Theft of sky diving logbook, camera from car spoils Grand Junction man’s holiday

They ate well at Stephen Reay’s Fruitvale home Thursday, but weren’t thankful for this turkey.

That’s the person who, sometime Tuesday or Wednesday, apparently entered the parked car of Reay’s visiting daughter and made off with several thousand dollars in camera and video equipment.

More concerning to Reay’s family, however, was the apparent theft of a business logbook used by the boyfriend of Reay’s daughter to document sky diving trips as employees of Boulder-based Colorado Sky Sports.

“You can’t put a price on that book,” said Reay, 65, noting information about Colorado Sky Sports’ jumps are recorded in the logbook for tax purposes.

He’s asking for its return. “Just throw it in the front yard, no questions asked,” he said.

Reay’s daughter, Allison, lives in Broomfield and sky dives with her boyfriend. Both are employees of Colorado Sky Sports.

Her Toyota Corolla had been parked over several days in the driveway of her father’s home, 558 Shoshone St. When the couple drove to Moab, Utah, on Thursday for a day of sky diving, they noticed upon arriving that their equipment and the book were gone.

Reay said there were no signs of forced entry on the car.

Allison Reay used the camera and video equipment to record tandem sky dives. While Stephen Reay’s homeowner’s insurance policy will cover replacement costs for the gear, his main concern is the missing log book. “It’s like losing pictures in a fire,” he said.
