Person dies in Moab fire

One person is dead after a fire Friday morning destroyed a trailer home in Cisco, Utah, according to the Grand County Sheriff’s Department.

The victim was found inside a mobile home at 100 Pennsylvania Avenue and has not been identified. The body was taken to the medical examiner in Salt Lake City, the Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

The cause of the fire is being investigated. It was reported at 4:07 a.m., the news release said.

Vehicles sprayed with rocks

Dennis Juan Lujan, II, 27, 408 Bristol Court, was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of criminal mischief of between $1,000 and $20,000, a parole violation, aggravated driving as a habitual offender and driving under the influence, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.

Lujan has been accused of driving a silver pickup and spraying rocks, gravel and dust at cars parked at an apartment complex on 33 Road around 6:30 p.m. Damage to the vehicles’ paint and windshields was estimated at $1,550, according to Lujan’s arrest affidavit.

Around 8 p.m., Lujan was seen driving the same silver truck when he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop and arrested on suspicion of DUI, the Sheriff’s Department said.

According to the Grand Junction Police Department:

A vandal caused nearly $4,000 in damage and stole property from a construction site at 1316 College Place near Mesa State College on Saturday.

A thief broke into a home in the 2600 block of Mazatlan Drive on Saturday, damaging property and stealing electronic items and a vehicle. The vehicle was found Sunday.
