Multiple noise complaints
A deputy with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department responded to a noise complaint late Monday in the 2200 block of Mitchell Court.
Before contacting a man at the residence, the deputy listened in the dark for 10 to 15 minutes to see if he could determine who was making such loud noises just after 10 p.m., because it was the third such complaint this month.
When he approached the home, the man, Michael Patterson, 47, denied making any noises, though the deputy told him he heard loud talking and tools being used — “something like an air-powered ratchet and a loud crashing noise” — at the residence, according to the deputy’s report of the incident.
The deputy issued Patterson a summons on suspicion of violating the county’s noise ordinance because of so many complaints, prompting other subjects at the home to say they planned to report loud noises Patterson’s neighbors were making.
The deputy then advised Patterson to speak with his neighbors to resolve any issues so law enforcement wouldn’t have to be involved.
“Michael said he does not get along with his neighbors,” the report said.
Crews put out grease fire
The Grand Junction Fire Department extinguished a grease fire in the kitchen at a Strive Group Home in the 100 block of Elm Avenue on Monday, according to a department report.

The fire, which was partially contained because of a fire sprinkler system in the home, caused about $8,000 in damage.
