Officers gave her a courtesy ride to a nearby hotel. 

8:12 a.m. A car was stolen at a tire shop in the 2400 block of Lincoln Avenue. The doors had been left unlocked, and the keys were in the ignition after some work had been done to it. By the time the owner arrived to pick up the vehicle, it was gone. 

9:54 a.m. Routt County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called about a dog that had bitten its owner at a residence in the 26800 block of Routt County Road 33A. The puncture wound required a visit to the hospital.

4:40 p.m. A caller reported that a speeding vehicle almost hit a family as they were crossing the street at Chinook Lane and Jackpine Court. Officers pulled over the driver, who said she was not speeding but should have been driving slower in that area.
