Douglas County sheriff briefs


Burglars hit area homes

Three residential thefts were reported to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office from May 20 to May 22.

A house that was being rented out in the 1400 block of Finn Avenue in the McArthur Ranch subdivision of unincorporated Douglas County was burglarized May 20 while it was in the process of being remodeled for the new tenants. Taken from the garage of the home were a dishwasher, microwave and oven that were being stored while new flooring was being installed inside the home.

Also on May 20, a resident of the 7300 block of Brixham Circle in Castle Pines had metal chairs stolen from the front porch overnight.

Additionally, on May 22, deputies responded to the 10600 block of Cherrybrook Circle in Highlands Ranch on a report of stolen golf clubs valued at $2,000. The vehicle parked in the garage was also rummaged through, but the homeowner said nothing was taken from it.

Restrooms vandalized

Graffiti was reported on the interior walls of a restroom at Timberline Park in Highlands Ranch on May 21 and a toilet seat and stool were reported to be dislodged from a restroom floor at Paintbrush Park in Castle Rock on that same day.

‘Wag Your Tail’ set

Benefiting the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, the first-ever “Wag Your Tail” Dog Walk and Barbecue is planned for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 22 at Hidden Mesa Open Space in Franktown. There will be food, fun, fitness, booths and K9 demonstrations.

The cost is $25 for adults, $8 for kids ages 12 and younger, and no charge for man’s best friend — but he or she must be on leash and a proof of rabies vaccination will be required at check-in. For more information or to pre-register, please visit
