Crime Calls from Dec. 27-Jan. 2


Monday, Dec. 27 — Georgetown police investigated an unwitnessed death at a residence. Preliminary findings indicate the cause of death was medical in nature.

Monday, Dec. 27 — An Empire officer helped the Sheriff’s Office investigate an assault reported in the 2600 block of County Road 308.

Tuesday, Dec. 28 — An Idaho Springs officer was patrolling in the 2400 block of Miner Street and reportedly observed a vehicle displaying fictitious plates. The driver initially lied about his name to prevent the officer discovering his numerous warrants, and reportedly attempted to escape after being handcuffed. He was arrested for his warrants and additional charges.

Tuesday, Dec. 28 — The Idaho Springs police took a report of criminal mischief in the 2800 block of Riverside Drive. The reporting party said a section of fence had been cut down. Nearby residents described how people are using the void in the fence to cut the corner and avoid the stop sign there. The incident is under investigation.

Tuesday, Dec. 28 — Georgetown police responded to a report of a broken window at a residence. The damage appeared likely to be human-caused. There are no suspects.

Wednesday, Dec. 29 — Idaho Springs police responded to a protection order violation in the 1900 block of Miner Street. A woman, who’s been previously arrested for violating the order, was reportedly contacting the protected party again and accessing the property. She was arrested.

Wednesday, Dec. 29 — Georgetown police issued a municipal summons to a resident for reportedly allowing his dog to defecate regularly on a neighboring property.

Thursday, Dec. 30 — Empire police responded to damaged property and criminal mischief at the park along East Park Avenue. Someone had graffiti-sprayed the public restrooms. Because the graffiti colors and locations in the restroom building are distinct from the Dec. 20 incident at the same location, police believe these incidents have separate perpetrators. However, both investigations are ongoing.

Friday, Dec. 31 — Idaho Springs police responded to a disturbance in the 2500 block of Colorado Boulevard. Two women were arguing loudly, and were warned about disturbing their neighbors. During the conversation, officers were told a man in the residence had a restraining order against him by one of the women. He was arrested on suspicion of violating the order.
