Pilot & Today Staff

High-end beauty products, jewelry and merchandise worth $2,000 to $3,000 were stolen from the Waterside Day Spa and Salon in a burglary Tuesday night.

Steamboat Springs Police Capt. Joel Rae reported that the thief or thieves apparently entered through an unlocked front door between 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. Wednesday. Rae said the door apparently was accidentally left unlocked by an employee.

“We are grateful; it could have been a lot worse,” owner Anne Duckels said.

Workers at the store reported that the registers and equipment were not damaged and that burglars stole the merchandise from the front of the store.

Police ask that anyone with information contact them at 879-1144 or Crime Stoppers at 879-6226. The spa will offer a reward for information that leads to the return of the merchandise.

Michael Arce, president of IAFF Local 4472, said Wednesday that Steamboat’s 20 or so full-time firefighters are backing the District 2 candidate because they were impressed with Reisman’s “views on the issues and public safety in particular.”

The firefighters recently met with Reisman to discuss his candidacy. The union has not met with Reisman’s opponent, Ken Solomon.

“I am honored to have the endorsement and support of the Steamboat firefighters,” Reisman said. “I believe that it is critical to ensure that our public safety officials – firefighters, police officers, EMTs – have the resources they need to ensure their safety and enable them to continue to provide our families, our children, our community, with the highest levels of support.”
