Arrest at library

Police have arrested a 45-year-old man on state charges of bias-motivated crime and harassment after a verbal confrontation that occurred shortly before 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4, at the Main Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave. The suspect is accused of yelling obscenities, using racial slurs and making threatening comments at a library employee who had informed him it was closing time and he needed to leave. The victim in this case is of African descent.

The crime was reported to police the following morning when the employee returned to work and saw the suspect outside the library. The suspect was contacted by officers and the victim made a positive identification.

The suspect, identified as Manuel Rodriguez-Calanche, date of birth of Feb. 2, 1965, was initially arrested on municipal charges. After consultation with the District Attorney’s Office and prior to his first court appearance, those charges were dismissed and replaced with state charges of bias-motivated crime and harassment, both of which are misdemeanors. He was booked into the Boulder County Jail. Bond was set at $2,500.

The case number for this incident is 10-12318.

Riding with The King – In A Police Car
Sept. 24, 2010
Just sent in my app for the Boulder Police Dept’s “Ride Along” program. If they accept me this will be the first time I’ll be in a Police car without the cuff’s on.

I think this is a very cool program. I mean, it’s not everyday you can actually “ride along” with an On-Duty Police Officer. That means if there’s a call for a cop and my officer is nearby – I could be first on the scene. This poses all kinds of excitement and fear. Here’s my list of things I hope I get to be in on. And things I hope to avoid.

Excitement:

Arresting a city politician for any reason. Like chewing gum too loudly.
Cat up a tree. I wanna see if BPD saw Steve Martin’s Roxanne and just opens a can of cat food at the base of the tree.
I’ll be able to count how many times we stop for coffee and doughnuts.
CU Campus food riot.
Report of woman mowing lawn naked.
Fear:

Report of a man mowing lawn naked.
Fatal auto accident.
Riot at Boulder County Jail.
Osama Bin Laden spotted at Mustard’s Last Stand.
A routine background check on a speeder turns up an old warrant on me.
If they accept me I promise a full report. In return if they arrest me and I need bail money – you promise to ante up!

More to come…

Boulder police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect in an attempted child enticement that occurred at approximately 4:45 a.m. on Wednesday,  July 28, in the area of Valmont and Airport roads. An adult male driving an older, small, green, four-door sedan contacted a 15-year-old boy who was riding his bicycle. The driver asked the boy his age and his name and then offered to perform a sexual act.  When the boy declined, the man offered to pay him. The boy declined again and the suspect drove away.

The suspect was described as 25 to 40 years old with dark skin.  The boy described the man as being large, but not fat, with a “big, round head” that was balding.  The driver had thick eyebrows and was clean shaven.  He spoke with an unknown accent.
