Officers respond to false alarms in Deer Valley
The Park City Police Department last weekend twice responded to alarms sounding in the Deer Valley area, but it appears both were false.
On Sunday, Oct. 19 at 9 a.m., the police received a report of an alarm sounding in the Snow Park area. The police were requested to create a perimeter around the building, but a staffer at the alarm company soon cancelled the call. The Police Department indicated a worker in the building erroneously triggered the alarm.
Earlier that morning, at 6:52 a.m., the police were called to Golden Eagle Drive, where an alarm sounded at a residence. The Police Department responded, but public police logs do not provide details. The logs, however, indicated the police were requested to create a perimeter around the residence.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, Oct. 19 at 3:05 a.m., the police handled a drunken-driving case on the 500 block of Main Street. Public police logs do not provide details, and it is unclear whether officers arrested the person.
