[ARCHIVED] Weekly Crime Alert by Community Resource Officer Roger Doll

Fort Morgan Police are investigating a vehicle vandalism that required a costly fix.

On October 20th, police took a vandalism report from a resident that lives in the 1100 block of Linda Street. Before calling police, the vehicle owner had found their vehicle with a flat tire.

The vehicle was undamaged the previous day and was parked in a parking lot overnight. At the time they did not suspect anything unusual, believing they may have simply run over a nail.

The tire was removed from the vehicle and took it in for a repair. It was not until the store employee discovered that the tire had been cut or punctured, possibly with a knife, that the owner realized their vehicle had been intentionally damaged.

The tire was unable to be repaired and the replacement cost for the owner was $85 dollars.

Anyone with information on this or other crimes is asked to call the Fort Morgan Police Department at (970) 867-5678. If a person with information wishes to remain anonymous they can call Crime Stoppers at (970) 542-3411 and may be eligible for a cash reward or submit your tip online.
