    Police arrested a man Wednesday, May 15, after he allegedly walked onto the property of a woman, who had a stalking injunction against him, and spoke with her landscaper. Police had been speaking with the man at his house regarding a separate incident when they were notified of the violation.

    The woman showed police security footage of the man about three to four feet inside her property line talking with her landscaper.

    When police returned to tell the man about the violation, he said that the stalking injunction was “the furthest thing from his mind when he went into [the woman’s] property,” according to a police report.

    The man said he had recently returned home after three weeks at a hospital in Grand Junction. He showed police that he had a drain bag on and said it was attached to his gallbladder. He also said that he had requested to testify in court regarding the stalking injunction.

    Since the stalking injunction was active, police arrested the man but had EMS assess him before jailing him.
