During a routine traffic stop Monday morning on the 3100 block of Wynne, police found Sabrina Lopez at the wheel, who had a warrant for her arrest out of Judge Jerome McCarthy’s city court.
Lopez was taken to jail.
Sorry, my mistake
Around 2 p.m. Monday, a resident living on the 1700 block of Thornton Avenue called to report that an item was stolen from his garage. He called back later to say he was mistaken and that he had found the “missing” item.
A call came in around 5:10 p.m. Monday about two suspicious-looking men near Pine Street and Hayes Avenue.
All that was going on was one man helping the other jump start his car.
Police are currently investigating an intimidation case.
Apparently, an unknown person hacked into someone’s computer on Center Street. All that is known is the hacker was using a number with a San Francisco area code.
At 6:28 Tuesday morning, a young male reportedly stole a vehicle at 360 Office Solutions, 206 W. Granite St.
Sometime during the next half hour, the vehicle was abandoned.
At 6:52 a.m., a woman, who was warming her vehicle on the 700 block of South Wyoming, unlocked her car to head to work and the young male jumped in to take the vehicle off her hands.
A male friend of the car owner jumped in and held the car thief down until officers arrived.
Officers arrested Coby Woods, 18, of Livingston. He was jailed on two felony vehicle theft counts.
Two calls came in Friday afternoon that teenagers were causing disturbances at Copper Mountain Park and at the Mountain Con.
Both times, however, when police reached the areas, the crowds had dispersed and there was no one in sight.
Carted off to jail
It was close to 3 a.m. Saturday when Cory Kraut, 30, called 911 to report he was being held against his will at Eddy’s Motel and that someone with a needle was trying to shoot something in his arm.
What police found out when they arrived was that Kraut made the whole thing up. He just wanted a ride home. He got a ride all right — not to his home, but to jail.
At 7 a.m. Saturday, someone called about a sketchy-looking male in the Bull Run Gulch area. The “shady” character turned out to be a jogger.
Shortly before 6:30 p.m. Saturday, a caller claimed an individual had thrown a number of things out of a room at Motel 6 onto the pavement.
When officers arrived, no one would answer at the room and a motel clerk was needed to unlock the door. Police found a 46-year-old male asleep on the bed and it took several minutes to wake him up.
When he did wake up, he told officers his name was Mr. Limberhand, when in fact he was Michael Elkshoulder, a resident of the Butte Pre-Release Center.
He was taken to jail for disorderly conduct and obstructing a police officer.
Taking a nap
A female tenant in the 600 block of Silver Bow Homes came home to her apartment to find a male sleeping in one of her kids’ beds, and quickly contacted police.
Officers went to her apartment and woke up Ronald Evans, 43, who then attempted to resist arrest. Evans was also jailed on criminal trespass to property.
The tenant, who was alone at the time, had never seen Evans before this incident.
At 8:30 p.m., police arrived at Fairmont Hot Springs regarding another theft from one of the lockers.
Police are investigating this and other incidents, as a number of lockers have been broken into in the last several weeks.
Late Saturday night, a police officer recognized Kimberly Lynn Lambert, who had a warrant out for her arrest, as she and an unidentified male were out walking.
When the officer stopped the couple, Lambert, 29, pulled her hoodie over her face and gave the officer a fictitious name.
Another officer arrived, and when they attempted to place Lambert under arrest, she resisted.
She was also jailed for possessing drug paraphernalia (pipe) and obstructing a police officer.
Some people apparently did not get the memo that New Year’s Eve has come and gone — at least not on the 2500 block of Nettie.
A call in came around 6:30 p.m. Saturday that two individuals were lighting fireworks in the area, but when police arrived, they had left the area.
A person picked up a male on the 500 block of South Montana at 11 p.m. Sunday, and gave him a ride to the 700 block of Main.
When they reached the destination, the passenger attempted to take the keys away from the driver and take his car.
A scuffle ensued, and the male left the area. The police have a name and are investigating.
