Infant in good condition

A Montrose infant who police feared was badly injured after falling out of a cart over the weekend is healthy and in good condition.

Police were looking for a 1994 Ford Escort station wagon. Witnesses said the baby fell out of a cart Saturday and was bleeding from the nose and mouth, and the mother picked up the baby and left in the car.

Cmdr. Gene Lillard said Tuesday officers responded to a home in Montrose after receiving a tip and interviewed the mother and took pictures of the baby. Lillard said the baby was strapped into a car seat when it fell but that the baby’s face didn’t strike the sidewalk, as it was initially suggested.

“The baby appeared healthy and in good shape,” he said. “Initially we had gotten gloom and doom that the baby was hurt pretty bad.”

According to the Grand Junction Police Department:

Items valued at more than $1,000 were taken Monday from a trailer in the 2800 block of Grand Falls Drive.

Items valued at less than $1,000 were taken Monday from the Grand River Humane Society, 2651 U.S. Highway 50.

According to the Fruita Police Department:

Sarah Ann Cozza, 19, 697 Mineral Court, Fruita, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary of a building, theft of between $500 to $1,000, and criminal mischief.
