Between Monday, Dec. 2, and Wednesday, Dec. 4, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to calls including the following:
Deputies responded to a citizen dispute in the Snyderville Basin in which two men were engaged in a verbal argument at a bus stop. No assault had occurred, but the two mens’ accounts of how the argument started conflicted.
An individual in South Summit reported he had received several suspicious phone calls from an unknown phone number stating he had a warrant for his arrest for bank fraud and to call the number back. Several of the individual’s family members received similar calls and the case was referred for investigation.
Officers responded to a noise disturbance call in the Basin, during which an individual stated very loud music had been coming from the home for the past several days. No suspects were found in the home, but drug paraphernalia was booked as evidence. The homeowners want anyone found inside the home arrested.
A report was received of a basketball court, a garbage can and stop signs being spray painted in the Basin. A contractor on the site said the graffiti happened some time between 4 p.m. on Nov. 30 and 9 a.m. on Dec. 1.
Deputies were dispatched to a panic alarm at a Redstone business. No incident had occurred but during the day Dispatch had received six additional panic alarms which had all turned out to be false. The business at which the false alarms occurred said they were working on their security system.
An individual stated that at some point between Nov. 29 and Nov. 30, an automatic gate for a North Summit business was possibly hit by a vehicle, breaking off its hinges. Upon further investigation, it appeared the gate was hit intentionally. There were no suspects at the time of the report and the case was forwarded for investigation.
Officers responded to a call of a male on State Road 224 who had flagged down a vehicle for 911 help, saying he had been burned. It was determined he had come from a business at which the Park City Fire District had been dealing with a water flow alarm. PCFD said they found evidence of possible arson in the building. The area was contained and the man refused to speak with a deputy at the hospital regarding the incident, which is still under investigation.
A woman was stopped for driving in the wrong lane in the Basin and during the traffic stop was found to be under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. She was also found to be an alcohol-restricted driver and required to have an interlock ignition device. Her blood was drawn for evidence and she was booked into the Summit County Jail.
A suspect had called in to the Sheriff’s Office for multiple unfounded reports and was warned not to call 911 about non-emergency information. He had also been suspected of assault with a firearm, threatening and kidnapping.
A deputy stopped a driver on S.R. 224 for a traffic violation and identified the passenger, a female, as having an active warrant for her arrest. She was booked into the Summit County Jail.
