsum man called in to report an ongoing problem with a person parking on his lot at his residence.

The deputy talked to the wife of the man, who acknowledged she was the one who had parked there, and that she knew it wasn’t her property.

The family was warned to cease parking their vehicles in that lot.

Graffiti guessing

An off-duty deputy was out enjoying the outdoors near Gilman, when she saw three people walking in the town.

The deputy also noticed there was new graffiti on the buildings where the trio came from and then saw a vehicle come to pick up the three.

The deputy made note of the incident and took photos for future questioning about the graffiti.

Speeding nets warrant arrest

Near Avon, a 37-year-old man was pulled over for speeding.

When the deputy approached the driver, she noticed that both the driver and passenger side windows were down, which was the case when the deputy observed the car in motion. The deputy could smell an odor of alcohol when she requested the standard documentation from the driver.

The driver handed over registration and insurance, but no license. When asked again, he provided the deputy with a Mexican driver’s license and he told her that he had only had about two or three beers a few hours earlier.

When the deputy ran the driver’s information, an active felony dangerous drugs warrant was in effect for the man.

The deputy called for backup and re-contacted the driver. She asked the man to exit the car, she handcuffed him and placed him in the back seat of the patrol car.

While in traveling to the Eagle County Detention Facility, the man became very argumentative regarding the validity of the arrest and began swearing.

Loud music nets warrant arrest

In Gypsum, a 32-year-old man was driving while playing extremely loud music.

A deputy pulled over the vehicle, which had Texas license plates. The deputy explained to the man that the town of Gypsum has a noise ordinance about loud music/noise. When the deputy ran the driver’s information through the system, he noticed there was an active warrant out of Garfield County, and that the man’s bond was set at $1,000.

The driver parked the vehicle and secured it at the high school parking lot, and the man was transported to the Eagle County Detention Facility.
