Park City police blotter
Problems reported at car wash
The Park City Police Department last week responded to two cases involving reports of problems at a car wash.
On Sunday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m., a taxi reportedly became stuck in a carwash in Park City. The carwash doors were apparently closed, according to police logs.
Earlier in the week, at 4:23 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23, the police were called to a car wash after someone reportedly pulled a vehicle into a bay and the system did not start. The person began honking the horn until someone offered assistance. The police were told there was an "exchange" and the driver was apparently told they had a bad attitude. The police said the case was civil rather than criminal in nature.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
On Sunday, Feb. 28 at 8:34 p.m., the police were called to the 1800 block of Sidewinder Drive, where two men, appearing to be in their 40s, were seen roasting marshmallows and drinking. The police classified the case as suspected trespassing.
A dog was seen running without tags along Round Valley Drive at 6:29 p.m.
The police at 4:21 p.m. received a complaint that a taxi bumped into a pedestrian while pulling out of a parking lot on the 2000 block of Park Avenue. The pedestrian was not visibly injured, the police said.
The police received a complaint from someone on the 1600 block of Bonanza Drive at 3:36 a.m., where a men’s restroom door had reportedly been locked since 10 p.m. the night before. Nobody was found to be inside the restroom, the police said. The Police Department indicated the circumstances were suspicious.
Three men were reported to have been seen walking in the street along the 1700 block of Park Avenue. They were "harassing passing motorists," the police were told. The Police Department classified the case as disorderly conduct.
A case logged as disorderly conduct was reported on the 400 block of Main Street at 1:15 a.m. Four people were involved, the police were told. The people were leaving. A little bit earlier, in an apparently unrelated case, a man was reported to be disorderly and was suspected to be intoxicated on Main Street at 12:09 a.m.
On Saturday, Feb. 27 at 11:25 p.m., a vehicle reportedly was hit in a garage on the 800 block of Main Street. A little bit later, at 11:44 p.m., the police logged a suspected trespassing case at the same address.
Five idling vehicles were reported between 10:29 p.m. and 11:19 p.m. on Main Street. There were other concentrations of idling cases last week as well.

Four or five men were reportedly seen walking in the middle of the road along the 1300 block of Deer Valley Drive. They were loud and refused to move to let vehicles pass, the police were told. The Police Department classified the case as suspected intoxication.
On Friday, Feb. 26, noises resembling fireworks were reported on Daly Avenue at 9:54 p.m. The person who contacted the police, though, did not see fireworks, according to department logs.
At 2:59 p.m., someone reported to the police they had picked up a hitchhiker and the person might have stolen a phone. The report was logged on Bonanza Drive, but it was not clear from public police logs where the hitchhiker was picked up.
Someone contacted the police at 1:28 p.m. from Little Kate Road indicating money had been paid for a window installation, but the person took the money and went on a vacation. The Police Department indicated the case was civil in nature rather than criminal.
Large rocks reportedly fell out of a construction truck at or close to the intersection of Bonanza Drive and Deer Valley Drive. The rocks presented a traffic hazard and the Streets Department would be summoned, the police said.

Park City police report numerous road issues, including drag racing, drunken driving and revving engines
The Park City Police Department last week and early this week responded to cases involving drivers in some manner, a series of reports that appeared broader in nature than is typical. Police officers stopped drivers for typical traffic violations, but there were also a series of hit-and-run traffic accidents, erratic driving and one complaint of drag racing.
