Park City police blotter
Possible homeless camp seen
The Park City Police Department last week received at least two reports involving people who might have been camping in the city, including one who may have been homeless.
On Wednesday, March 29, someone contacted the police at 1:13 p.m. reporting there was what appeared to be a homeless camp off Sidewinder Drive. The camp was in the vicinity of the nearby Rail Trail, the police were told. Public police logs did not provide details.
Earlier that day, at 12:05 a.m., the police received a report that a school bus, described as “questionable,” was seen parked in a lot on Munchkin Road. The police were told someone might be camping in the bus. The Police Department said the circumstances were suspicious.
Camping in the Park City limits is prohibited. The Police Department occasionally receives similar reports to those logged last week, though.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Saturday, April 1, the police received three complaints from someone about loud music, particularly the bass sound, coming from a Main Street nightclub. The police logged the case as disturbing the peace.
At 12:14 a.m., someone contacted the police reporting that property was stolen from a room. The police said officers determined the person was “highly intoxicated” and found the property reported as stolen in the person’s apartment. The police arrested the man on an intoxication charge.
On Friday, March 31, the police received a report that someone was throwing water balloons targeting vehicles driving on Park Avenue. The police were unable to locate the people throwing the water balloons.

A City Hall transit supervisor at 11:45 a.m. contacted the police about the restriping of a section of street at the intersection of Park Avenue and Heber Avenue for a construction site. The police were told the road was restricted to one lane as a result of delivery trucks at the location.
