Park City police blotter: Vehicles left in back of store, on sidewalk
The Park City Police Department last week received several complaints about parking problems, including cases of vehicles left in places where they apparently should not have been.
The cases included:
• on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 3:23 p.m., the police received a complaint about a car that was reported to have been left in the back of a store somewhere along Park Avenue. The vehicle was open, but no one was there, the police were told. It had been there since the morning, according to department logs. The police indicated the circumstances were suspicious.
• on Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 12:50 p.m., a vehicle was reportedly left on a sidewalk at or close to the intersection of Main Street and 9th Street. The vehicle blocked pedestrians, the police said. The driver moved the vehicle.
• on Monday, Sept. 2 at 4:20 p.m., a truck with a camper was reported to be parked on Village Way, in a location where parking was apparently prohibited. It was there the whole day and the person wanted it moved, the police said.
The Park City Police Department regularly fields complaints about parking problems, particularly during especially busy periods.
