Park City police blotter
Prowler seen around residence
April 18, 2017
The Park City Police Department last week received at least two reports, apparently unrelated, about people who might have been prowling around a residence or broken into a home.
The two cases were reported on different days and in different neighborhoods. Both of them involved different sets of circumstances, according to police logs.
On Friday, April 14, the police at 2:09 p.m. received a report from someone claiming to have video footage of a person described as a prowler around a residence. The police were told the person was seen in the footage looking onto windows and attempting to open doors. The case was reported on Aspen Springs Drive. The Police Department said the circumstances were suspicious.
On Tuesday, April 11 at 10:11 p.m., meanwhile, the police received a complaint from someone at a Park City residence that a person may have been inside the home that night. The bedroom and bathroom lights were on even though the person said they are always turned off at that time, the police were told. The Police Department classified the case, reported in Prospector, as a suspected burglary.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, April 16 at 8:24 a.m., the police received a report of someone finding a trail of droplets that appeared to be blood in the vicinity of the Iron Horse district. The droplets led from a door, to stair and then to a sidewalk, the police were told. The Police Department indicated the circumstances were suspicious.
