>Man allegedly pulled knife in fight near Keystone
A man was arrested for criminal trespassing after authorities were called to break up a fight at a Keystone employee-housing unit.
The man allegedly got into a physical fight with another man over “rolling a skateboard down the hallway,” according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. He was accused of pulling out a knife during the fight, but the alleged victim told deputies he did not want to press charges.
Authorities did find a knife that matched the second man’s description in the suspect’s possession.
Keystone emergency services said the accused man was not supposed to be on Keystone property due to a prior offense. He was arrested and booked at the Summit County Jail for second-degree criminal trespass.
>Hooch discovered at county jail
Deputies at the Summit County Detentions Facility confiscated a bag of what was suspected to be homemade alcohol last month.
The alcohol was a homemade brew known in correctional-facility slang as “hooch.”
A deputy discovered the contraband hidden behind the headrest part of an inmate’s bed after smelling a strong odor in the cell.
The alcohol was in a small bag with liquid and what appeared to be fermenting fruit, according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
The bag was confiscated and destroyed.
>Local teen found with stolen wallet
A teen was charged with theft and first-degree criminal trespass after his parents found a wallet in his bedroom that had been stolen from a neighbor’s car.
The wallet was reported missing a month before, in May, after the owner left it in his car with the doors unlocked, according to a sheriff’s office report.
The wallet, valued at $25, reportedly held a $100 bill and a few credit cards.
The wallet was returned to him containing everything but the $100 bill. The owner reportedly confronted his 18-year-old neighbor about the alleged theft, who did not deny stealing the wallet, according to the report.
The teen’s parents asked the neighbor to press charges saying he should be held accountable for his actions, according to the report.
>Assault suspect arrested in Summit County
A man wanted on charges of threatening a public official out of Illinois and fraud and assault charges out of Park County was arrested in Silverthorne June 26.
The man gave local authorities permission to enter his house after the arrest, where they found two unauthorized handguns, according to a report from the Summit County sheriff’s office.
The man’s criminal record included several felony arrests, the report stated.
>Man arrested for injuring girlfriend
Silverthorne Police arrested a man from the Philippines in May after he reportedly injured his girlfriend by grabbing her face.
The police responded to a call of a fight at the Summit Place bus stop. Upon arriving on scene both the man and the woman, who are both from the Philippines and currently in the U.S. on work visas with a local resort, told them the same story.
The man reportedly grabbed the woman by her face, scratching her neck and face, and screamed at her, according to a report from the Silverthorne Police Department.
The man was arrested and charged with domestic violence and harassment. On the way to the jail the man told officers he didn’t know it was illegal in the United States to grab his girlfriend and yell at her, the report stated.
>Missing woman recovered
A woman who was separated from her group of friends June 26 and later reported missing was discovered the following morning.
The group was returning home from a bar in Breckenridge, when the woman, who had proceeded ahead of her friends, lost sight of them, according to a report from the Breckenridge Police Department.
She was reportedly highly intoxicated and did not have her cellphone. She was not from the area and had never been in Colorado before.
Officers searched the town, retracing the group’s steps from the bar and had requested a search dog early the following morning when the woman was found.
She had reportedly passed out on the side of the road. A local man and woman had found her there and allowed her to spend the night on their couch, according to the report.
