Suspicious Circumstances / Mental Health: East Nebraska, a 41-year-old Berthoud woman believed her mother and father-in-law were kicking her and abusing her. She went to the neighbors and asked them to call the police. When deputies arrived on scene, the woman appeared to not be an accurate historian reporting that she was 189-years-old and presented timelines that were impossible to follow. She was unwilling to return home and appeared unable to care for herself outside of her parent’s assistance. The woman then pulled up her shirt exposing herself and ran down the street. She was taken to the hospital and was placed on a 72-hour hold.

Family Problems: Second Street, a resident reported her sister is out of control and said they need someone to pick her up. The sister is being violent, and their mom needs medical attention because she fell trying to hold her daughter down. Sister was transported to the hospital for evaluation and 72-hour hold.

Vehicle Crash with Injury:  I-25 Frontage Road, a truck with a trailer was making a left turn when another vehicle driven by a 57-year-old Mead woman, was attempting to pass on the left. This did not fare well as she crashed into the trailer causing severe damage to her vehicle and injuring her back. To add insult to injury she was cited for unsafe passing.

Suspicious Circumstances: River Glenn Way, a female sounded intoxicated and could barely give dispatch her address. She told the dispatcher she needed to find a rock and when she was asked if she needed police, fire or medical she responded, “all of them.” The woman is saying she needs help digging up a rock for her friend Joe because they need to find something for Joe. She is saying everyone is safe and that joe is married to the rock and that she is in danger because she can’t find her voice. The woman did say that she did smoke a little marijuana. A little she says, me thinks “a little” means “a lot”!

Early morning Traffic Stop:  Mountain Avenue and Berthoud Parkway, a vehicle was stopped for a traffic violation but was let go immediately when they told the deputy their father was in hospice care and they were just contacted stating he was passing. Sometimes you get hit right in the heart.

The juvenile driver was upfront and honest and provided the deputy with a small amount of marijuana, but she had no signs of impairment. Deputy contacted the parents and informed them of the marijuana. She was cited for speed and had to dump her marijuana out on the roadside. The odor was that of marijuana or a skunk (they smell the same). Sure glad it was not the skunk.

Vehicle Crash:  First Street and East Nebraska, a construction truck driver turned onto East Nebraska and saw the “No Construction Traffic” sign. He was attempting to back up onto First Street from East Nebraska and struck another vehicle with the I-beam he was hauling. Truck driver summonsed for unsafe backing.

Fraud by Check / Identity Theft / Possession of a Financial Device / 2nd Degree Burglary: First Street, staff called for us to give items back to an ex-employee that she left at the business. Upon an inventory of the items inside her purse, a photocopy of a driver’s license and Social Security card for another employee was found. Also found was a receipt for a check written out to the other employee from the business but it was cashed into the former employee’s account. I don’t think that counts as severance pay.
