Man accused of tire theft

A Grand Junction man was issued a summons early Monday morning on suspicion of trespassing at the Mesa County Landfill and stealing a pair of tire rims.

David Fontaine, 20, 1330 N. 24th St., could be charged with second-degree criminal trespass, second-degree criminal tampering, theft of less than $500 and driving with a revoked license, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies were called to the landfill, 3071 U.S. Highway 50, about 4:15 a.m. and found the gate to the composting facility had been unlocked.

They then contacted Fontaine in a vehicle at the facility and found him in possession of two rims with the tires attached, sheriff’s spokeswoman Lisa McCammon said.

Fontaine was uncooperative when deputies contacted him, she said.

According to the Grand Junction Police Department:

Miguel Angel Martinez, 22, 526 Florence Road, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of second-degree burglary, criminal impersonation, driving as a habitual traffic offender, driving under the influence of alcohol, second-degree criminal trespass and several traffic offenses after he was contacted in the area of 30 Road and the Interstate 70 Business Loop.

Manuel De Jesus Galindo-Maldonado, 24, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of first-degree auto theft, theft of between $1,000 and $10,000, violation of a protection order and possession of drug paraphernalia after he was contacted in the 400 block of Glen Road.

According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department:

A woman living in the 400 block of Coronado Court reported Sunday that two men spray painted a fence, then left the area on foot. Damage to the fence was estimated at $100.
