Edgewater Police Report: July 27, 2015

On July 23, 2015, at about 10:55 PM, officers responded to a large disturbance at Citizens Park at 22nd Avenue and Chase Street that erupted during a softball league championship game when some members of both teams began verbally challenging and threatening the umpires. The umpires were unsuccessful in controlling the players and the game was called. Four officers from the Department were able to disperse the players and the crowd, although many of those players and spectators continued their verbally aggressive and confrontational behavior between each other and the officers as they left the area. There were no arrests made and no injuries sustained by any of the involved parties.

On July 23, 2015, at about 11:20 PM, officers responded to an apartment in the 6200 block of W. 26th Avenue regarding an altercation between a mother and her daughter. When the officers contacted the mother, a 37-year-old female resident of Edgewater, she was arrested and transported to the Jefferson County Jail for harassment and child abuse. The daughter sustained only minor injuries.

Sometime between 10:00 PM on July 24, 2015 and 8:00 AM on July 25, 2015 a 2014 dark gray Volkswagen Beetle was stolen from the driveway of a residence in the 2400 block of Marshall Street.

On July 25, 2015, at about 2:10 AM, an officer monitoring vehicle traffic in the 2200 block of Sheridan Boulevard observed a vehicle southbound on Sheridan Boulevard weaving between lanes of traffic. When the officer contacted the driver, a 33-year-old male resident of Denver, he was arrested and issued a Jefferson County Court summons for failing to operate his vehicle in a single lane of traffic (weaving), failing to present evidence of vehicle insurance upon request and DUI.

For those of you who regularly review the information contained in these media releases, you might notice that there has been a recent significant decrease in reported criminal activity in Edgewater, from DUI and narcotics arrests to stolen vehicles and incidents of domestic violence. There are usually a multitude of reasons for decreases, or increases, in reported criminal activity, some within the control of the police department, such as increased pro-active patrols, and some outside the control of the police department, such as incidents of domestic violence or crimes of passion. For whatever reason, the net result is an increase in community safety for at least this recent period of time.
