Eagle Cops

Bus shelter burned down

Eagle Police were called to the visitor information center on a report of a dumpster fire at the facility.

When the officer arrived, pedestrians at the center told him the fire was actually at the ECO Transit bus stop. The officer saw that a trash can was on fire at the shelter, and he grabbed a fire extinguisher to battle the blaze. However, by the time he approached the area, the shelter roof was on fire and the officer knew the extinguisher would not be sufficient to douse the fire.

The Eagle Fire Department arrived on the scene and contained the fire. The officer was unable to find the person who first reported the incident.

After the scene was secured, the officer spoke with a representative of ECO, who noted that there were no cameras running on the buses for the route. The incident was turned over to the fire department for investigation.

Hit and Run and warrant

An Eagle officer responding to a hit and run crash that happened at the Sylvan Lake Road roundabout discovered a passenger in the suspect vehicle had two active arrest warrants out of Boulder County.

The warrants were for failure to comply on a domestic violence/assault/child abuse charges. The suspect said he was confused about the charges. Warrants issued in the case each had $6,000 bonds attached.

After confirming the warrants were valid, the Eagle officer arrested the passenger and transported him to the Eagle County Jail.

Court appearance and warrant

During a municipal court session in Eagle, the court clerk discovered that one of the defendants had an active arrest warrant.

An Eagle officer confirmed the young man had a warrant for failure to comply. The municipal judge moved the man’s hearing to the top of the docket and after he completed his appearance and exited the courtroom, he was placed into custody and transported to the Eagle County Jail without incident.

Tires slashed

Eagle Police were called to an Eagle Ranch home when the resident reported his two front tires had been slashed.

The victim said that when he woke up and went outside to his truck, he discovered the tires had been destroyed. The man then left for school, noting he would contact the police when he was done in the afternoon.

When he spoke with an Eagle officer later in the day, the young man said he drove his truck home the previous evening and did not notice any problems. His first indication of trouble was when he went out to the truck around 8 a.m. and discovered that both front tires were flat. He then showed the officer the slash marks on the tires.

The young man said his girlfriend’s former boyfriend was the only person he thought might be angry with him. When officers contacted the former boyfriend, he categorically stated he did not vandalize the tires.
