Due to the continuing dry conditions in Chaffee County combined with the continued windy conditions the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service has begun to look closely at the increased fire danger throughout our area. Although we do not meet all criteria for fire restrictions at this point if dry weather continues there is a good possibility that fire restrictions will be enacted, at least in the unincorporated areas of Chaffee County, in the near future.

With the upcoming Fourth of July holiday bringing increased visitors to our county along with the use of fireworks I want to remind both local citizens and our visitors to use extreme caution, whether you are camping and enjoying a fire or celebrating with fireworks. It takes one careless act or one unattended campfire to start a wildfire. Due to the increased numbers of fires burning in our state as well as across the country resources begin to become limited putting a strain on our firefighters and equipment available to fight fires.

I also want to remind everyone that no time are fireworks allowed in our national forests.

With that please have a fun and safe Fourth of July holiday weekend.

For more information please contact Chaffee County Sheriff dispatch 719-539-2596.

On today’s date at 7:18 pm the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a plane that had gone down in a field approximately ¼ mile north of Harriet Alexander Field, which is just west of Salida, Colorado.

Chaffee County Sheriff personnel responded to the scene and found a single engine Cessna 210 in the middle of a hay meadow. The pilot, Serena Welcher, age 34, from Page Arizona, had walked away from the crash and contacted emergency personnel.

She stated that on approach to the airport she experienced engine failure and lost power and set the plane down in the field making contact with a center pivot sprinkler system causing moderate to severe damage to both the plane and the sprinkler system. Welcher sustained no injuries.

On April 13, 2017 at approximately 2:07 pm the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a domestic disturbance between a father and son in the Granite area. The complainant advised that his son, Daniel J Korte, age 36 from Des Moines, Iowa was very intoxicated and had been threatening him with a large knife. The complainant also stated that his son made statements that he would shoot it out with police if they showed up. The complainant advised that his son was extremely agitated and was very delusional and would no doubt show hostility towards law enforcement. The complainant stated that there were firearms in his son’s possession as well in the home.

Deputies from the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and secured a perimeter with the assistance of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Due to the fact that the father was able to leave the home deputies attempted to make contact with the suspect via a cell phone, however this proved fruitless. Based on the threats the suspect made previously, the fact that he was armed and due to his aggressive nature the Chaffee County Tac Team was called to respond.

Upon arrival the tac team secured the perimeter and attempted to make contact with the suspect once again. After several attempts failed a percussion grenade was used outside the residence in an attempt to rouse the suspect in case he was sleeping due to his level of intoxication. A short time later the suspect came to the door but refused to come out stating that the only way he was coming out was if he was shooting. Tac personnel maintained verbal contact and were eventually able to persuade the suspect to exit the residence where he was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect was secured and was being led to a police vehicle when he became violent and kicked one of the tac team members in the face. The subject was then restrained further and was transported to the Chaffee County Detention Facility.

Daniel Korte will be charged with Felony Menacing, Assault to a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.

A search of the residence revealed that Korte was in possession of firearms in the residence, one of which was a loaded shotgun next to the door where he threatened to come out shooting.
