Aspen woman’s purse, manuscript recovered

A purse that was reported stolen from an unlocked car in the Steamboat Springs Health and Recreation Center parking lot the day after Thanksgiving was found Wednesday.

An employee of the downtown post office found the purse while cleaning out a small, fenced area next to the post office, by the bridge crossing to the fitness center parking lot. The enclosure is used to house snow-melting equipment.

The post office employee found the owner’s identification card in the purse, then called her and called police.

The purse, which was reported stolen Nov. 26, included a laptop computer, a book manuscript, wallet and other personal belongings. It appears that all items listed on the initial lost-property report were recovered, Steamboat Springs police Capt. Joel Rae said. However, the owner of the purse has not yet come to the police office to confirm that.
