Steamroller stolen for late-night joyride in Boulder

BOULDER, Colorado – Boulder police are looking for a man they say stole a city steamroller for a late-night joyride.

Some Boulder residents were awakened at about 2 a.m. Tuesday by the rumbling of a steamroller down a neighborhood street. Witnesses told police they saw a man driving the steamroller before crashing it into a can and fleeing.

Both vehicles suffered minor damage, but no one was hurt. Boulder Police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley says witnesses couldn’t agree on a description or approximate age of the driver. Officials haven’t said how they think the steamroller was taken from the city’s Public Works Department.
