Two roommates involved in a fight Sept. 8 are now facing assault charges.
The roommates reportedly got into a disagreement during a party. One roommate asked the other to move out of the residence, and he agreed.
The argument became physical over the deposit for the residence. One of the men reportedly punched the other, who fought back, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
Both men sustained physical injuries from the fight, and both declined medical assistance.
The roommates were summonsed for third-degree assault for causing injuries to one another.
Officers with the Frisco Police Department were able to recover a stolen vehicle Sept. 17 after the Toyota Land Cruiser was found backed into a no parking zone.
The window of the car had been left open and the interior was wet due to heavy rain, according to a Frisco police report.
The car was reported missing Sept. 11, the report stated. The car was unlocked and the keys were inside the vehicle at the time it was stolen.
The owner told officers he was suspicious the vehicle theft might be related to a dispute he’d had the day before his truck was stolen with a local towing company.
The case was deactivated due to a lack of “leads or suspect information,” according to the police report.
A Breckenridge man reported two weapons, acquired with the purchase of his house from the previous owners, stolen Aug. 29.
The man told Breck officers he believed someone entered the house sometime between Aug. 15 and Aug 26 and took the Browning rifle and shot gun, which were left in an inconspicuous location in the garage, according to a police report.
The guns were valued at $1,000 each.
The victim told officers he did not believe the previous owners of the house had returned to pick up the guns, stating he thought they would have contacted him before doing so, according to the report.
The owner described the guns as collectibles, bearing gold script, the report stated.
A local man had his wallet returned to him after a Breckenridge business owner found it in the parking lot of his store, but it was short $300 by the time he got it back, according to a report from Breck police.
The man told officers he believed he lost the wallet when he fell off his bike while riding home from a bar, according to the report. He noticed it was missing the following morning.
He said he had not been in the area of the store where the wallet was found, however.
The store did not have any outdoor surveillance cameras.
The case is listed inactive “due to a lack of leads and information,” the report stated.
Two suspects were arrested in Silverthorne Aug. 29 after officers responded to the area of Fourth Street and Brian Avenue on a report of fired shots in the area.
Authorities located the suspects in a nearby house, according to a Silverthorne police report submitted to the town council.
Authorities reportedly obtained a search warrant to search the house for the weapon used and discovered items which, “substantiated our belief these suspects were also related to multiple burglaries within Summit County,” the report stated.
The suspects were held at the Summit County jail on $25,000 bond according to the police report.
