MADRIDRecently, the Grand Junction Police Department identified a pattern of a burglaries in downtown areas of the City, where homes were being entered when the residents were away, and women’s undergarments and accessories were stolen. Last night, the Grand Junction Police Department arrested a suspect in these crimes.

During increased patrol of the areas where the crimes have been reported, officers and detectives with the Grand Junction Police Department arrested a male for stealing a purse out of a vehicle in the area. Additional investigation, as well as a search subsequent to his arrest, revealed a bag of women’s clothing in his possession, to include women’s underwear.  Upon inspection of the items by one of the victims of the burglaries, she was able to identify articles of her clothing in possession of the male.

    Way to go GJPD!! This sort of theft is scary. I just wish he could be charged with a sex offense, since this is a clue to what he is capable of. But I know that’s not how the law works. We just have to hope the judge throws the book at him so he doesn’t have a chance to become a predator.

    Well done, GJPD. The possibility of these crimes escalating was very real.
