Deputy Jerad Velasquez was dispatched to a storage area in the county on March 23 at about 8:15 a.m. in regard to a reported theft. Upon arrival he spoke to the reporting party who indicated that two trucks had the diesel fuel stolen out of them overnight along with two sets of batteries. Estimated value of the stolen items was $1,700. Some bolt cutters were dusted for prints as were the fuel caps of the vehicles.

On March 22 at about 8:30 a.m. Deputy Jerad Velasquez was dispatched to a Mesa location in regard to a stolen vehicle. Upon arrival Deputy Velasquez spoke to the reporting party who indicated on March 21 they had parked their car in the carport on their property. This morning (3-22) the RP’s spouse indicated they didn’t see the car. The value of the vehicle is about $4,000. Both sets of keys were in the residence. The vehicle was entered into NCIC/CCIC as stolen.

At about 9:45 a.m. on March 20, Sergeant Ben Parsons contacted a party in the Beulah area by phone in regard to a fraud. The reporting party indicated their credit union savings account had been hacked and monies had been taken since September 2019.

The RP indicated the account was a “rainy day” account and they didn’t monitor it often but that over $17,000 had been taken. The RP called the fraud department of the credit union and found out an individual named “Carla” had been granted access to the account on several occasions. Because of the time lapse the credit union indicated the RP would not be reimbursed. The RP will forward paper work from the credit union when it is received.

On Thursday March 19 at about 1:30 p.m. Deputy Steven Chavez responded to a Pueblo West address in regard to a fraudulent activity. The reporting party indicated that they had a credit card with a local credit union.

On March 13 or 14 the RP had entered a Pueblo West business and used an ATM. The RP was contacted by his bank later the same day and told their credit card had been used for three charges they had not made. The total of the charges was $232.78.

Deputy Chavez contacted the institution that owned the ATM and viewed surveillance video. Nothing suspicious was noted. The RP contacted Deputy Chavez and told him the bank had stopped the transactions and they had been reversed and the RP got all of his money back.
