Breckenridge police were dispatched to an incident on Main Street, where officers discovered a couple standing in front of La Cima Mall around 1:30 a.m. The man who had called dispatch was wearing a sweatshirt with a ripped sleeve.

As the man spoke with the officer, the woman began to walk away. The man explained he wanted his “now ex-girlfriend” to leave him alone, so he called dispatch. He said she had punched him in the neck and ripped his sleeve. The officer did not see any marks on his neck.

The woman reappeared on the balcony above and asked the man to leave twice, while the officer instructed her to come down and tell her side of the story. She began to walk away, then sprinted across the Tonopah Lot as another officer followed her.

The woman ran across the lot, up a set of stairs and into an alley that made a dead-end with a large snow pile. As she began to climb up the snow, the officer shouted for her to stop, and approach with her hands on top of her head.

When the officer asked why she ran, the woman first said she didn’t hear him, and then said she was afraid but had done nothing wrong. She denied hitting the man or ripping his shirt.

The officers spoke with the man over the phone, who repeated his previous statement, adding that he had not felt any pain when he was punched in the neck nor felt threatened. Over the phone, he said he did not want to press charges. When asked, he said he would not meet the officer face to face and hung up.


The morning of Nov. 22, Breckenridge police were dispatched to East Adams Ave, finding traffic cones and debris littering half of the block. An officer said the scene appeared as if “someone had gone on a path of wanton destruction,” with various items knocked over and thrown in the road.

The officer also noticed a shadow box ripped from signpost in front of Le Petit Paris, with the electrical cable powering the light also broken. The glass front of the shadow box was knocked off and items inside were also broken, with the cost of the damage estimated at $200. The officer did not see any individuals near the scene, or any trace of footprints.


The owner of YoYoLoco called Breckenridge police just before 12 p.m. on Nov. 22, when he noticed a window to his business had been broken through. The owner checked the cash register before calling, and noted no money was missing. He also did not notice anything missing from his store, though one box appeared to be out of place.

The owner told an officer that no one could have left through the door, as both deadbolts had been locked. He said he had left at 6 p.m. the day before and arrived just before 12 p.m. the following day.

The officer noted there was broken glass all over the interior of the store. Just outside of the window, there were footprints in the snow, as well as what appeared to be a broken flowerpot sitting just beneath the window. The cost of the damage was estimated at $1,000.


A woman called police reporting one of her license plates had been stolen on Nov. 19. Her car had been parked just outside of the Blue Stag Saloon.

The woman’s New York front license plate was completely missing, and her back license plate was bent at the corners as if someone had tried to remove it. There was also some damage to her side mirrors.

The woman said she had noticed the damage at 11 a.m. that morning, having last seen her car at 11 p.m. the previous night with no noticeable damage. She said she was not aware of anyone who would have a motive to damage her car.
