Park City police blotter: Nov. 28
The Park City Police Department on Saturday received at least three complaints about parking issues in neighborhoods, including two cases involving cars parked in someone’s driveway.
A plumber’s truck was reported to be parked in a driveway on American Saddler Drive. The police received the report at 6:11 p.m., but dispatchers were told the truck was in the driveway the day before. The person wanted the police to walk around the perimeter of the house since there were no plumbing appointments scheduled, according to Police Department logs.
The police at 4:13 p.m. received a complaint of a car parked in a driveway on Deer Lake Drive blocking a garage. It had been there since the morning and the person who contacted the police was unsure who the owner was, according to department logs.
A car was reportedly parked in front of a house on Geronimo Court at 11:09 a.m. It had been there a few days and was interfering with snow removal operations, the police were told.
