SHERIFF'S CALLS

Rub-a-dub-dub …

SOUTH JEFFCO — The temperature in the Denver area reached a balmy 93 degrees on June 22, but things got even hotter in an off-limits hot tub occupied by two lovebirds on June 23. A deputy was dispatched to the Fairways apartment complex on West Bowles Avenue about 2:15 a.m. that morning, after a complex security guard found two young lovers in the hot tub. The male half of the duo admitted that the couple knew they weren’t supposed to be in the tub, and he apologized. The deputy pointed out that signs on the gate to the fenced pool area clearly said “No trespassing or loitering,” and identified the hours as being from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The early-morning soakers each earned a summons for second-degree trespassing and were sent away to cool down.

Her basement’s a tub

SOUTH JEFFCO — A South Jeffco woman was the victim of punks gone bored June 20, when she noticed that someone had turned on her outside garden hose and placed the business end in an open basement window. When a deputy arrived, the woman reported that she thought she heard the sound of running water, so she went outside to investigate. She noticed the hose was on, and hurried back inside and down to the basement. Once there, she noticed that water was “pouring in” the window. She then quickly turned the hose off. The incident is suspicious, the woman said, because last summer she was charged by the water company for 70,000 gallons she claims she didn’t use. She also said she doesn’t have any enemies among her neighbors, and has no clue why anybody would do such a thing. She wasn’t necessarily interested in pressing charges, either — but she did want the deputy to log a report that she could file with the water company.
