SUMMIT COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE INVESTIGATING REPORT OF SKI PATROL IMPERSONATOR FOLLOWING A FEMALE MINOR AT COPPER MOUNTAIN

 

SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating a report of a female minor who was followed from a ski run last week, by an unidentified adult male impersonating a Ski Patroller. The unidentified adult male was wearing a red jacket with “Ski Patrol” written poorly on the outside, in what appeared to be sharpie marker. The unidentified adult male followed the minor from the Center Village towards the East Village, where she was able to elude him. This incident went unreported to the Sheriff’s Office until late Tuesday evening, January 25, 2022 and is currently an active investigation. 

 Summit County Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons stated, “The odds of solving a case can drop by 50% in the first 48 hours after a crime is committed, therefore it is imperative to any investigation that both victims and witnesses report a crime to law enforcement immediately.”
