Park City police blotter
Computer possibly hacked
The Park City Police Department last week received a report about a computer that may have been hacked.
The report was logged on Thursday, March 23 at 6:45 p.m. on Yonex Court. The police were told the computer was frozen with a message for the user to call a phone number regarding a “safety alert.” The person called the number since the message appeared to be tied to a legitimate business, the police were told.
The person who answered the call to the number on the screen “became aggressive,” according to the police. The person who contacted the police was worried about a scam.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, March 26, at 8:22 a.m., the police received a report that water was seen surfacing from underneath the roadway somewhere along Pinnacle Drive. The police said there was a utility issue.
The police pulled over at least four drivers starting at 1:12 a.m. and ending at 1:36 a.m. on streets like Main Street and Swede Alley. The stops were for unspecified traffic offenses.
On Saturday, March 25 at 7:19 p.m., the police were told two men were seen setting up a drone on Iron Canyon Court. They apparently had a clipboard, but it was not clear from public police logs what its purpose was. One of the men wore a black hooded sweatshirt while the other had on a hooded sweatshirt that was green. They were driving a BMW sports car, the police were told. The person who contacted the police said the situation seemed “weird,” according to the police. The Police Department said the circumstances were suspicious.

A group of people that appeared to largely represent Park City’s development and real estate industries joined family members of the late United Park City Mines President Hank Rothwell on Wednesday as a road was named in his honor. It was a tribute to a key figure in the great growth battles of the 1990s.
