8:55 a.m. Steamboat Springs Police Department officers took a report online of some skis being stolen near the base of the mountain earlier this month.
8:59 a.m. Officers fielded an online report of a restaurant whose patrons were being rather loud the night before near the 2500 block of Village Drive. Officers took a report, but there is little they could do when notified the day after an incident.
10:06 a.m. Officers received the report of a dog bite near Walton Creek Road. The person had been bitten by their own dog and sought medical attention, which prompted the dog bite report.
10:54 a.m. Officers received the report of a taillight lens being stolen off a vehicle in the Upper Knoll Parking Lot. Officers took a report of the theft and the driver was adamant it had not simply fallen off.
3:29 p.m. Officers received a call from the Yampa Valley Housing Authority about fraudulent calls people had reported getting from them. People had reached out saying they received a call from someone claiming to be the housing authority. Those calls were fraudulent and are being investigated.
5:16 p.m. Officers received a report of a stolen vehicle near the 1000 block of Central Park Drive. The incident is still being investigated and the car has yet to be located.
