From Edgewater Police Chief John Hough:
Later on June 15, 2015, at about 9:35 PM, an officer responded to the Target store at 1985 Sheridan Boulevard regarding a shoplifter in custody. The suspect, a 35-year-old male resident of Littleton who is on probation in Denver, was arrested and transported to the Jefferson County Jail for shoplifting and a felony arrest warrant issued by the Denver Sheriff’s Department for dangerous drugs.
On June 17, 2015, at about 10:25 PM, officers responded to the parking lot for the Edgewater Inn at Ames Street and 25th Avenue on a report of a disturbance. Upon their arrival, the officers discovered that several males were attempting to prevent another male from driving away from the parking lot due to his heavy alcoholic beverage intoxication. The suspect, a 61-year-old male resident of Denver, was arrested and issued a Jefferson County Court summons for DUI. The suspect is on federal probation and has an extensive record of prior DUI offenses. The suspect was transported to a local hospital when he complained of having a heart attack after being taken into custody.
On June 19, 2015, at about 12:25 PM, officers responded to the Target store at 1985 Sheridan Boulevard regarding a shoplift in progress. The officers contacted a male and female suspect. The male suspect, a 25-year-old resident of Lakewood, was found to be in possession of methamphetamine. The female suspect, a 30-year-old resident of Lakewood, had multiple outstanding arrest warrants from several jurisdictions for narcotics and shoplifting offenses; however, because she claimed to have a history of seizures she was transported to a local hospital, not arrested for the warrants and issued an Edgewater Municipal Court summons for shoplifting. The male suspect, who initially provided false information regarding his identity, was subsequently arrested and booked into the Jefferson County Jail for providing false identifying information to the officers, shoplifting, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft and possession of a controlled substance, i.e. methamphetamine. In addition, the male suspect was arrested for four warrants from Denver, Lakewood and Arapahoe County for dangerous drugs, shoplifting, false reporting and a traffic offense.
On June 20, 2015, at about 1:00 PM, officers responded to the Rainbow Clothing parking lot at 1931 Sheridan Boulevard regarding a child neglect incident. The officers discovered a 2-year-old male and an 11-year-old male locked in a van with the windows rolled up in 82 degree outside temperature. The officers located the mother of the children in the clothing store. The mother, a 28-year-old resident of Denver, was arrested and issued a Jefferson County Court summons for child abuse. Denver Human Services Child Protection was advised of the incident because the family resides in Denver.
On June 20, 2015, at about 8:30 PM, an officer responded to the Ace Hardware store at 1719 Sheridan Boulevard regarding an unwanted party at the store who refused to stop going through the store’s dumpster when asked. The officer located the suspect, a 30- year-old male resident of Lakewood who has had numerous prior contacts and arrests for shoplifting and narcotics offenses at the Edgewater Marketplace, in the alley to the rear of the store. The suspect was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, i.e. methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia and booked at the Jefferson County Jail.
On June 21, 2015, at about 10:45 PM, an officer responded to the parking lot of the Edgewater Plaza at 2250 Eaton Street regarding a suspicious vehicle. Upon the officer’s arrival, through the front window of the van he observed a male and a female suspect inside the van injecting themselves with an unknown substance. The male and female were oblivious to the presence of the officer. The male, a 32-year-old resident of Spokane, Washington, and the female, a 33-year-old resident of Chattaroy, Washington, were both arrested and issued a summons to Edgewater Municipal Court for possession of injection devices. According to a statement from the male suspect, there were at least 100 hypodermic needles and syringes in the vehicle.
