A police officer on foot in the parking lot of a Silverthorne business came across a woman with “100-200 bees swarming her car.”

The woman said she drove it there and had no issues with the bees. When she went to leave, “hundreds of bees were in and around her car,” the officer reported, and she drove away with the bees still inside and “swarming her head.”

“That was an interesting one,” the officer’s report concludes.

Unconvincing cover-up

A man who was renting out an apartment through Airbnb contacted Breckenridge police earlier this month to report a possible burglary.

The man said that a renter had checked out of the unit but sent him a text message saying that while he was out to dinner, someone had broken the sliding glass window with a patio chair and stolen $1,500 cash from the man’s luggage.

Inside the unit, a police officer observed glass shards on the floor and broken furniture on the balcony, which was on the second floor of the building. There was no way to access the patio from ground level, the officer noted.

The officer confirmed that no one had called in a report of burglary during the time period the renter said it had occurred. There were also valuable items throughout the apartment that were undisturbed.

The officer left the scene and unsuccessfully attempted to call the renter. Later, she called the man who reported the incident. He said he had found blood on the bed sheets after pulling back the comforter to clean them as well as a bloodied towel in the bathroom.

The case was filed inactive pending further developments.

Pantless passenger prowls streets

The Silverthorne Police Department reports that earlier this month a man was giving an intoxicated woman a ride home. The man said the she suddenly started taking off her clothes.

The man pulled over and asked the woman to get out of his car. He then called the police and reported the direction the woman started walking away in.

Officers located the woman walking around with no pants on. She was transported to detox to sober up.

Perilous booze delivery

On Friday, May 5, a Breckenridge police officer was dispatched to a report of an animal bite. The victim said the incident occurred while he was delivering alcohol to a client at the client’s home.

The victim told the officer that as he approached the door to leave the delivery outside, the client opened the door and a small dog came out and “latched onto” his leg.

The man told the client that her dog had bitten him, but she didn’t address that concern and instead told him that he had brought the wrong type of alcohol.

The man was “confused,” and went to go get the right alcohol. When he returned, he left it on the ground further from the door and called the client to let her know it was delivered.

The client asked the man to bring the alcohol closer, but he said, “No, your dog bit me.” The client then grew agitated, saying the dog hadn’t bitten him and yelling at the man to get off her property.

The man left and sat in his car, and the client called the man’s boss to complain that he was “still near the house after the delivery.” She threatened to call the police.

Around that time, the man called dispatch to report the bite but declined medical attention.

The case was flagged for follow-up.
