EAGLE ” A suspect with whom a runaway had done drugs ran away from police, prompting a reverse 911 call from police, authorities said.

A drunk man was weaving in his car along Highway 6 when he was pulled over. The man knew one of his passengers was a juvenile who had been missing for three weeks. The man was jailed for harboring a runaway, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, driving under the influence and careless driving.

The runaway, who was ticketed for having alcohol, was later riding with the deputy when she pointed out a man she had stayed with at Lake Creek Village in Edwards. The man gave police his wallet, ran away and police chased him.

Residents got two calls from police about a bald man with tattoos on his neck who was last seen in Eagle Villas.

The man may have had weapons and was not to be approached, the reverse 911 message said. A few hours later, another message said the search was called off, but if the man was spotted, call 911.

EAGLE ” A drunken, foul-mouthed woman who kicked her mother’s car was ticketed, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

Two women were walking on Wall Street about 1 a.m. when a sheriff’s deputy saw one of them kick a car.

The woman, 21, cursed at the deputy, said she was 20 and handed over her driver’s license. The woman, who had vomit covering her sweat shirt, had kicked her car and her mother was coming to pick her up, she said.

When her mom arrived, the woman cursed at her mom and told her to leave.

The deputy handed the woman her driver’s license and she walked away, screamed and told her mom she wouldn’t go with her.

The deputy told her to calm down and ride with her mom, but she cursed again and walked away. She was ticketed for misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

GYPSUM ” Two men asked some people whether they owned the truck the pair was about to break into, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

Some people were taking turns riding an all-terrain vehicle on Spring Creek Road when a man with spiked hair and his passenger drove up in a white car.

The men asked the people whether they owned the Toyota Tundra up the road. They left and came back two more times.

Later, a man from the group saw the men inside the truck. The man went to tell the truck’s owner, who was riding a dirt bike in the area.

The truck’s window was broken and $46 worth of stuff was stolen.

Police did not find the men.
