The Garfield County Crime Stoppers board of directors wishes to express its sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of our last three fundraisers: two rafting trips and the dunk tank at National Night Out. Special thanks to the following rafting sponsors: Williams Production Inc.; White Water Rafting; Wells Fargo Bank; Peppino’s Pizza; and Shadetree Enterprises. Also special thanks to Ross Talbott for the use of the dunk tank and especially to all of the members of the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office who donated their time to support these events.

After being dormant for nine years, Crime Stoppers of Garfield County Inc. was restarted on July 29, 2007. Since then we have received 64 tips that have resulted in 16 arrests pertaining to 38 crimes that involved more than $80,000 of damaged or stolen property and felony crimes including auto thefts, commercial burglary, illicit drug distribution and fugitives. We have paid out $3,750 in tips from the funds contributed by the Garfield County community.

We have recently paid out rewards for the critical tips that helped solve an extensive spree of burglaries and thefts of items worth thousands of dollars in our county. Paying these rewards do deplete our funds, and we look to the community’s support to continue this public service.

Please remember, if you have information that can solve a crime, remain anonymous and contact us by Internet at, or by phone at (970) 945-0101. Again, thank you for your support.

Dave Ruechel and the board of directors
