Edgewater Police Report: 4/3/16-4/10/16

From Edgewater Police Chief John Mackey:


On 4/10/2016 at about 5:45 AM an unknown suspect(s) entered the garage door to a townhome in the 1700 block of Depew Street while the residents slept. The suspect took a purse from the kitchen table and keys to their 2016 Black Jeep Grand Cherokee. The resident’s dogs were barking furiously which alerted the homeowners at which point they awoke to find the purse and vehicle stolen.


On 4/3/2016 a 2014 Beige Subaru was stolen in the 2500 Block of Gray St. The vehicle was recovered the same day in the 2600 Block of Ingalls St. School Resource Officer McCallin learned that some students at Jefferson High School had stolen a vehicle locally, and been involved in a hit and run crash in Denver, as well as an additional police pursuit in Westminster. Officer McCallin’s follow-up investigation led to the arrests of two students and one former student for the Gray Street auto-theft as well as additional information to be investigated with the Denver and Westminster Police Departments. Great job School Resource Officer McCallin!
