‘Burglary’ turns out to be false alarm

Steamboat Today staff

— What was first believed to be a burglary in progress turned out to be one employee’s way to get his paycheck from Dobell Contracting Company in Elk River Plaza.
Neighbors in the area had their eyes on two men who climbed through a window at the business Tuesday at about 7:40 p.m., and the neighbors called the police.
A number of units were called to enclose the area just in case the “suspects” attempted to escape from the scene.
After some surveillance, police found out that the men were employees of Dobell who needed to enter the building but forgot their keys.
Police called Dobell Contracting personnel to confirm the story, and no arrests were made.
