At 9:34 a.m., in the 300 block of Rose Street, a code enforcement officer spoke to a female at her home about a sofa and bags of garbage in the driveway. The officer will check back on Tuesday for compliance.

At 10:08 a.m., in the 1400 block of Heather Street, code enforcement left door hanger warnings at three residences giving until Tuesday to correct the violations. Examples of what officers found include vehicle seats, tires, appliances, a sofa, an exercise bike, boxes, an end table and miscellaneous junk items.

At 10:15 a.m., at West Victory Way and Breeze Street, officers took a report of two juveniles getting into vehicles. The officer contacted two male juveniles. The juveniles were taken to Moffat County Public Safety Center. Police Chief Walt Vanatta said of the incident in an email: “The two juveniles mentioned below were by their own admission ‘car hopping,’ which means they were just going from car to car so see if they were unlocked. If (the car was) unlocked, they would enter and steal items. Please lock your vehicle when you park it. This is purely a crime of opportunity that can be prevented.”

At 1:35 p.m. in the 500 block of East Seventh Street a code enforcement officer report of two abandoned or junk vehicles. An administrative warning was mailed to the property owner for junk vehicles and vehicle parking. The warning provides until Feb. 8 to correct the violations.

At 3:06 p.m. in the 900 block of Finley Lane an officer cited a juvenile for possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

At 5:02 p.m. in the 600 block of East Fourth Street, an officer served a trespass notice.
