Woman: Smoke my pot, police

AVON ” A 24-year-old woman told police to smoke her marijuana so it wouldn’t go to waste, according to an Avon Police Department report.

The woman was speeding through a school zone for Avon when an officer stopped her. The officer smelled marijuana and asked the woman if she had any in her car.

The woman didn’t know, she said, and the officer asked if she had been smoking marijuana.

The woman thought she might have smoked marijuana one hour before, she said. The officer searched the vehicle and found some marijuana in the woman’s pink bag.

The woman told police that they should smoke the marijuana rather than dispose of it because it was really good stuff.

The woman was ticketed for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and for speeding.

GYPSUM ” An off-duty sheriff’s deputy recognized a couple who weren’t supposed to be seeing each other and issued a warrant for the man’s arrest, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

The deputy was driving one morning when he saw a woman he knew from previous incidents backing her car out of the driveway. Seconds later, a man the deputy also knew drove his truck from the garage.

The deputy snapped a photo on his digital camera for evidence. From previous arrests, he thought a restraining order prevented the man from being at the woman’s home.

The next day, the deputy went to work, checked records and found the restraining order that prevented the man from having any contact with the woman. The man had violated the order twice before, the deputy found.

He wrote an arrest warrant.

AVON ” Two Denver-area men blasting music in a home were ticketed after they failed to heed a warning to lower the volume, according to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office report.

Someone complained of loud music coming from a home next door. A sheriff’s deputy responded and could hear music from outside the home when he arrived.

The deputy told the men ” who rented the home for the night ” that if someone complained of noise again, they would be ticketed.

The 21-year-old men didn’t realize the music was audible from outside, they told the deputy.

At 1 a.m., someone reported loud music. The men were ticketed for disorderly conduct.
