Beware of strangers at door

The Grand Junction Police Department is again telling people not to let strangers into their homes after several recent complaints of door-to-door salesmen were made, police said in a news release Friday.

One homeowner recently reported jewelry missing after she let a salesman in to use the bathroom. Another homeowner recently reported a salesman made threatening statements to her when she let him in to use the bathroom, police said.

Anyone with information about similar incidents should call the Police Department’s non-emergency dispatch number at 242-6707.

Will Frosty be back again?


A woman reported Thursday that two lawn ornaments valued at about $50 were stolen from her yard in the 400 block of Morning Dove Drive some time between 
2 a.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday. The plastic ornaments were each about 4 feet tall.

One was a brown teddy bear holding a bag of puppies and another was “Frosty the Snowman,” according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.


According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department:

■ Medical marijuana valued at less than $700 and nearly $1,800 in cash were reported stolen Thursday from a residence in the 600 block of Hudson Bay Court, after a rock was used to break a sliding glass door to enter the house and a garage door had been damaged to get into the garage.


According to the Palisade Police Department:

■ Two fights were reported Dec. 7 at Palisade High School. The first was between two girls. The second was between two boys. All were ticketed for fighting.

■ A man blaring music in his car Dec. 6 near Bowner Avenue and Second Street was informed “that keeping the music at a reasonable level would negate the need for further law enforcement action resulting in fines.”

■ A black bag was found Dec. 5 on Iowa Avenue. It was reported as suspicious.

According to the Garfield County Sheriff’s Department:

■ Deputies took two dogs running at large Wednesday in the Battlement Mesa area to the Divide Creek shelter.

One of the dogs was a male black lab, and the other was a male, white and black heeler mix with three legs.
