Park City police blotter: Camouflage, bows point to likelihood of hunters
The Park City Police Department on Saturday received a report involving the likelihood of hunters in the area of Deer Valley.
The police logged the report at 8:26 a.m. on Marsac Avenue. The police were told drivers informed an employee at a lodge they saw a truck on the side of Marsac Avenue. Two men left the truck wearing camouflage clothing and carrying bows. The police were told the vehicle had Utah license plates.
The Police Department indicated the circumstances were suspicious.
There are vast acres of undeveloped land in the area of the upper reaches of Marsac Avenue that provide wildlife habitat. The police occasionally receive reports of hunter sightings.
