Sunday, March 1, 2020

1:46 a.m. Steamboat Springs Police Department officers were called by someone who observed an intoxicated man attempting to get into a vehicle at Oak and Sixth streets. The officer was able to make contact with the man before he drove anywhere and gave him a ride home.

1:56 a.m. Colorado State Patrol troopers arrested a man on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding more than 20 mph over the limit and having both an open alcohol container and an open marijuana container inside the vehicle.

3:06 a.m. Police responded to a call regarding a group of people causing a disturbance in a hotel lobby in the 1000 block of Walton Creek Road. The group wanted to leave, and so they did.  

11 a.m. Officers were called to the 2100 block of Resort Drive when a disagreement started after one person bumped the car door of the vehicle parked next to them. One person asked the other if they wanted to fight. They both left.

12:36 p.m. Police were called to the report of a theft at a business in the 100 block of Lincoln Avenue. The man said his locker had been broken into, and the contents stolen. Officers were able to help him find that his stuff was actually in a different locker.

4:24 p.m. Officers responded to a call about a man who had been asked to leave a grocery store in the 1800 block of Central Park Drive. He was refusing to do so, so police issued a trespass warning.
