Drive-by egging

According to a Boulder County Sheriff ’s Office report, pranksters used eggs for more than coloring this holiday season, judging from a case of criminal mischief that occurred sometime on March 25 or March 26. The suspect or suspects allegedly threw eggs at a white limousine at 4776 Heatherwood Ct., causing approximately $200 in paint damage. Deputies reported there are currently no leads or suspects in the case.

Distempered ’coon put down

At 3 p.m. on March 25, deputies from the Boulder County Sheriff ’s Office responded to a call from a homeowner at 7757 East County Line Rd. who was concerned about a distempered raccoon in the area. According to a police report, the responding deputy had to fire three rounds in order to dispatch the animal. No one was injured.

Enticement and exposure

The Boulder County Sheriff ’s Office is investigating two separate cases that potentially involve the same suspect; the cases involve enticement of a child and indecent exposure. The enticement of a child case occurred near Heatherwood Elementary at 2:30 p.m. on March 12. The indecent exposure case occurred at a park near the intersection of Indigo Court and White Rock Circle in Gunbarrel at 11:30 a.m. on March 22. The suspect was described as a white male, between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-11, in his late 60s, with balding gray hair. He was last seen in the Heatherwood area in a tan minivan, and in the Gunbarrel area on a bicycle. The Boulder County Sheriff ’s Office is requesting the public’s assistance in the matter, and those with any information about the suspect or the whereabouts of his vehicle can contact Det. Lori Cox at 303-441-3673.


At approximately 4 p.m. on April 2, deputies from the Boulder County Sheriff ’s Office, firefighters from the Nederland Fire Department and emergency services responded to a 1994 Winnebago motor home at 190 Shady Hollow Rd. that was on fire. The Nederland firefighters used a foam-based extinguisher to quickly put out the fire.

There were no injuries associated with the fire, but the damage — which was contained inside the living area of the vehicle — is estimated to be about $10,000.

The fire’s cause is still under investigation with the Boulder County Sheriff ’s Office.
