Park City police receive another string of complaints about stolen skis
March 6, 2012
The Park City Police Department last week received another series of complaints about skis or snowboards being stolen, continuing a string that has stretched a month.
Some of the cases reported last week included:
The cases followed earlier reports that started in early February. At least eight cases were reported between Feb. 2 and Feb. 25. The mountain resorts recommend people secure their skis in lockers or check-in locations.
The police have long said some reports involving stolen skis end up being misplaced skis rather than stolen ones.
The Police Department offers a ski-registration system meant to increase the chances that skis and snowboards are returned to their owners if they are stolen and later recovered. The registration form is available on City Hall’s website, http://www.parkcity.org. Select the "I Want To . . ." dropdown menu at the top of the page. Then select the "Register my Skis/Snowboard (Equipment)."
