Craig briefs for July 26
Craig Police Department investigators are trying to determine the identity of a male customer who was in the east Kum & Go convenience store on Victory Way early Monday morning.
The customer was in the store at the time of an attempted robbery, the Police Department reported in a news release Monday.
Police reported that between 3:30 and 3:45 a.m. a male suspect entered the store wearing a bandana across his face and threatened the store clerk with a knife. The clerk did not comply with the suspect's demands to open the cash register and give the suspect money.
The suspect then left the store on foot, walking north on Legion Street. Officers and investigators responded to the scene and conducted an investigation into the incident.
The customer is asked to call the Police Department's Investigations Unit at 826-2367 or 826-2366. The investigation into the attempted robbery is ongoing.

DOW seeks public opinion on regulations
The Colorado Division of Wildlife is accepting public feedback to help determine the five-year big game season structure for deer, elk, pronghorn, bear and moose. The season structure will provide a framework for hunting regulations during the 2010 through 2014 hunting seasons. The framework takes into account various topics, including the length of big game hunting seasons and proportion of limited and unlimited licenses granted.
Suggestions may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feedback may also be sent to Big Game Season Structure, c/o Public Involvement Section, 6060 Broadway, Denver, CO, 80216. For more information, visit the DOW's Web site at http://wildlife.state.co.us.
