Weather diverts jet to GJ
Snowy weather elsewhere Saturday forced a Southwest Airlines 737 jet to land at Grand Junction Regional Airport, while weather was blamed for delays on other flights, an airport official said.
The Southwest flight, which took off from Baton Rouge, La., landed in Grand Junction at 9:39 a.m. as conditions at Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden prevented a scheduled landing there, said Amy Jordan, deputy director of administration at the Grand Junction airport. Passengers were deplaned before boarding again and leaving 70 minutes later for Hayden, Jordan said. Three of the airport’s regular Saturday flights to Denver were also delayed 30 to 45 minutes because of poor weather, she said.
Business hit in burglary
Someone burglarized a business on Feb. 2 in the 500 block of Bogart Lane, and once inside, entered several vehicles and stole unspecified items, according to the Grand Junction Police Department. The loss was more than $1,000, police said.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:
■ Jonathan Baron, 45, was cited early Friday on suspicion of disorderly conduct at 122 S. Fifth St.
■ A 25-year-old woman reported Wednesday property valued at less then $500, including checks, credit cards and her social security card, was stolen overnight after someone smashed a passenger-side window on her car parked in the 300 block of Ridges Boulevard. There was no suspect information.
■ A loss was reported at more than $1,000 after someone used a bank account without authorization in the 2600 block of North Seventh St.
The Mesa County Sheriff’s Department did not release jail booking information or activity reports on Saturday.
