Police receive string of complaints about missing skis
March 15, 2011
The Park City Police Department last week received a string of complaints about missing skis, with some of the people telling the police the equipment had been stolen.
Some of the cases reported to the police included:
Ski and snowboard thefts are regularly reported to the Police Department, and Park City has been crowded with spring-break skiers and snowboarders. The police and resorts recommend people store their equipment with valets while taking a break on the slopes. They also suggest people use lockers.
The police say sometimes the cases are mistaken identity. In other instances, though, thieves either want the equipment for themselves or they take the equipment and then put them up for sale on the black market.
People with information about the cases may call the Police Department at 615-5500 or the department’s anonymous-tip line, 615-5847.
