Trespassers party in Vail home

VAIL, Colorado – Uninvited partiers might have trespassed in a Vail, Colorado man’s home.

On July 2, a man contacted police about a break-in at his house the night before. The man said he had been reading a book in bed when he heard male voices in his family room. Thinking the men were just friends of his granddaughter’s, the man ignored the ruckus.

When the man got up the next morning at 8:15 a.m., he spotted empty whiskey bottles, chips and trash scattered in his family room and nearby stairwell. The man said he found his granddaughter’s debit card lying on the floor. A decorative mirror had been knocked down, scratching the wall.

The man’s granddaughter said she had returned home from work around 10:30 p.m. the night before and let her dog out. When she let the dog back in, she had trouble locking the door and left it unlocked. She went to bed around 11 p.m. and did not hear any noise overnight. The next morning, she discovered $20 missing from her wallet.

The homeowner gave police a vodka bottle he claimed did not belong to him. When police dusted it for finger prints, they found nothing.
