Police blotter


Someone at Park City Mountain Resort reported a snowboard was stolen on Thursday, Dec. 13, one of the season’s first cases of skis or snowboards being stolen at one of the local resorts.

The case was reported at 7:41 p.m., but the Park City Police Department’s public logs do not provide details. They do not show where at the resort the snowboard was reportedly taken.

The Police Department often handles a run of cases involving stolen skis and snowboards as crowds start arriving at PCMR and Deer Valley Resort, which is also largely within the department’s jurisdiction.

Some of the cases usually involve someone misplacing their equipment when they go inside a lodge, but the police determine others were swiped.

The Police Department operates a ski-registration program. Information is available by calling the department, 615-5500.

Other incidents reported to the police last week include:
