It’s worth approximately $1,250. The rental coordinator for RSC said the compacter was rented to a job site in Frisco on Nov. 29 and was supposed to be picked up Dec. 1. The coordinator said there was some confusion about the pickup date and when his driver arrived to get the compacter on Dec. 6, it was gone.The superintendent at the construction site said the compacter was last seen Dec. 5.A Breckenridge resident also reported that he had about $400 in tools stolen from the entryway of his townhome. The power drill, jig saw and miscellaneous tools were last seen by the owner on Nov. 30, but he didn’t notice they were gone until Dec. 14.The owner said the boiler room and meters are located inside his entryway and that his door could have been unlocked, although he usually keeps it secure.Over Labor Day weekend, there was a string of thefts at construction sites all over Summit County, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in lost equipment.Those cases are still under investigation, and no arrests have been made.CSP responds to several rollover accidents WednesdayThe Colorado State Patrol (CSP) responded to five rollover accidents on Interstate 70 on Wednesday.At about 5 p.m., four students from Mesa State College in Grand Junction were taken to Summit Medical Center after a rollover accident near milepost 195.According to CSP trooper Lloyd Smith, the driver was traveling too fast for conditions, lost control, slid 200 feet down the highway, before slamming into a hard bank of ice and rolling over. All four people were transported to the hospital.Earlier in the morning, there were two separate rollover accidents on the west side of the Eisenhower Tunnel. Smith said both people were given tickets for driving too fast for conditions and one driver was ticketed for reckless driving.The other two rollovers Wednesday were at Officer’s Gulch near milepost 198. Smith said he and another trooper had to set up a rolling roadblock to allow the tow truck time to clear one of the vehicles from the highway.Both drivers received tickets for traveling too fast.A rolling roadblock is an alternative to closing the highway, when troopers drive slowly with their lights on and don’t allow any cars to pass them.Smith urged drivers to slow down during icy conditions.Pursuit ends with arrestColorado State Patrol Trooper Lloyd Smith arrested 20-year-old Kyle Faulhaber for speeding and reckless driving after clocking him driving over 100 miles per hour on Interstate 70 on Tuesday.Smith attempted to pull over the Audi Turbo near milepost 211, and followed Faulhaber at speeds of up to 110 mph until milepost 203 near the Frisco roundabout.Faulhaber had nine tickets on his record and had recently received his driver’s license back following a suspension.When a person is traveling 25 mph over the speed limit, the trooper has the option to arrest the driver, usually in the interest of public safety.
