Fruita Church reports theft
An employee at Sacred Heart Catholic Church told the Fruita Police Department on Sunday that someone took about $4,000 in checks and cash from its weekend collection.
One of the church priests noticed the collection plate was missing, according to police.
Police were unsure whether someone entered the church, which is located at 513 E. Aspen Ave., and took the money, or someone authorized to be in the building took it.
Men fight at restaurant
Grand Junction police broke up a fight between two men Wednesday that started inside Los Jilbertos, 2812 North Ave., continued in the foyer of the restaurant and ended outside.
The fight apparently started when Gabriel Rivera, 26, made an allegedly disparaging remark about the father of Roy Powell, 23, who then got up and punched Rivera four or five times, according to police reports.
Police placed Rivera in a patrol vehicle because they believed he was about to start the fight again in front of them, the reports said.
