Cops blotter: ‘Bob’ is behind the wheel
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN ” Jacqueline “Christina” Adelle Oelheim, 63, of Aspen, claimed that someone named “Bob” was driving when Pitkin County Sheriff’s deputies stopped her outside of Alpine Market at the Airport Business Center, according to a report.
But Bob never showed.
Deputies responded to a call of a woman who nearly hit two kids and then knocked over a trash can. The woman also threatened an employee at the market when confronted, according to the report.
Deputies arrived to find Oelheim, who matched witness descriptions.
She later admitted to deputies that she had been driving the olive green Jeep Cherokee involved in the incident. Deputies asked Oelheim to perform a roadside sobriety test which they allege she failed, then arrested her and took her to the Pitkin County jail.
Officers responded to reports of a fight at Little Annie’s Eating House in Aspen and found three men matching suspect descriptions. Charles Russell Joseph Burns, 23, of Las Vegas, said he knocked off someone’s glasses in a scuffle and officers arrested him for disorderly conduct.
A woman minding her son at the Rio Grande Skate Park called police to report a man she said had been shooting bottle rockets. The woman said she asked the man to stop firing the missiles, which he did, but he then fired a rocket at the woman from his car before speeding off.
Two days later, the woman called police, and officers arrested a man matching the description, Aaron Gabriel Hooper, 31, of Snowmass Village, for disorderly conduct and for unlawfully shooting bottle rockets.
An Aspen officer arrested Zachary Taylor, 21, of Carbondale, for urinating in an alley off Main Street. Taylor said he was about to get on a bus and couldn’t “hold it anymore,” according to the report.
An Aspen officer issued a municipal summons to Matthew Gering, 19, after Gering allegedly admitted to stealing four Red Bull energy drinks from City Market in Aspen.

Gov. Jared Polis announced Wednesday that via executive order he has suspended collection of the 2.9% sales tax that businesses must typically return to the government. That means businesses affected by the executive order — bars, restaurants and food trucks — can hang onto an extra $2.90 per $100 in revenue.
