Vail Valley police reports: Egg thrower escapes
Eagle, CO Colorado
Editor’s note: The following excerpts were taken from Eagle County law enforcement officers and police reports.
An Eagle-Vail resident on Deer Boulevard told a deputy Sept. 25 that someone had egged his house during the night.
The front and back of the house had been egged and the man didn’t know anyone who might be considered an enemy.
The man’s roommate said he was sitting at the dining room table talking to his friend about politics when he heard something hit the kitchen window. He saw it was an egg and ran outside. He saw what appeared to be a young boy dressed in black running away. The man chased the boy but he got away.
No billfold, no bye-bye
A North Carolina couple recently reported a lost wallet and obtained special paperwork from Eagle Police so they could catch their flight back home.
The couple said they purchased dinner in town two days previously and that was the last time they saw the wallet. They then went elk hunting in the Fulford area for two days before they realized the wallet – which contained both of their North Carolina driver’s licenses, bank cards, credit cards, an archery elk license and $500 in cash – was missing.
The Eagle Police Department prepared a letter for the Transportation Safety Agency so the couple could fly back to North Carolina. There have been no leads regarding the lost wallet.
Didn’t use the lock
A man told deputies his bike was stolen after he parked it in some weeds under a railroad overpass at Edwards Access Road on Sept. 23. He described the bike as a green Kona worth $400. It had a barrel-style cable lock wrapped around it as well.
Mom’s car was gone
At approximately 3:10 a.m. Sept. 20, a woman called Eagle Police to her residence along Nogal Road to report her son had taken her car without permission.
The woman said her son had arrived at her residence around 2:40 a.m. Once inside, she said her son asked to use the phone and while she was waiting for him to return, she spotted her car driving away. She noted the vehicle’s keys were sitting on the kitchen table.
The woman described the vehicle to the officer and the officer advised her that a car matching the description had just been involved in an accident on Interstate 70.
The woman told the officer she wanted to pursue charges against her son and that he was not welcome back in her house.
At 4:40 a.m. Eagle Police received a second call from the woman to report her son had returned to her house and stolen a second vehicle. Eagle Police aired a stolen vehicle alert and shortly thereafter, Avon Police spotted the vehicle traveling eastbound on Interstate 70. A felony stop was conducted at a Vail exit at approximately 5 a.m. The son was taken into custody without incident.
Eagle Police caught up with the man at the Vail Police Department, where he complained that his shoulder was hurt. According to the police report, the man admitted to being a passenger in a Ford Bronco that eluded police earlier that night, to flipping his mother’s car on I-70 and to running away from both scenes. Additionally, the police report said the man admitted to being intoxicated when all the events occurred. Eventually he was taken to the Vail hospital for examination and for a blood alcohol test.
He was cleared to be transferred to jail at approximately 7:50 a.m. and arrested on a variety of charges.
