Woman reports lost rings
A woman reported Thursday that she lost her engagement ring, wedding band and channel set anniversary band with a combined value of more than $2,300, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.
The woman suspected she lost the ring set about 6:30 p.m. Jan. 5 outside McAlister’s Deli, 480 Park Drive, when she was moving items between her car and her mother’s car in the dark.
She also went to the Fruita Recreation Center and JC Penney earlier in the day. All three businesses have been notified about the lost rings.
The engagement ring is a 14-carat white gold band with a single Marquis diamond in the center and two pear-shaped diamonds on either side. The wedding band is 14-carat white gold and plain.
The channel set anniversary band is white gold with 11 small stones that wrap about halfway around the band, the report said.
Vacant trailer burns
No one was injured when a vacant trailer burned Thursday night at 3198 C Road, according to fire officials.
A structure fire was reported at 9:30 p.m., and multiple law enforcement and fire agencies responded to the scene, including Grand Junction police and fire departments, Mesa County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado State Patrol.
A perimeter was established, with roadblocks on 32 Road at B 1/2 and C 1/2 roads and a block on C Road at 32 1/2 Road.
Central Orchard Mesa Volunteer Fire Department Chief Dave Gitchell said the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
Early reports of an explosion causing the fire were unfounded, he said, adding that the speculation probably originated when trailer tires or small propane tanks became heated and pressurized, producing some low-level explosions because of the fire.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:
■ Casey Odean Tefertiller, 28, address unknown, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of felony menacing and resisting arrest.
■ A juvenile boy was arrested Jan. 10 in the 500 block of Garland Street for possession of a handgun by a juvenile and unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon.
He is in custody with the Department of Youth Corrections.
According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office:
■ Jess Daniel Timbreza, 34, address unknown, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of unlawful use of a controlled substance after a digital scale with presumptive methamphetamine residue on it allegedly was found during a voluntarily search of his vehicle. Timbreza said it wasn’t his scale.
According to the Montrose County Sheriff’s Office:
■ A barking dog complaint was made, and the person was informed that the county doesn’t have a noise ordinance.
