Update to Felony Menacing That Resulted in Crash at CMU #GVCopBeat

Posted on

We continue to search for the two additional suspects in this case (previously released information can be found here), and believe they may be connected to three auto thefts that happened early this morning in and around Grand Junction.  We have also learned the white Jeep SUV they crashed on the CMU campus was stolen in Alamosa.

At approximately 5:45 this morning, we received a call of a stolen Chevy Equinox in the 500 block of 28 1/4.  We found a black Volkswagon Passat on scene that had been stolen earlier from the 700 block of Elm Ave.

Approximately 10 minutes later we received a report of a stolen Audi in the 500 block of W. Greenfield Cir.  The suspects had ditched the Equinox at that location.

Mesa County Sheriff’s Office deputies spotted the stolen Audi going into the Candlewood Mobile Home Park in Clifton and set up a perimeter.  They found the Audi abandoned in the mobile home park but were not able to find the suspects.

In total we believe the suspects have been involved with at least four auto thefts (Jeep, Volkswagon, Chevy, Audi).  Of those stolen vehicles we know at least two were left running unattended (puffing) at the time of the theft. The MCSO sent out a Community Notification message early this morning to residents near the Candlewood Mobile Home Park telling them to make sure their cars were locked and not to leave them running unattended.

If you have information about the identity or location of these suspects you can report it anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 970-241-7867 or online at 241STOP.com.

This is in addition to the handful of “puffer” vehicles stolen earlier this week and last weekend. (Previously released information can be found here). […]
