Edgewater Police Report: December 14, 2015

From Edgewater Police Chief John Mackey:

On December 13, 2015 at about 10 PM Edgewater Officers were requested to assist Mountain View Police Department on a traffic stop of a silver Saturn at 44th & Yates St. While in route to the location officers were advised that gunshots had been exchanged between the driver of the Saturn and the Mountain View Officer. On scene, officers found that the driver of the Saturn was shot during the exchange, and the driver was transported to the hospital – investigation continues.

On December 10, 2015 at about 9:40 AM Edgewater Police received a credible report that a known former student of Jefferson High School with a history of violent crime was at 20th & Pierce Streets with a weapon and that he intended to cause harm to students. Officers immediately had area schools locked down while Edgewater, Lakewood and Mountain View officers searched the area. The person was taken into custody within five minutes of the call, and the schools were immediately reopened. The investigation revealed that the former student and family indicated that he had not owned or possessed any weapons in Colorado, and he indicated that he had no intention of hurting anyone.

Edgewater Officers responded to the 2800 Block of Ingalls St. this past week on an attempted auto theft. The victim’s 1995 White Honda had been forcibly entered, the steering column had been broken, although the battery had been disconnected which prevented the thieves from stealing the vehicle. Edgewater Officers will be teaming with the metro Auto Theft Task Force Detectives in the coming weeks in an effort to combat the problem of auto theft.

Traffic Enforcement: Officers have conducted traffic enforcement regularly throughout the city this past week. The officers contacted several drivers operating with revoked licenses, several registration violations, and speeding and careless driving violations.

In addition the following drivers were found to be driving under the influence the previous week.
Edgewater Officers arrested multiple persons for DUI this period:
25 year old male Denver resident.
26 year old male Denver resident.

Edgewater Officers arrested multiple persons for shoplifting this period:
