Car windows shattered on both C-470 and Hwy 285

Three incidents reported since July

MORRISON, Colo - The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office has a real mystery on their hands.

Since July 24, they received three reports from citizens whose windows were shattered as they drove on either C-470 near Alameda Parkway or on U.S. Highway 285 near Highway 8.

On July 24, a man was driving east on C-470 at Alameda Parkway when the passenger window of his truck shattered. No one was injured and no projectile was found.

On Nov. 14, a man was driving south on U.S. Highway 285 near Highway 8 when he heard a gunshot and the driver’s side window shattered. No one was injured and no projectile was found.

On Tuesday, a woman was driving west on C-470 near the Alameda Parkway when she heard a "loud boom" and the rear driver’s side window shattered. No one was injured and no projectile was found.

"It was my first impulse was to duck and hide," said Wendy Soble.   "My first impulse was I thought got shot, because it happened in a split second.  But I ducked and that's first impulse to do.  When you hear a loud crash around you."

In mid-November the Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of S. Turkey Creek Rd. and Hwy. 8 after a woman reported seeing a man firing a gun across the highway from a brown or gold colored 4-door Honda sedan. Deputies were unable to locate the man.

It is unclear whether any of these incidents are related to one another.

"The location and their similarity are hard to ignore.  There does come a point where we think it's important for citizens to be aware," said Jefferson County spokeswoman Jacki Kelly.

The Sheriff’s Office has increased patrol along these roadways, and is asking for the public’s help in reporting any suspicious activity in these areas. If anyone has information regarding these crimes, they are asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 303-271-5612.
