Park City Police Blotter
November 29, 2017
The Park City Police Department on Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 9:58 p.m., received a report from someone on Fairway Village Drive describing noises that sounded like they could have been gunshots.
The noises may have emanated from a location toward Park City High School, the police were told. The Police Department said the circumstances were suspicious.
The department occasionally receives reports of gunshot-like sounds. Some of the cases are determined to be hunters shooting near neighborhoods. Firing a weapon is prohibited in the Park City limits.
Fairway Village Drive is located toward the edge of Park Meadows and close to wildlife-rich open space.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, Nov. 26 at 8:35 a.m., the police received a report that two BMX-style bicycles were left in a pedestrian-bicyclist tunnel along Kearns Boulevard close to the Comstock Drive intersection.
