What a day of events in town. A lot of thefts were reported from wallets, license plates, to even a pet cat on this day. This is bringing a bad name to our town, and this crime needs to stop immediately. Once again a suspicious vehicle with lights on and running with no one in it was reported. I think maybe the caller thought the car was on auto-drive, and could maybe drive away on its own, or then again maybe it was a REPO opportunity for a creditor, and the owner was willing to give up the car right then and there. Also, an assault was reported a year late, that is very late I would think. If I were assaulted I'd report it immediately, but then again this is Steamboat! Finally, the paintball incident on the trailer is another reminder of the crime wave we see right now here. I'd say this qualifies as suspicious, but good thing no damage was reported.
