From the Delta County Sheriff's Office (partial list):
Around 11 p.m., an Ash Mesa resident reported suspicious activity around a neighbor's farm equipment. Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate a vehicle or the suspects.
Deputies were asked to check on four horses on H75 Road that hadn't had hay for over a week. Later in the week, neighbors expressed concern about horses that had possibly been abandoned in the Crawford area. A third call came from an individual in Crested Butte who had heard reports the horses she boards in Delta County were being neglected. In all instances, deputies determined there was no cause for serious concern.
At about 11 p.m., a house fire was reported on 3100 Road, Hotchkiss, but after emergency responders arrived on scene they determined the fire was a controlled burn that had been called in the previous day. The fire was under control.
A Hotchkiss resident reported a fraudulent credit card charge of $1,600 for Broncos tickets.
A Cedaredge area woman said her husband was threatening to travel from Oklahoma to Colorado to kill her.
