EDWARDS ” Golf balls were hit at two men’s homes, causing thousands in damage to one of the homes, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A man, 41, and his wife heard a loud noise as they were sitting inside their home next to the Sonnenalp Golf Club.

The man went outside and found “six to eight” golf balls in his yard and a hole in his stucco wall, which he estimated would cost $2,000 to fix.

The man and a neighbor, 25, who also complained of golf balls hitting his home, pointed police to a group of homes from where they thought the balls were hit.

A mother said she saw her son, 14, hit two golf balls from their driveway.

The boy was hitting golf balls toward the fairway on the adjacent golf course, he said. The second ball hit a home and he got scared and ran inside.

He denied hitting more golf balls.

BEAVER CREEK ” A man was walking in Beaver Creek Village when someone stole his wallet, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A man grabbed his waist, said “sorry” and thanked him. The man walked back to his hotel and noticed his wallet was missing.

He searched his room for 20 minutes and couldn’t find it, so he walked back to the village. He found his wallet in a puddle of water next to the ice skating rink.

His credit cards were still in the wallet, but $23 was missing.

RED CLIFF ” A window was shattered as some kids shot at bottles between the kids and a truck, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

A 2007 Toyota Tacoma’s window was shattered from the BBs the kids had shot at the Colorado Bowhunters Association Jamboree at Camp Hale.

The kids’ father agreed to pay for the window and they agreed they would not involve police.

But the truck’s owner called police anyway. The woman had entered in a civil agreement with the man, so police would not investigate, a sheriff’s deputy said.

BEAVER CREEK ” A man’s $2.30 license plate stickers were stolen from his dump truck, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

He put them on in May and saw that they were gone after he parked in the Bear Lot.

Police recorded the sticker’s number from his registration.
