Vagrant might have been spotted on Park City hillside

by Jay Hamburger The Park Record

A vagrant might have been spotted on a hillside between Prospector and Old Town, the Park City Police Department said, indicating there were at least two reports last week.

In one of the reports, police logs refer to the person as the "yellow coat vagrant." The two reports were logged within a little more than an hour of each other on Wednesday, Feb. 29.

In the first case, reported at 1:19 p.m., the police were told the vagrant might be spending time on a hillside above Bonanza Drive and Deer Valley Drive.

The second case, reported at 2:38 p.m. on Kearns Boulevard, referred to the person as the "yellow coat vagrant." A police officer apparently wanted to speak to the person, but public police logs did not provide details. The police classified the circumstances as suspicious.

The Police Department occasionally receives complaints about people camping in the Park City hills, but it is rare that someone does so in the winter. Camping is prohibited in the Park City limits.
