Injured mountain biker rescued and vehicle burglaries solved
The Park City Police Department rescued an injured mountain biker at Park City Mountain Resort on Saturday, July 15, the department reports.
According to the Police Department, the man’s girlfriend called the police at 5:05 p.m., reporting that the man was lost and may need medical attention.
The police contacted the person on the phone and the department says that he was stranded at the bottom of the resort’s King Con lift.
An officer found the man, gave him water and brought him off the mountain.
Meanwhile, the police say they solved a series of vehicle burglaries, perhaps two or three, reported last week.
Lt Phil Kirk says a person’s car was broken into at the Marriott hotel in Prospector and the thieves either tried to cash a check or use a credit card, which were taken in the break-in.
The victim’s bank contacted the person, who later found that their car was broken into.
The police found a security tape of the suspect, who Kirk says was staying at the hotel. Officers found the suspect and Kirk says that the police discovered stolen property in the hotel room.
Kirk links the suspect to several vehicle break-ins.
