Warning Issued About Dangerous Bottles

Bottles Being Found Along River

The Garfield County Sheriff's Office has issued a health alert, after bottles containing hazardous material have been found by people along Colorado river banks.

Below is the alert issued by the Sheriff's Office:


Over the past week, residents of Garfield, Eagle, and Pitkin Counties have encountered an influx of bottles turning up on river banks.  The bottles are similar in size to a water bottle but are easily recognizable as they have all been mostly encapsulated in duct tape. 
In most instances, the bottles have been filled with a blue or purple liquid and a paper-like substance.  The contents of the bottles are corrosive and flammable; furthermore, the contents are hazardous to human health
If encountered, do not move, touch, or open the bottles.  Instead, note the location and immediately contact your local law enforcement representatives.
