Greeley-Evans Crime Log: Naked, Eviction and a Bat
Are you ready to laugh out loud with the closest thing to reality TV? What am I talking about? Some of the ridiculous calls to law enforcement around Greeley and Evans.
Oh the humanity! They are out and again just make you laugh. As the Greeley Tribune reported the reports are in for August 29th through August 31st.
Saturday, Aug. 29
8:45 a.m.: A resident in the 200 block of 19th Avenue Court called Weld County dispatchers to find out if there was a warrant for his arrest. The man told dispatchers Greeley police could swing by to pick him up if he was wanted.
11:15 a.m.: Greeley police responded to the 1300 block of 32nd Avenue for a possible theft. The caller was seeking legal advice because a third party had “hijacked” some possessions and refused to return them until he was paid for moving them. The caller told dispatchers he was carrying a weapon as he is a concealed carry permit holder.
Noon: A high school student called Weld County dispatchers to find out if it would be illegal for her to videotape officers conducting a traffic stop for a school project.
12:15 p.m.: A high school student called Weld County dispatchers again asking that a Greeley police officer call her back because her report was due soon.
7:15 p.m.: Greeley police responded to the 1000 block of 13th Street to talk to a man about an eviction notice he received. Once on scene, the man handed the notice to police. Police told the man it was not a legitimate eviction notice because it was handwritten and his landlord was not seeking to evict him.
9:45 p.m.: Greeley police responded to 32nd Street to meet with a mother who found drug residue and paraphernalia in her young daughter’s luggage. The mother told police she had just gained custody of her daughter from her ex-husband who “does meth and such.” The mother wanted to give the paraphernalia and her daughter’s bags to police for evidence.
Sunday, Aug. 30
12:30 a.m.: Greeley police responded to the 6600 block of 10th Street for a report of a naked man with a beard who broke into a man’s apartment, raided his fridge and then left.
2:15 a.m.: Greeley police responded to 6th Street and 24th Avenue for a report of an intoxicated man throwing his bike at passing cars.
10:30 a.m.: Greeley police responded to a store in the 2400 block of 8th Avenue for a report of an unwanted intoxicated man. Employees were insistent police knew the man was not being aggressive. He was telling everyone he loved them.
4:15 p.m.: A boy walking in the 600 block of 10th Avenue called police asking for help because he dropped his cell phone in a storm drain near the Greeley Recreation Center and he was worried he would lose all of his contacts. Weld County dispatchers told the boy to contact his parents for help.
Monday, Aug. 31
1:45 a.m.: Greeley police responded to a possible theft of a pickup in the 6100 block of 15th Street. The owner told dispatchers he saw two people acting suspiciously near his truck. Before he could get a good look at them, the two people were picked up by and driven away from the house in a silver Chevy Blazer. While at the home, the Blazer returned to the area and dropped the two people off at the house. They were the man’s daughters who were trying to sneak out of the house.
6:45 a.m.: Greeley police responded to the 2200 block of 16th Street for a report of a live bat in the kitchen. The caller asked for police to respond before the children woke up for breakfast. The bat was eventually caught and released about 8 a.m.
