Snowboarders seen with cap gun on slopes at PCMR
The Park City Police Department says a person reportedly seen with a gun on the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort possessed a cap gun while snowboarding on Monday, Feb. 12.
According to Lt. Phil Kirk, the police received the report at 4:15 p.m. from a PCMR employee, who told the police a male snowboarder appeared to have a handgun near the Bunny Hollow area of the resort, under the 3 Kings lift.
Someone from PCMR followed the snowboarder to the bottom of the Payday lift and called the police, Kirk says.
The Police Department investigated and found one suspect on Feb. 15 and another on Feb. 16, both teen-agers from Park City, according to Kirk. They told the police they bought the silver cap gun at a dollar store but the police are unsure why they brought it to the resort.
They did not threaten anyone with the cap gun.
No charges are pending, Kirk says.
