Menacing charge possible
The Grand Junction Police Department on Thursday said it will forward a case to the Mesa County District Attorney’s office for consideration of possible felony menacing charges against a bail bondsman who allegedly threatened several people with a handgun on Nov. 4.
Two alleged victims claim the bondsman, who left his business card behind, had forced his way into a home in the 600 block of South U.S. Highway 50 and pointed a gun at a woman and claimed he had an arrest warrant for one of them. Police later determined the wanted person wasn’t there. Police Thursday declined to identify the bondsman involved.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:
Someone forced entry at three vacant apartments in the 2900 block of Paula Lane, stealing items and causing damage to the tune of more than $1,000. The report was filed Nov. 1.
According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department:
A dog, valued at $75, was reported stolen Wednesday from Mesa County Animal Services, 971 Coffman Road in Whitewater.
A man in the 3200 block of Interstate 70 Business reported Wednesday he observed a man breaking a window on a vehicle and removing items valued at roughly $450. The report doesn’t indicate whether a suspect was contacted.
A woman in the 300 block of 29 Road reported Wednesday she received phone calls from an unknown man who wouldn’t answer questions, and he called her vulgar names.
A man reportedly walked into the Sheriff’s Department lobby Wednesday intoxicated and complaining of a recurring hernia.
