Douglas County Sheriff’s briefs
Vehicle tresspasses continue
Four vehicle trespasses were reported in Douglas County between the dates of Aug. 5 and Aug. 7. Two of the incidents occurred in Highlands Ranch, on the 10000 block of Silver Maple Circle and the 2600 block of E. County Line Road. In both incidents backpacks were stolen from the cars, one of which possessed a laptop computer. There were no signs of forced entry in the Silver Maple incident, but a passenger window was broken in the E. County Line Road incident.
A resident on the 16100 block of Blue Bonnet Drive in Parker accidentally left their garage door open overnight on Aug. 5, and both vehicles — which had the keys left inside them — were rummaged through and credit cards, cash and a $1,200 Nikon camera were missing the following morning. The victim said he felt lucky the cars were not stolen as well.
In the fourth vehicle trespass, a customer at the Western Convenience Store at 800 S. Wilcox St. in Castle Rock left his car unlocked while he went inside to buy a cup of coffee around 7:15 p.m. Aug. 7. When he returned he was missing a $100 laptop bag and a $600 laptop computer. There is no camera on the parking lot and no suspect information was available.
Missing rings an issue
Two recent moves in Douglas County resulted in missing rings. In one incident a woman who moved into Wind Crest Retirement Community in Highlands Ranch with the help of a moving company, noticed that three of her rings were missing from a box after she got settled. When she called the moving company, they said they would not help her with her claims of missing rings, but would replace the furniture they damaged in the move. The victim has since filed an insurance claim, and created a report with the sheriff’s office on Aug. 6.
Another woman, who moved from Castle Rock to the 1200 block of Hoosier Drive in Larkspur this summer, filed a report on Aug. 7 after $1,350 of gold necklaces and a bracelet turned up missing within a week of her move.
Castle Pines home egged ... again
A home on the 200 block of Huntley Court in Castle Pines has been egged twice in a matter of weeks. The victim reported the second incident to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office after about five eggs were thrown at the side of his home, damaging a screen around 11 p.m. Aug. 6 and startling his wife.
The house was also hit on July 27 around midnight when seven eggs were thrown at a front window, breaking another screen. The victim is unsure who would be doing this, but said the car peeling out after the incidents had a “low-sounding muffler.”
