May 29, 2014
Steamboat Springs — Routt County Undersheriff Ray Birch said a prank phone call led them to assemble the SWAT team and enter a home to “check the welfare of the residents” Wednesday night in Stagecoach.
Birch said someone called Routt County Communications, and at about 8:40 p.m., the SWAT team was assembled to respond to 31445 Shoshone Way.
When the SWAT team entered the home, they found the residents were “safe and secure.”
“We are currently conducting an investigation to identify the original caller and are not in the position to release any further details, except to say we do not believe any community members are at risk,” Birch stated in an email.
