‘Trespasser’ feeds horses
An owner of two horses in the 5300 block of Purdy Mesa Road reported Sunday afternoon that someone was throwing hay over a fence to feed their horses, and trespassing on his property, according to a report from the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.
An animal control officer visited the property Sunday morning after a citizen complained about the welfare of the horses and a dog on the property but found nothing wrong, the report said.
A deputy told the owners that if the problem continues, a trail camera could be placed on the property to identify who allegedly is trespassing and feeding the horses, the report said.
Wife cited in harassment
Kayla Vonettamarie Edmondson, 20, 780 N.W. Birch in Cedaredge, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of harassment and reckless endangerment after her husband called dispatch to report Edmondson allegedly was following him around and hit his truck with her car, according to a report from the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.
A deputy found both vehicles Tuesday morning driving westbound on F Road near Holland Avenue and pulled both Edmondson and her husband over in the vehicles each was driving, the report said.
When asked why she was following her husband, Edmondson told a deputy she was trying to serve him divorce papers, but he refused to take them.
Edmondson’s husband told the deputy that he wouldn’t sign divorce papers because he wanted an annulment of their marriage of a “few months” instead, the report said.
According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department:
■ Thomas Norris, 38, and Billy Verley, 38, addresses unknown, were given trespass notices Tuesday to never return to Triple Tree Tavern, 201 Second St., in Clifton, after an altercation broke out when both showed up “extremely intoxicated,” and Norris allegedly tried to punch the female bartender when she refused to serve him.
■ Sometime within the past week, someone drove off the road into an orchard in the area of F Road and 37 1/4 Road, breaking a peach tree limb and a sprinkler head, causing approximately $200 in damage.
