From the Delta County Sheriff's Office (partial list):
At about 3:40 p.m., traffic was diverted from Highway 65 due to a downed power line near Willow Lane in Eckert. The incident occurred in the wake of a single-car accident. The Colorado State Patrol handled the investigation.
An Eckert resident handed over three counterfeit $100 bills he found in the roadway near his home. The bills were clearly not genuine.
A bicyclist who was training for an event was reported overdue when he had not returned four hours after he left. The report was made by the man's sister, who said he was not familiar with the area nor was he dressed for a night outside. Shortly after she called dispatch and just before sunset, the bicyclist returned from his ride on Surface Creek Road.
Two pit bulls entered a pigpen on Kettle Road, between Highway 65 and Vista Grande Road, and were behaving aggressively toward the hogs and their owner. A neighbor arrived with a firearm and killed both dogs. Davona Stewart, owner of the dogs, was issued a summons for ownership of a vicious dog.
An Orchard City resident out for a run came across a brand new purse with just the keys in it. He turned the found property over to sheriff's deputies.
A REDDI (Report Every Drunk Drive Immediately) was called in for a woman leaving the Desperado convenience store south of Crawford. Deputies were en route to the area when the Colorado State Patrol responded to an accident involving the same vehicle described in the REDDI report. The driver, Kimberly Vernon, 59, reportedly hit a planter, a parked car and a power pole near a residence at 464 Elm, Crawford. She was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital, then to the jail where charges were expected to be filed.
At about 7 p.m., a REDDI report was received about a silver Chevy swerving on the roadway in the area of Highway 92 and 3100 Road. A short time later, the vehicle was involved in a one-vehicle rollover. Charges are pending against Bertha Martin, 60, of Paonia.
A Paonia area resident reported the theft of medication from her residence. She provided deputies with the name of a possible suspect.
An 11-year-old male from Spring Lake, Mich., suffered a broken arm in an ATV accident in the 'dobies between Hotchkiss and Paonia.
Deputies assisted the Colorado State Patrol at the scene of a one-vehicle accident on Highway 92 near Crawford. A gold 1999 Jeep Cherokee wound up several hundred feet off the roadway with significant front end damage. The driver, Jessica Lerman, 28, of Utah was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital.
The body of Kenny Wallace, 63, was discovered by a friend in a camper near Eagle Point Road. It appears Wallace died of natural causes. Earlier this month, a warrant was issued for Wallace's arrest after deputies located five pounds of suspected methamphetamine and about $21,000 in cash at Wallace's Austin residence.
The theft of a 2006 silver Saturn Ion was reported from a Delta area residence. The owner said he had bought the vehicle just one week previously and it still had temporary registration.
A hunter in Leroux Creek came upon an ATV accident and a 70-year-old deceased victim who was later identified as Rickie Hite, 70, of Hotchkiss.
Deputies responded to Delta County Memorial Hospital where an 8-year-old Eckert boy was being treated. He was accidentally shot by a younger brother.
A Paonia area resident said he was chased by five dogs while riding his bike. A passing pickup driver got between him and the dogs, but he was still bit several times.
At about 5:50 p.m., deputies assisted the Colorado State Patrol with a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Highway 92 and 3200 Road. The two drivers, Edward Hawk, 22, of Hotchkiss, and Stanley Anderson, 60, of Gunnison, were transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital. The Colorado State Patrol is handling the investigation.
