Park City police blotter

Moose approach Park City roads

The Park City Police Department last week received two reports of people spotting moose close to roads inside the city, including along a busy state highway.

On Wednesday, May 3, two moose were seen near the roadway along S.R. 224 at 2:58 p.m. The person who contacted the Police Department was worried the animals would attempt to cross the state highway that serves as Park City’s primary entryway.

On Monday, May 1, a driver reportedly nearly hit a moose on Iron Horse Drive at 5:49 p.m.

The Police Department regularly receives reports of moose sightings. The police typically have greater concern with cases involving moose on or close to roads.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:

On Sunday, May at 10:41 a.m., someone found a wallet on Main Street and turned it over to a business. The police were then called to retrieve the wallet.

A person was suspected to be intoxicated somewhere along Park Avenue at 2:24 a.m. Public police logs did not provide details. A little bit earlier, in an apparently unrelated case, a report involving someone acting in a disorderly manner was reported on Main Street.

On Saturday, May 6, police officers pulled over a series of drivers. Six traffic stops were reported between 6:20 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Some of the drivers were stopped on streets like S.R. 224 and Kearns Boulevard. Public police logs did not provide details about the violations that prompted the stops.

Someone reported a car alarm sounded repeatedly on King Road at 12:29 a.m. The alarm was heard every 30 minutes for two hours, the police were told.

On Friday, May 5, the police stopped at least four drivers during an approximately 40-minute stretch starting at 3:25 p.m. The drivers were pulled over on streets like Marsac Avenue and Ontario Avenue.

On Thursday, May 4 at 6:10 p.m., the police were told a vehicle, described as a “monster truck towing a dune buggy,” was seen with the engine idling for 20 minutes. The vehicle was on the 1200 block of Little Kate Road, the police were told. It was gone by the time an officer arrived.

The police at 5:13 p.m. received a complaint about a young man who was reported to be playing music on Main Street for two consecutive days. The person who contacted the police was concerned since the performer was acting, according to the person, in an aggressive manner, the police said.

Someone involved in a scavenger hunt contacted the Police Department at 4:03 p.m. asking that an officer visit a hotel so the person could take a picture as part of the hunt. The person was on the 1800 block of Sidewinder Drive.

The Police Department at 12:03 p.m. received a report that a vehicle was missing from the vicinity of the intersection of Main Street and Heber Avenue. The person parked the car approximately 90 minutes before the police were contacted. The police said a towing company did not take the vehicle. Police dispatchers asked the person to look for the vehicle again. The person refused, saying “she knows where she parked,” according to department logs. The Police Department classified the case as a citizen assist rather than a vehicle theft.

On Wednesday, May 3 at 9:11 p.m., a ball broke a window on the 1700 block of Kearns Boulevard. The ball was part of a game at Park City High School, the police were told.

On Tuesday, May 2 at 6:15 p.m., the police were called to a location along Doc Holliday Drive, where a man was reported to be attempting to sell solar panels. The police were told it appeared the man did not have a City Hall permit to do so. The Police Department indicated the case would be forwarded to the municipal government’s code enforcers.

At 12 p.m., the police were informed two cardboard boxes were found in a northbound lane of Deer Valley Drive close to the Bonanza Drive intersection. The labels indicated the boxes contained salads and were to be delivered to a Main Street restaurant. The Police Department indicated it would drop them off.

The police at 10:50 a.m. received a complaint that a man, described as homeless, was seen hanging out in an alley on or close to Kearns Boulevard. The person who contacted the police wanted someone to “have him move along,” according to the Police Department.

On Monday, May 1 at 10:15 p.m., the police received a report that a home on McHenry Avenue was broken into two weeks prior to the May 1 call. Checkbooks were taken and checks were used, the police were told. The Police Department classified the case as a suspected theft.
