MITT ROMNEY SIGN DEFACED AGAIN
Police were called to the 6000 block of Colo. 392 on a criminal mischief incident regarding a Mitt Romney Colorado campaign sign. The victim told police that her Romney campaign sign had been vandalized on Oct. 4 while hanging on her corral fence along 15th Street. She said the sign was cleaned after the Oct. 4 incident, but was vandalized again. She said the vandalism occurred between 7 p.m. on Oct. 26 and 7 a.m. on Oct. 27. She said the sign was valued at $130. Police observed the sign and it had a profanity spray painted in purple above Romney’s name, and a line with Xs across Romney in purple. There were also two stars painted in gold with a circle around them. Police observed two different shoe print designs in the snow in front of the sign. Police have no suspects in the case.
DOG-EAT-DOG WORLD: At 6:13 p.m. Oct. 15, police contacted a woman by phone regarding a harassment claim. The woman said she has been in an ongoing dispute with her neighbor in the 100 block of Oak Street. She said her neighbor was in his yard with a flashlight and that he was shining the light into the eyes of her dog so that he would bark. The woman claimed to have the incident recorded on a security camera for solid proof. The police told the woman that what she was describing was not a crime, but the woman said her neighbor does this so that she can call the police so she’d get a ticket for a barking dog. Police told the woman that they had not received any calls about a barking dog at her location.
BARGAIN PRICE FOR CRAB LEGS: At 4:44 p.m. Oct. 19, police were told of a solicitor complaint from a woman in the 300 block of 10th Street. She said a man contacted her at her residence, wanting to sell steaks and seafood. She said the man seemed shady and could not show any license or business brochures. Police could not locate any potential solicitors. The woman thought the man was shady because he was trying to sell her crab legs for $2.99 a pound, which she said would be an outrageously low price for crab legs.
LAUNDRY ROOM SLEEPOVER: At 4:37 a.m. Oct. 21, policed were called regarding a suspicious person in the 600 block of Chestnut Street in the Chestnut Street Apartments laundry room. The reporting party said that a male was on the floor of the laundry room possible stealing quarters. Police observed a man lying on the floor and appeared to be trying to sleep. The man told police that his girlfriend had kicked him out, and he was trying to keep warm and get some sleep. The man said he lived in Loveland, and that he used to live at the apartments and was dropped off there. The man had no identification on him, and eventually walked to his parents’ home in Windsor.
