Patrol crackdown continues
The Colorado State Patrol will be out in force through Tuesday as part of the Labor Day Holiday DUI enforcement effort.
In 2012, 13 people died and more than 1,400 were arrested as a result of alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes or impaired driving throughout the state, according to the Colorado State Patrol. High-visibility enforcement reduces impaired driving fatalities by up to 20 percent, the patrol said.
The Labor Day “Heat Is On” campaign concludes a summerlong effort to crack down on impaired driving with sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols and increased enforcement across Colorado.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:
■ Bicycles valued at more than $300 were stolen near the 1700 block of Bunting Avenue on Monday night.
■ Property valued at less than $50 was stolen from a residence in the 500 block of 28 1/2 Road early Wednesday
■ Robert Cook, 62, was issued a summons Friday morning in the 2800 block of North Avenue on suspicion of assault.
