Law and Order: Mischievous football players, late-night stinky vials and unwanted ex-employee
September 10, 2012
At 6:11 p.m. on Aug. 24, police were called to the 1500 block of Main Street on a report of suspicious activity. When police arrived, an employee at Subway said a Windsor High School football player stole a soda machine key from the business and it was on videotape. The employee said it would cost about $200 to replace the key. Police viewed the tape and saw four football players standing around the machine, and it looked like they were doing something to the machine. Police called the maintenance man who was working on the machine to make sure he didn’t take the key. He said he had taken the key because he saw the players messing with it. No theft.

SOMETHING SMELLS At 9 a.m. on Aug. 26, police responded to the 7100 block of Royal Country Downs on a report of suspicious activity. When police arrived, a man told police that someone rang his doorbell at 1:30 a.m. and again at 2:15 a.m. He looked out the windows but did not see anyone. The next morning when he went out the front door, he found a small vial that said “Caution: Irritant” on it. The vial contained ammonium sulfide, which can be used as a stink bomb but is not dangerous. Police threw the vial away.

LONG ARM OF THE LAW WATCHING YOU At 6:37 p.m. on Aug. 24, police were called to an unnamed location* on a report of a juvenile problem. When police arrived, a woman said her two 12-year-old sons were out of control. She said they were upset with her and were destroying her house. She said they pulled a door off the hinges and put a hole in the wall. Police spoke with the boys and asked if they would like to go to a foster care home in Greeley or another city. They said no. Police told them their behavior is not tolerated. The officer told the boys he was working all weekend, and they agreed to improve their behavior. *Note: Windsor Now! chose not to name the location of the call to protect the identity of the children.
