From the Delta County Sheriff's Office (partial list):
At about 1 p.m., Dirk Pinto and Kelly Pollak were involved in a head-on collision on Highway 133 near Paonia. Sheriff's deputies, North Fork Ambulance and the Colorado State Patrol responded to the scene. Both drivers complained of some pain.

A Hotchkiss resident was advised that a trade "gone bad" was a civil, not criminal, matter.
A man living on 2000 Road, Delta, observed a half-ton Dodge pickup on his neighbor's property. The neighbor had asked the man to keep an eye on his property while he was out of town. The man walked over to the property and confronted three individuals rummaging around in an outbuilding. They provided names and contact information and complied with his request to leave. Nothing appeared to be missing. When deputies arrived on the scene, the man handed over the contact information. Deputies are attempting to determine if that information is real or fictitious.
A man living on Niagara Avenue, Paonia, reported a maroon Chevy Suburban had hit his fence. After taking down the fence, the Suburban left the area. The man provided a description of the vehicle and its general direction.
A Delta resident who was expecting some important documents in the mail reported they'd likely been stolen. The theft was one of several that have been occurring throughout the county. Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee advises recipients to check their mailboxes as soon as possible after delivery, or to ask their neighbors to do that favor if they're not at home when mail is delivered. Avoid the early placement of outgoing mail in the box; a raised red flag can draw would-be thieves.
