Narcotics stolen from Aspen ski patrol shack – The Denver Post

Pain-management narcotics were stolen late Saturday or early Sunday from the ski patrol shack atop Buttermilk Ski Area, Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said Monday.

The drugs, which are used by ski patrol to treat people seriously injured on the mountain, were taken from a safe that was locked when ski patrol members left Saturday evening, DiSalvo said. He declined to say whether the safe was forced open or if the thief knew the safe combination or had a key.

The building did not appear to show signs of forced entry, the sheriff said.

“It appears (Aspen Skiing Co.) did everything they could to secure these … narcotics,” he said.

DiSalvo refused to name the types of drugs or the amounts taken, citing an open investigation into the incident. He also said he did not know how much the drugs were worth.
