Crime log: Skis stolen from store

About $2,000 in skis were taken from Heavenly Valley Sports on Quaking Aspen Drive when thieves smashed a window to gain entrance, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy said.

Witnesses who were sledding nearby when the theft occurred saw a tan sports utility vehicle pass by the store twice before leaving the area on Dec. 14 about 2 a.m., the deputy said.

The vehicle returned with a black pickup and the two cars parked across the street from the store. The vehicle occupants crossed the street, broke the glass, returned to the cars and drove closer to the store to grab two pairs of black Rossignol Bandit X skis and a pair of white K2 Axis skis, the deputy said.
