End of report.
On Feb. 15, about 11:55 a.m., a deputy responded to a call of theft in the 5400 block of Grand Fir Way. The deputy met with the reporting party, who said:
Sometime during the night of Feb. 14, several items were stolen from his construction site.
The home at the address is still under construction and does not have any doors or windows installed yet; there is only the frame.
The items taken were located in the area that will be the basement of the home.
Those items were a propane heater, two propane bottles, extension cords, a ladder and a large box of nails.
There were two sets of shoe prints in the cement of the basement that he did not believe belonged to any of the workers on site.
He was told by a resident of a neighboring home on Grand Fir Way that a white truck was seen leaving the address about 7 p.m. on Feb. 14.
The white truck had a license plate beginning with 441.
He did not have any descriptions of any occupants of the suspect truck.
There should have been no one at the job site on Feb. 14 at 7 p.m.
He does not know who would have done this.
The deputy took pictures of the shoe prints that the reporting party believed to be suspect and turned them in to the crime lab.
There was no one home at the neighboring residence on Grand Fir Way.
The deputy returned to the neighboring home on Grand Fir Way on Feb. 15 at 2:30 p.m. and spoke to the homeowner who said:
The builder must have been mistaken. He had not seen a suspicious white truck nor was he aware anything was taken from the construction site.
He would keep an eye on the residence and report anything suspicious.
The deputy attempted to make contact with the residents at the house directly across from the construction site but no one was home. The deputy also tried another home on Grand Fir Way and learned it was unoccupied.
The deputy sent this report to dispatch, to have the propane heater entered into Colorado’s crime database.
No further leads or suspects. End of report.
On Feb. 18 a deputy responded to a report of a theft of a license plate. The deputy met with the reporting party who said the following:
She lives at the 11700 block of Meadow Ridge Lane in Parker.
Last night she was in downtown Denver as well as Douglas County.
She parked her car in the apartment complex parking lot.
This morning she drove to work.
She noticed her front plate was missing from her car when she got to work.
Her bumper was also slightly bent downward.
She had her plate secured onto the bumper with two large bolts.
It is possible it was taken in Denver, but also possible it was taken at her apartment complex.
She is pretty sure that it was on her car last night.
At this time there are no suspects or leads. The license plate was entered into Colorado’s crime database.
The reporting party has a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office business card with the case number and is removing her rear plate until she can get to the DMV to get new plates.
Assault in progress, Castle Pines
On Feb. 18, at 6:56 p.m., a deputy was dispatched to an assault in progress call at the 6900 block of Hampton Court in the city of Castle Pines.
When the deputy arrived on scene he spoke with the reporting party who said the following:
She was at a garage sale at the 6900 block of Hampton Court earlier today.
She bought numerous items and thought she had forgotten to grab the radio that she had purchased at the garage sale.
She went back to the house at around 6:40 p.m., and asked if she could get the radio that she had forgotten when she left the garage sale.
She spoke with the homeowner.
The homeowner told her that she had never paid for the radio.
The reporting party insisted that she did in fact buy the radio and asked for her money back.
The homeowner told her to get off her (expletive) porch and started to slam the front glass door shut.
The reporting party threw her arm into the glass door jamb to prevent the door from being shut because she wasn't done talking with homeowner.
The homeowner then punched her in the face and started pushing her against the ground.
The reporting party then left the porch and called the police while she was waiting in her van in front of the house.
The reporting party had a bloody left ear and a bloody lip. There was no sign of any struggle occurring on the front porch like the reporting party reported. The snow on the porch was undisturbed and all of the porch fixtures appeared to be in the proper place.
The deputy spoke with the homeowner, and she said the following:
She had a garage sale at the house because her family was going to be moving soon.
Around 6:40 p.m., a lady (previously identified as the reporting party) came by the house and asked if they had a garage sale earlier in the day.
She told the reporting party that she did in fact have a garage sale earlier in the day.
The reporting party told her that she had bought a radio and forgot to grab it after she had bought it.
The homeowner told her that she had asked about the radio, but she had never paid the ten dollars for the radio.
The reporting party said that wasn't right and she wanted the radio because she had already paid for it.
The homeowner told her that she hadn't paid for the radio.
The reporting party insisted that she had paid for it.
The homeowner offered to give her $20 back if she brought back all the other items she bought.
The reporting party said she wanted her ten dollars back for the radio.
The homeowner told her to leave and started to shut the front glass door on the reporting party.
The reporting party then grabbed the door handle to the glass door and pulled it back open.
The homeowner pushed the reporting party back from the door and told her to leave.
The reporting party then lowered herself to the ground and started thrashing and screaming on the ground.
The homeowner offered to help her up and the reporting party refused her help and told her that she was calling the cops.
The reporting party then got up and walked to her van, while she was on the phone with 911.
The homeowner believes that the reporting party’s real reason for coming over was to try and start trouble.
There were no markings on the homeowner’s person or on her clothing which would have indicated that she had been in a physical struggle with the reporting party.
The deputy spoke with two additional witnesses and they shared the same story that the homeowner had shared.
After speaking with both parties the deputy determined that the reporting party unlawfully remained on the premise of another after being told multiple times to leave the homeowner’s premises.
The reporting party was taken into custody for Third Degree Criminal Trespassing and was transported to the Douglas County Detention Center without any further incident.
The homeowner was called on Feb. 18 at 10:25 p.m. and she said the following:
She told the reporting party to leave their house two times.
She shut the front glass door and was closing the solid wooden door when the reporting party pulled open the front glass door.
When she pulled open the door she took one to two steps toward the inside of the house.
The homeowner pushed the reporting party’s face with one hand, forcing her out the door’s threshold back outside onto the front porch.
The homeowner initiated the push while she was still inside her home.
The homeowner felt “invaded” when the reporting party opened the front glass door.
The homeowner thought that the reporting party wanted to keep arguing about the $10 and the radio in front of her kids.
The homeowner’s daughter was screaming at the top of the stairs and later told the homeowner that the lady at the door had scared her.
Nothing further at this time.
