Summit County police blotter: Woman falls from seventh floor of Breckenridge hotel


On Saturday, Sept. 19, a Breckenridge police officer spoke with a 54-year-old woman found lying on a bench inside of the lobby of DoubleTree Hotel. She was in obvious pain and thought she had damaged her pelvis or broken her back.

The woman said she was alone in her hotel room, where it was hot, so she opened a window for fresh air. The woman fell 15 feet from the seventh floor of the hotel after she tried to step out onto a ledge she thought she would be able to sit on. Unable to see in the dark, she didn’t realize there was no ledge or balcony outside of the window. Red, White & Blue Fire and Breckenridge police officers responded to the incident, where they found a small bush under the window had been smashed, and the screen of the window was broken out at the bottom and lay askew on the ground. Police did not note any indication of a disturbance or of the woman trying to hurt herself. She remained adamant that the fall was an accident. The woman was transported to the Summit Medical Center, and her family came up to visit later that day.


Police responded to two reports of missing or stolen bikes the morning of Saturday, Sept. 19. The first took place at a house on Harris Street, where a man noted his gray, 2014 Diamond Back Mason FS with a red seat valued at about $2,500 was missing from the porch. He first noticed the bike’s absence at 8:30 a.m.

Police responded to report of another theft just minutes later, at 9:14 a.m. on French Street. The victim said that his 2003 Cannondale Scaipel, valued at $1,600, was stolen off the back of his vehicle parked in the parking lot. He said the bike was locked into the rack and had been cut off. No suspect has yet been found.

GOing to DETOX

Around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 20, Breckenridge police responded to reports of a 21-year-old man knocking on the door of the Blue Stag Saloon, asking to be taken to detox. When approached by an officer, he said he couldn’t go home because he didn’t feel safe with his roommate and wanted police to take him to detox. The officer noticed the man was heavily intoxicated and asked him to take a voluntary breath test. After the man blew a .306, he was taken to the emergency room.


Breckenridge Police responded to a report of a cold hit-and-run the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 20. A security officer with Beaver Run Resort called in the incident after a woman noted a large 12-16 inch scratch on her Audi Hatchback. She had previously taken a photo of another car that had parked very close to hers. The owner of the vehicle was contacted and said he did not hit the vehicle and later moved from the no-parking zone. His front bumper was duct taped, and the owner of the car said he it had been damaged in multiple incidents.
