Sears truck rolls into front of home on Saratoga
A Steamboat residence got more than its owners ordered Thursday afternoon when a Sears' delivery truck rolled into the front of the home.
Assistant Police Chief Art Feibing said the truck was put in park but then started rolling toward the home at 1168 Saratoga Ave. The truck slammed into the front door, doing significant structural damage to the house.
The accident was reported about 1 p.m. Thursday. No one was inside the truck when it hit the house, and no one was injured.

Judge delays marijuana decision for attorneys
A county judge has delayed contempt hearings for officers who didn't return a Hayden's man medicinal marijuana as ordered, giving attorneys involved in the case more time to respond to the U.S. District Court.
U.S. District Judge Walker Miller said in federal court Thursday he hoped to rule before the officers were scheduled to appear in Routt County Court on Monday but that he would delay his decision if that state court appearance also could be delayed.
Routt County Judge James Garrecht continued the contempt hearings until March 21, giving Hayden resident Don Nord's attorney, Kristopher Hammond, until Feb. 12 to respond with a written argument to the federal court. The U.S. Attorney's Office, representing the officers, has until Feb. 17 to reply.
The federal agent and the five officers from the Grand, Routt and Moffat Narcotics Enforcement Team who took marijuana during a mid-October search and have not returned it were issued contempt citations by Garrecht for not obeying an order to return the drugs, which Nord is allowed to have under a Colorado law.
The Colorado medicinal marijuana law is in direct conflict with federal drug laws that prohibit use of the drug.
