GYPSUM, Colorado –A set of speakers disappeared from a Gypsum woman’s car during a break-in earlier this month. The woman told police the speakers went missing from her Chevrolet Tracker between 4 and 9 a.m. on July 5. The 10-inch speakers in dark gray boxes are worth $350.

Elsewhere on Lost Lane in Gypsum, a man reported a stereo theft from his 1997 Pontiac during the same time period. The black Alpine CD/stereo is worth about $300.

Neither car had been locked. The thefts are part of a string of July 5 car break-ins in Gypsum that prompted the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office to issue a press release urging residents to lock their cars.

• Police were called to an Eagle Ranch home last week on report of two men fighting. When they arrived, officers found the two suspects and a bloody scene. One man was missing part of an ear and one man was missing part of a finger. The two suspects maintained they were friends, but they had been drinking and started fighting. Neither could give a reason for the bloody brawl and they offered to ride to the hospital in the same ambulance. Neither man pressed charges.

• Police responded to a burglar alarm at a local business during the early morning hours of July 6. The alarm sounded at 4:25 a.m. and the business owners discovered a window had been broken at the rear of the building. After a walk-through, the owners reported nothing appeared to be missing but a large rock was located that had obviously been used to break the window. Police collected fingerprints from the area.
