Summit County police blotter: deputies execute warrants at jail, in field
Arrests in Summit County generally fall under two categories; those made during the course of or shortly after the commission of an alleged crime and those executed through warrants.
From time to time Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies and local police officers will head out into the field to attempt to serve those warrants. On other occasions, people turn themselves into law enforcement at the Summit County Jail in Breckenridge. It’s also not uncommon for current inmates to find themselves rebooked on active warrants just prior to their release from jail.
Earlier this month all three of those scenarios came to fruition in Summit County, with the first taking place Monday, March 3 when a woman turned herself into law enforcement on two warrants issued Feb. 24 out of Lake County. The first was issued in relation to an alleged reckless assault causing injury, according to police records. The second was issued for possession of a controlled substance by fraud.
Both warrants featured a $2,000 bond and the woman was booked into Summit County Jail on two counts of fugitive from justice.
A day later, on Tuesday, March 4, Summit County Jail deputies conducted a warrant search on a woman already incarcerated. The search yielded three active warrants out of Garfield County.
Two of the warrants, issued Feb. 25, were in relation to separate alleged driving under the influence incidents, on which the woman failed to appear in court. On one of those two occasions, the woman was reportedly stopped for driving the wrong way down a one-way street, according to police records.
The third warrant, also issued Feb. 25, was initiated after the woman failed to appear on harassment charges. The woman was rebooked into Summit County Jail on three counts of fugitive from justice.
A 36-year-old man was preparing to be released Thursday, March 6 from Summit County Jail, but deputies first conducted a warrant search through the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s database. That search returned an active warrant issued in October 2013 out of Park County for assault, criminal mischief of less than $500 and reckless driving.
The warrant was issued with a statewide extradition order and the man was rebooked into Summit County Jail.
Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Silverthorne police officers executed Sunday, March 9 the final warrant against a man wanted on 2013 charges of third-degree assault and harassment. Law enforcement officers caught up with the man at the 7-Eleven in Silverthorne, according to records.
Deputies had attempted to serve the warrant on two prior occasions earlier in the week, according to police records. During one of those attempts, the man was located in the driveway of his Silverthorne residence, but he eluded officers by fleeing into his home and locking himself inside.
He was ultimately booked on fugitive from justice charges.
