At the request of the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, a deputy visited a residence on Elm Avenue in Crawford. They found a 2001 silver Pontiac Grand Prix that had been reported stolen from Mesa County, but did not locate the suspect at that address.
Jake Pierce, 24, of Austin was charged with harassment, domestic violence, criminal mischief and violation of bail bond conditions after a disturbance in the Austin area. He was transported to Delta County Jail.
A male reported he had been pepper sprayed by his girlfriend while they were staying in a Winnebago motor home on O Road outside of Paonia. When deputies arrived at the Winnebago, they found a window broken out. The occupant, Aleen Voyles, 43, of Hotchkiss, said she believed her boyfriend was going to assault her, so she sprayed him. Further investigation revealed the boyfriend was given access to work on the Winnebago, but Voyles was not known to the property owner. She was charged with second degree burglary and criminal mischief.
At about 10:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to a residential fire on Grange Road, Paonia. Paonia firefighters were on scene, blowing smoke out of the house with a large fan. It was determined that a faulty power strip had caused a smoldering fire that destroyed a mattress and some newspapers. There was no serious structural damage to the home.
A Cedaredge area resident reported the theft of license plates from her vehicle.
A Delta area resident reported that a neighbor's dog had killed his sheep.
At 12:30 a.m., while on routine patrol on Highway 92 near 2200 Road, a deputy observed a driver that failed to use his turn signal. The deputy pulled in behind the sedan and observed the driver was unable to maintain a single lane. He activated his emergency lights; the driver of the sedan accelerated and went into the opposite lane of traffic on Highway 92. The deputy backed off, in accordance with the department's pursuit policy, but maintained visual contact. The driver turned onto Redlands Mesa Road and upon reaching 3100 Road, turned around and came back down the hillside. He lost control of his vehicle at the edge of a driveway; the vehicle rolled and came to a rest on its wheels. The driver, Kenneth Gallob, 34, of Eckert was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital and later transferred to the jail. He is charged with vehicular eluding, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, driving with expired plates, violation of a protection order, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance believed to be methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence. Because a passenger in the vehicle wanted him to stop, and he refused, he's also charged with second degree kidnapping.
