Englewood Police Reports
Call leads to drug arrest
When a business owner complained to police that a woman had been in the restroom for more than an hour and wouldn’t leave, the investigation led the arrest of the woman for possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
The police were called about 3:45 p.m. to the business in the 4100 block of South Broadway. According to the police report, when officers checked on the 31-year-ld woman she began flushing items down the toilet.
She was taken into custody and officer found she had material in her possession that tested positive for methamphetamine as well as drug paraphernalia. She was arrested, taken to the Englewood Police station and later taken to Swedish Medical Center because she was reportedly showing extreme drug-withdrawal symptoms. She was released to the medical center staff and the information about the case was forwarded to the Arapahoe County Impact Team.
Helicopter lands on field
On June 23, when an Air National Guard UH 60 Blackhawk helicopter transporting an injured climber found it couldn’t land at Swedish Medical Center, the pilot chose to land on the Englewood High School football.
Englewood resident Jim Woodward said the entire neighborhood turned out when the helicopter came over low and settled on the field.
“Once it was on the ground, Englewood paramedics came to take the climber who was injured in a fall in the mountings by ambulance to the hospital,” the Englewood mayor pro tem said.
Because of construction on the new campus, there is no way a vehicle can get into the stadium. Woodward’s son Jason unlocked the gate so the paramedics could get onto the field, put the climber on a gurney, bring him back to the ambulance and take him to Swedish.
