The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is investigating numerous reports of abandoned mobile homes that have been dumped at various locations throughout northeast Weld County.

The abandoned trailers were first reported Sunday, Feb. 2. Since then, deputies have located seven mobile home trailers abandoned on county roads, in pastures and on private property. Most of the trailers have been dumped in northeast Weld County near the towns of Briggsdale and Hereford.

Several mobile homes were abandoned on Weld County Road 77 between Weld roads 110 and 136. Others were dumped on Colo. 14 and Weld 390, in the Pawnee National Grassland between Keota and Buckingham. Another was dumped north of the Colorado-Wyoming border.

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office has identified the person responsible for dumping the mobile homes. That person has already picked up several trailers, but more remain at locations throughout the county.

The sheriff’s office is working in collaboration with the county attorney’s office, planning and zoning, and public works to continue to expedite a resolution.

The sheriff’s office is asking the public to report any additional sightings of abandoned trailers by calling non-emergency dispatch at (970) 350-9600, prompt 4.
