A one-vehicle rollover occurred at Highway 65 and Marion Road, Eckert, around 10 a.m. The Colorado State Patrol responded.
The sheriff's office received an anonymous tip about a large, commercial, possibly illegal marijuana grow operation southwest of Paonia. Investigators have been assigned to the case.

The sheriff's office was notified, via OnStar, of a Hummer H2 stuck on Kennecott Sough Road outside of Cedaredge. Jasmine Spearing-French and her mother Crystal Wilhelm of Colorado Springs, reportedly missed a turn and ended up on a muddy road. Delta County Search and Rescue members, who happened to be training in the area, provided courtesy transport to a motel in Cedaredge, where the women could make arrangements for a tow truck to retrieve their vehicle.
A one-vehicle accident occured on G50 Road a mile from Highway 50 at about 2 a.m. The driver, Kenneth Foster, 57, complained of neck and back pain and was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital. The Colorado State Patrol handled the investigation.
A fire was reported on Cactus Park Road, Cedaredge, shortly before 7 p.m. Sheriff's deputies determined Cody Kissner and Shawn Mossi had conducted a controlled burn earlier in the day. They believed the fire was out until an old hay shed began to burn. About $2,000 worth of tack stored inside was destroyed. Kissner is leasing the property and sheriff's investigators are contacting the owner to determine the value of the shed.
