EDWARDS ” A golf pro broke a window of a Sonnenalp Golf Club home, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The homeowner, 54, found a golf ball stuck in the window and went outside to talk to the golfers she thought had hit her home. A woman golfing with a man told the homeowner that the man, a golf pro, had hit the home.

The golf pro, 29, said he would pay for the window and gave the homeowner his business card.

The woman called police because she heard that neighbors were having trouble getting their broken windows paid for.

The golf pro said the homeowner was supposed to call him when she got an estimate, which she had not yet gotten.

In the past, golf balls had hit the home three other times and caused a total of $1,000 in damage.

AVON ” A man who urinated outside a bar was caught with hallucinogenic mushrooms, according to an Avon Police Department report.

As police were running his name, the man repeatedly asked if he could put his cell phone in his car because the battery was dying.

Police refused, and found that the man had failed to go to court for a possession of marijuana charge.

The man was handcuffed and a plastic bag of mushrooms was found in his pocket.

He was arrested on felony suspicion of possession of a schedule one or two controlled substance and misdemeanor failure to appear.

EDWARDS ” A woman’s diamond ring was stolen from her home while she was on vacation, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The woman, 67, left for several weeks starting in May. When she got back, she checked for the ring and it was gone.

The ring was 14-carat-gold with eight diamonds set in it. The woman had a couple of places she liked to hide the ring, including her husband’s black cowboy boot.

The last time she wore it was in December 2006.

No one had broken into the home and nothing was out of place.

The woman said she would call police if she found it.
