Pueblo Fire Stations Offer Safe Haven for Infants

Posted to PIO Blog by Bobby Cuomo

The story all over the news Wednesday afternoon, December 5, is about a baby girl, about a month or so old, found in a dumpster in Colorado Springs.  The baby was taken to a Springs hospital, and last reports say she is stable and okay.  At this time, no one knows who the mother is, what the circumstances surrounding the incident or much more about the baby.  We do know one thing.  The State of Colorado has the "Safe Haven Law"  This law allows a parent to hand over an infant, up to 72 hours old, to an employee of a fire station or hospital with absolutely no questions asked.  As long as the baby has not been hurt in any way, the parent will face no prosecution and can simply walk away.  This could have been an much worse situation if our weather had not been so warm and the child had gone unnoticed for hours.  If that had happened, we'd be shaking our heads, at the very least, over a very different outcome.  Every one of the fire stations in Pueblo is a safe haven for anyone who feels the need to surrender a child.  All you have to do is give the baby to a fire station employee. In the state, 35 babies have been saved under the "Safe Haven Law".  It's a statute not designed to make any judgments, but to save lives.  For more information, you can go to the website at

Shots Fired Recovered MVT 1134 Pine 23-004635

Posted to PPD Public Blog by Kai Moore

On 3-12-23 Comm. Center received several calls of shots being fired in the 1100 blk of Pine. No units were available to respond until approximately 2024 hrs. Officer Hockaday and Cardona arrived on scene first and observed two males run from a parked Hyundai with Oklahoma plate (FSA514) in front of 1134 Pine. They ran toward the side of 1134 and it was believed they went inside but exited out a rear window. Due to the availability of officers a perimeter wasn’t able to be established in time to contact possible parties on foot in the area. Both males were described as white or Hispanic and the driver appeared to be tall and slender wearing a light-colored shirt or hoody.

It was learned the plate on the Hyundai had just been stolen and the car had also come back stolen upon clearing the VIN. Purple in color chalk graffiti was also present on the dash of the car that read “Sur” , “551” and “Gulipsy.”

A neighborhood canvas was conducted and video of the incident with the initial shots fired were recovered. It appears several people were coming and going from 1134 Pine. Tow males were out front and one of them was working on a car (Mercedes). A gold in color Cadillac passes a couple of times with loud music. The male who wasn’t working on the car begins to shoot down the street toward what is believed to be the Cadillac. The male is seen running back toward either 1132 or 1134 Pine and the video ends. Seven 9mm shell casings and a projectile were recovered on scene.

In early January 1134 Pine (23-00842) was under the ownership of housing and multiple people were contacted with active warrants. Owner information couldn’t be located this evening by attempts from dispatch. According to the County Assessor page nothing populated either for owner information at 1132 or 1134 Pine. No one answered at either address.

A few weeks back 1134 Pine was believed to be the residence of a potential kidnapping that occurred or started from (23-004006) but negative contact was made there also. Neighbors indicated there is a lot of traffic coming and going at all hours of the day and night from 1134 but didn’t know names of the individuals residing there.

Please keep 1134 as well as 1132 Pine in mind for further hot spot criminal activity.
