Phone tracked to Parker home
A Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the Parker Police Department around 10 p.m. Oct. 5 to meet with a man who reported his phone stolen. The man said he was at LoDo’s Bar in Highlands Ranch with a friend. His iPhone 5s was sitting on the table when a blond female approached and talked to them.
There were other people who stopped by his table and spoke with him and his friend. He could not find the phone when he was ready to leave. He wasn’t sure if the phone was taken intentionally or by mistake. He tracked his phone on his laptop to an address in the 11200 block of Glenmoor Court in Parker.
The deputy responded to the house and spoke to a man who acknowledged being at LoDo’s earlier in the night with his girlfriend. The man appeared highly intoxicated and had slurred speech, according to the deputy’s report. The deputy asked them to go through their vehicle, purse, and the clothing they wore that night just to be sure they didn’t have the phone.
The man said would empty his pockets, saying he had “nothing to hide.” He reached into his left rear pocket and pulled out two cell phones. The man stared at the phones in his hand and said, “Why do I have two wallets?” and “The black one isn’t mine.” The victim decided not to press charges and the deputy did not have sufficient evidence that the phone was taken on purpose.
