5:58 a.m. On the 900 block of East Victory Way, officers responded to a report of a disturbance. The caller heard a female screaming near the old Gofer Foods store but couldn’t tell exactly where she was. Officers responded to the area and contacted a woman at a nearby house, who said it was a verbal dispute with an old boyfriend.
10:37 a.m. On the 1100 block of West Sixth Street, a woman wanted to file harassment charges against another female party, who the complainant said was sending people to follow her around and harass her. She was trying to move out of an apartment, and officers were able to mediate situation until she could move out.
11:11 a.m. On the 800 block of East Seventh Street, a female reported a male party in Hayden was harassing her via text message, despite her requests that he stop. Officers learned it was possibly due to a civil issue for lack of payment on an item and suggested she report it to Routt County and settle it as a civil matter in court.
5:15 p.m. On the 1900 block of Woodland Avenue, officers responded to a report of a threat. A man stated he received a phone call from a party named Sean with a blocked number, who said he’d hired an attorney and was going to turn his wife in for opening mail and using a credit card. Officers determined it was a civil issue related to a custody battle.

7:12 p.m. On the 2900 block of Pinon Circle, officers responded to a report of a suspicious, dark-colored, half-ton, GMC-type vehicle that was sitting in front of a house for about 10 minutes before pulling away and weaving as it left. Officers were unable to locate it.
7:27 p.m. At the north Kum & Go, officers responded to a report of a theft. A teenager wearing tan pants and a grey hooded sweatshirt allegedly stole a drink and a holiday Snickers bar. Officers were unable to locate the youth, but the store possibly knew the identity of the youngster and may trespass them.
8:28 p.m. On the 1000 block of School Street, officers responded to a report of possible domestic violence. A woman reported a man left the residence and was possibly intoxicated and had a child in the car. Officers contacted both parties, and the man was neither intoxicated nor driving at the time. The dispute was verbal only.
9:05 p.m. On the 600 block of Wickes Avenue, officers responded to a report of a stolen cellphone. The phone’s owner had been texting the party they believed stole it, but the party wouldn’t give it back. The phone’s owner attempted to retrieve the phone after locating it using location technology, but was unsuccessful.
