The Saguache County Sheriff’s Office fielded more than 70 calls during the week. In addition to handling a deceased person and a missing person, office personnel performed search and rescue operations, assisted stranded motorists, and helped with traffic accidents (some requiring ambulances).

Sheriff Dan Warwick said they conduct “welfare checks” when concerned parties call to ask for someone to check on another county resident. Sheriff Warwick and deputies also look out for residents during routine town patrols and calls to homes for civil disputes, animal problems and noise complaints.

The Sheriff’s Office assisted other agencies, and personnel helped with training exercises in Center.

Other calls to dispatch ranged from criminal mischief, suspicious activity, trespassing, harassment, disorderly conduct, “paper service” (for example, eviction notices), and a “controlled burn.” In Moffat, Crestone, Villa Grove and Saguache, stolen vehicles, abandoned vehicles and traffic violations required attention.
