From Edgewater Police Chief John Mackey:

Motor Vehicle Trespass – Four Juveniles Arrested

On 8/21 at about 3:25 AM Corporal Geerdes and Officer Palmer were dispatched to 2616 Kendall Street for juveniles breaking into cars. Mountain View PD and Lakeside PD responded to assist, and officers spotted four kids in the Terra Village community. The juveniles all fled the area upon seeing officers but they were quickly arrested by both officers and Terra Village residents who assisted. During the foot chase, a black car took off from Kendall St. at a high rate of speed.

Arrested were two 13 year old Denver males, and a 14 year old Denver male as well as a 13 year old Northglenn male, three of which have had previous contacts with our department. Several cars appeared to have been broken into and the investigation is on-going.

Good Stop on Suspicious Persons

On 8/22 at about 3 AM Officer Brink observed two black males walking in the alleyway in the 2500 block between Ames and Benton Streets. The two males fled immediately although Officer Brink was able to detain them after a short distance. The males were found with a crowbar and their vehicle was found parked in the 2500 block of Benton St. with jewelry inside. One of the males was an active parolee out of Denver and his parole officer was notified and the other male was released on a trespass summons pending additional investigation.
Good job Officer Brink!

Speeding – 74 MPH in a 30 MPH Zone

On 8/21 about 1:23 AM Corporal Geerdes stopped a black 2003 Stratus for speeding 74 MPH in the posted 30 MPH zone along W. 26th Ave. The 20 year old driver was traveling eastbound on W. 26th Ave and stopped at his residence in the 2600 block of Kendall St. where he was contacted by Corporal Geerdes. The driver did not have a driver’s license as he was driving his sister’s vehicle which was towed as there was no proof of registration or insurance. The driver was arrested for DUI, and associated traffic violations.

Neighborhood Watch

The City of Edgewater Police Department is revising our Neighborhood Watch program. There appears to be Neighborhood Watch Signs in the city that are not listed in our current records and we would like to update the list of neighbors within each Neighborhood Watch Block.

The goal is to communicate with that block captain to reinstate them and to get the block reoriented on how Neighborhood Watch will benefit both the neighbors and your police department. Please notify Lorenzo Rendon,  volunteers@edgewaterpd.com our volunteer coordinator with the police department and spearheading the Neighborhood Watch program in Edgewater.

Community Picnic – August 27, 6 – 9 PM

On that date and time your Police Department will celebrate the goals of National Night Out with residents while meeting neighbors and providing information and updates on the programs that contribute to community safety.

Baseball pitch and soccer kicks for speed for all ages at the baseball backstop – we’ll bring the baseballs and soccer balls – you bring the heat!
