Police Beat: Feb. 19, 2009

Thursday, Feb. 12
Police responded to the area of Sixth St. Court and Bunyan Ave. to check on the welfare of a tan Corgie chained up at a residence. The caller said the dog is always chained up at this location and has no shelter or way to get out of the snow. The officer determined that the chain was long enough to allow the animal to get out of the snow and that it was able to go inside at night.

A short time later another caller also reported a small Chihuahua running northbound in the same area. The dispatch report says only that the officer handled it.

After going to the dogs, the police spent the rest of the evening making traffic stops, issuing four verbal warnings, one written warning and finding one driver whose license had been suspended.

Friday the 13th was relatively quiet with only three traffic stops, two suspicious circumstances and two animal calls. The drivers got off easily with warnings and officers responded within two minutes of an alarm at High Country Classics where they learned that a suspicious male had been sneaking around one of the trailers in the lot, but took off running when spotted and jumped into a waiting small blue SUV which sped away.

The thirteenth was apparently unlucky for a Canadian Goose taken into custody on Sioux Drive, after being found injured. It was remanded to the Larimer County Humane Society for treatment.

Saturday, Feb. 14

Police began Valentine’s Day at 4:37 a.m. with an abandoned vehicle investigation in the 300 block of E Nebraska Ave. and ended the daily report with a DUI arrest at 11:46 p.m. at E County Road 8 and Pyramid Peak Blvd. In between, there were three non-injury motor vehicle accidents. Two of those incidents occured in the Hays Market parking lot within 40 minutes of each other. One was reported at 5:23 p.m., the next at 6:02 p.m. No reports of the accidents were available.

Sunday, Feb. 15
Only five calls were reported on Sunday. Police responded to a burglar alarm at the post office at 1:14 p.m., and dealt with reported drugs in Berthoud Town Park at 1:33 p.m. However, it was just some kids playing basketball and no drugs were involved. Next the officer engaged in an assist and a follow up at the police station at 2:08 p.m. The next and last entry of the day was a traffic stop 10:30 p.m.

Monday, Feb. 16

Another vehicle break-in on Redwood Cir. was reported at 8 a.m. No details were provided on a DUI arrest at E. County Road 8 and Pyramid Peak at 8:07 p.m. or the belated hit and run report at 9:15 p.m. Police also found some open doors or windows at the Main Street Car Care and finished off the day’s activities with a traffic stop on Highway 287.
