Halloween surprise. The owner of a property on the 6600 block of West 29th Avenue, Wheat Ridge, called police to say he found a bone and bone fragments underneath the floor while he was working on an old home Oct. 31. The bones were collected and logged by local law enforcement pending further identification, according to a police report. Police reported the bones are likely from an animal.

Return to the scene. A man allegedly stole a $30 phone accessory from Mike’s Camera, 3830 Wadsworth Blvd., Wheat Ridge, on Oct. 22, according to a police report. Mike’s staff members called police the next day to report that the man was standing in front of the store. Responding officers learned the man had an active warrant for his arrest related to an open container citation. He was issued a summons for theft, police reported.

Game over. On Oct. 27, a detective noticed a man entering a residence on the 3700 block of Vance Street, Wheat Ridge, that was known to be the home of a suspect in a first-degree burglary case, according to a police report. When an officer attempted to contact the man, he looked in a window and saw two men crawling across the living room floor in an attempt to remain unseen, according to the report. While the detective waited for a search warrant, one man exited the home. He reportedly told police that no one else was in the house. He was uncooperative with police and taken into custody, according to the report. After a SWAT unit arrived at the house, the man hiding inside surrendered, police reported.

Destructive drivers. Wheat Ridge police responded to several alarms at a business on the 11400 block of West I-70 Frontage Road North on Oct. 27. According to police reports, officers found an abandoned, stolen Jeep at the scene. Based on surveillance footage, it appears two people backed the Jeep into the glass wall of a business, then left in a different car, according to a police report. It appeared that no merchandise was taken from the store, police said.
