Unauthorized Use of a Financial Device: Grand Market Avenue — A female reported fraudulent charges on her financial account totaling over $2,300. All the transactions are in or around the Denver area. The female received a package at her house, with a male’s name, that was one of the items bought on her card fraudulently.

Speeding/Driving Under Revocation: 14th Street Southwest — A female driver was contacted for speeding and found that her license was revoked. She was booked at the Larimer County jail. Looks like it is time to call a friend to pick up the car …
Driving Under the Influence/Possession of a Schedule I Substance/Warrant Arrest: 14th Street Southwest — A female arrived on the scene of the above call to get the vehicle left on the scene and showed signs of drug impairment.

If you are on drugs and have a warrant, do not drive. Especially do not drive to help your friend at a traffic stop. There are better ways to take care of the warrant.

Reply; “did you call 911?” Reply back; “no, I don’t know how to do that”. This true story happened in Berthoud.
