A rural Delta resident reported the theft of two guns, a .270 rifle and a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol.
What was reported as a house "exploding" was likely a greenhouse that was destroyed by a fire on Grange Road, Paonia, at about 2 p.m. A small two-bedroom residence was also destroyed. Samuel Moulin was issued a summons for burning on a red flag day, a county violation, and fourth degree arson, in violation of a state statute. Deputies determined he had been burning cardboard in a burn barrel.
A burglary was reported by a resident of Q50 Road, Cedaredge. While the homeowner was away, an intruder apparently crawled through a window of the home. Missing items included a wallet containing about $220 cash and credit cards, jewelry and a $700 Martin DX1E guitar. The case is under investigation.
Two bicycles were reported stolen from a home on F Road.
Deputies were asked to intervene in a neighborhood dispute over road access that's been going on for seven years.
Shortly after midnight, a neighbor reported a tree on fire just off 2200 Road. When deputies and firefighters arrived on the scene, the fire had spread to an unoccupied home owned by Dr. James Clark. The home was a total loss. Lightning appears to be the likely cause of the fire.
At 2:43 a.m., deputies and firefighters responded to a home on Old Wagon Road, Delta, for a small electrical fire that triggered the smoke alarm.
