April 3:

A Peach Valley resident who said four saddles were stolen from a tack shed on his property found a neighbor's cell phone in that shed. Deputies spoke with the neighbor, who denied the theft. They arranged a meeting between the two parties, who came up with an agreement for restitution.

At about 4 p.m., a 59-year-old Delta woman was reported missing by her husband, who said she had left for a walk about 9 a.m. that morning. He also said she had been struggling with mental and medical issues. Delta County Search & Rescue searched until dark, then resumed the search the following morning. Early that afternoon, the woman's body was found. Cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A resident of F Road, Delta, reported the theft of a credit card from his mail. Several days later, someone tried to use the credit card at a Delta business. The attempt was not successful because the card had not been activated. Using the information on the credit card, which was left behind, the business owner contacted the rightful owner.

April 4:

At about 1:30 p.m., Paonia and Hotchkiss firefighters were dispatched to a large out-of-control burn between 35800 and 35914 Highway 133. Two DMEA power poles, two campers and a privacy fence were damaged. A house suffered heat damage. The controlled burn was started by Samuel Fritzlan, who told deputies he thought he had thoroughly soaked the area with water before he left the scene. The sheriff's office is considering a summons for fourth degree arson.

A 13-year-old female was reported as a runaway from her grandfather's home west of Delta. She reportedly ran away a week or so earlier but had returned.

A Clifton area woman who drove to 1900 Road, Delta, to look at property said she was confronted by a female she described as malnourished and uneducated. She contacted deputies because she believed the female to be Abby Blagg, missing from Mesa County since 2001. Deputies turned the information over to Mesa County authorities.

April 5:

At about 12:30 p.m., an out-of-control fire was reported on Pitkin Road, Paonia. The property owner had properly contacted the burn line, so no charges were filed. He and a neighbor agreed to work out restitution for damages.

A Paonia resident reported that he had just received a prescription refill in the mail and 18 pills were missing from the bottle.

Deputies responded to the hospital emergency room, where an Austin mother had taken her two daughters because she suspected child abuse. The emergency room physician found no physical signs of abuse. Child Protective Services was notified.

At about 11 p.m., a Delta area man spotted someone trying to steal his tractor. Deputies contacted Chad Larkins, 34, of Hotchkiss, who initially provided a false identity. He was charged with criminal impersonation, third degree trespass, aggravated motor vehicle theft and second degree burglary. The owner of the tractor reported a battery booster was also missing; it was not located.

April 8:

A Delta resident called in a rollover accident near the intersection of 1600 and B roads at about 4 a.m. Delta firefighters arrived on the scene and were able to get the door of the vehicle open, but no one was inside. The Colorado State Patrol is handling the investigation.

A deputy patrolling in Hotchkiss spotted a suspicious vehicle at Stop 'n Save at about 7 p.m. As he approached the vehicle, the driver sped away. The driver, later identified as David Reed, 32, of Paonia, allegedly headed westbound on Highway 92 at a very high rate of speed. As speeds approached 100 mph, the deputy backed off and maintained visual contact. The driver allegedly turned off on Payne Siding Road, then came back onto Highway 92 without stopping. Flames were visible on the undercarriage of the car. Reed stopped and complied with the deputy's commands to exit the vehicle. A Colorado State Patrol trooper and firefighters arrived to assist, but the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames. It was determined Reed was wanted on a felony warrant out of Grand Junction. He is also charged with vehicular eluding, reckless driving, speeding 40+, driving under restraint and disregarding a traffic control device.
