Noisy couple draws police twice

SILVERTHORNE – A couple drew police to their duplex north of Silverthorne on successive days in separate noise incidents. The man and woman face individual charges from the events.

A deputy from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office issued Northside Circle resident Kathryn Kane a ticket for disorderly conduct Sunday, Nov. 24. According to a neighbor, Kane was yelling and pounding on the wall separating the duplex units. Kane then turned up her stereo, the neighbor said, blaring opera music and screaming along with it.

A tenant renting a room in the duplex confirmed the woman’s report about the noise next door.

When approached by the deputy, however, Kane denied the music had been excessively loud. The deputy explained he heard the loud music when he first arrived and walked up the neighbor’s driveway and that he believed Kane turned the volume down when she saw him arrive.

According to the neighbor, Kane had confronted her at about 9:30 a.m. for calling police earlier that morning.

Sheriff’s deputies and Silverthorne police officers entered the unit just after midnight, responding to reports of yelling and objects smashing against the wall.

According to a separate sheriff’s report, officers forced their way through the garage door after Reynold Thomas III failed to respond to officers knocking on the door. Officers reported Thomas had been drinking alcohol and had numerous scratches on his arms.

The officers attempted to restrain Thomas so they could search the apartment for any other occupants, but Thomas resisted them. A physical struggle ensued, and officers used pepper spray, holds and punches to subdue Thomas. Officers searched the house and found a “water bong” – and discovered Thomas had barricaded the front door with furniture.

Police arrested Thomas for disorderly conduct, obstructing justice and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also was charged with a bond violation related to an Oct. 25 arrest for obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest.

Thomas was released Monday from the Summit County Jail on a $3,000 bond.


40 ounces of road rage

DILLON – He screamed, he spit, and then he threw his beer bottle.

The alleged victim of these acts, Zachary Johnson of Dillon, called the Summit County Sheriff’s Office after suffering the effects of a reported road rage incident. Deputies are on the lookout for a white Dodge Neon with New Mexico license plates.

Johnson told deputies he was driving eastbound on Highway 6 and passed the Neon at the Summerwood neighborhood entrance. Johnson said the Neon driver became agitated, screamed profanities at him and attempted to spit on Johnson’s car.

Johnson said he pulled into the driveway of a condominium complex, and the driver of the Neon followed him. The driver got out and threw a 40-ounce Budweiser bottle at Johnson’s car.

Johnson described the white male as about 5-feet-3-inches tall, 165 pounds, with a brown jacket, black ski pants and a dark hat. Anyone with information can call the Summit County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 453-2232.
