Police blotter: Nov. 26, 2009
The Mesa County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a burglary that occurred at a North Avenue trailer park Tuesday night.
Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Heather Benjamin said a man entered a trailer at the Rose Park Mobile Home Village, 2910 North Ave., while the owner was at home but immediately left after being confronted by the homeowner, who was armed with a handgun.
The man was wearing a mask or facial covering and a hooded sweatshirt. Two tracking dogs were brought to the scene, but they didn’t lead police to a suspect, Benjamin said.
The man didn’t take anything from the trailer, she said.
