Summit County Police Blotter: Breckenridge business owner's aim on the money

Camper caught with prescription drugs

Authorities found several prescription pills in the possession of a woman found camping illegally near the Meadow Creek Trail Dec. 2.

The drugs, two pills contained in a clear plastic bag, were identified as the stimulant Adderall, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff's Office. There was another pill in the bag which deputies were unable to identify.

The woman was transported to the jail, where she reportedly told authorities she'd had a prescription for Adderall but it had run out in the summer of 2011, according to the report.

She would not say where she'd gotten the pills, the report stated.

The woman was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

SCSO: Mom cuffed for interfering with son's arrest

A woman found herself in custody Dec. 4 after she allegedly attempted to stop sheriff's office deputies from arresting a man she said was her son.

Deputies were reportedly arresting the man after finding him in physical contact with a woman who had a restraining order against him, according to a sheriff's office report.

As they were placing him into custody, the deputies were reportedly approached by a vehicle, which parked nearby. The woman got out of the car and allegedly walked toward where deputies were executing the arrest, ignoring several orders to get back in her car, the report stated.

The woman reportedly said, "that's my son," before "attempting to physically push past" the deputy with both arms against his chest to get to the man being arrested, the report stated.

The deputy reportedly grabbed her right hand, put it behind her back and put the woman in handcuffs, according to the report.

The woman was booked on charges of obstructing a peace officer.

SCSO: Fast draw withdraw

An ATM authorities initially thought might have been stolen was used for target practice at the shooting range in Dillon Dec. 4.

The automatic teller machine had been so badly damaged by gunfire, it took deputies several attempts to identify it. Ultimately, an orange post-it left inside the machine revealed it belonged to a Breckenridge business, according to a sheriff's office report.

When authorities contacted the owner, he explained the business had recently purchased a new ATM and stated he'd taken the old one to the shooting range to use as a target, the report stated. He said he'd then left it there for others to use.

Shooting range regulations prohibit the use of anything as a target, except for paper, cardboard or reusable targets specifically manufactured for shooting. They also prohibit littering.

The owner of the ATM was issued a $50 ticket for violating the rules.
