2:01 p.m. A previous offender reportedly pawned a .22-caliber rifle at a shop in downtown Steamboat Springs. The pawnshop owner did not realize the person had a previous felony or domestic violence charge at first, but later reported the incident to police, who are investigating it.

2:52 p.m. Fraud was reported in the 400 block of South Lincoln Avenue, where a man was applying for a job.
