Ms. Lewis was placed into custody and remanded to the the Mesa County Jail, on charges of Burglary, Possession of Burglary Tools, and Theft.
The Grand Junction Police Department and the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office are working on a joint investigation into multiple burglaries that have occurred in the Redlands area of Mesa County. Several residential burglaries, as well as thefts from automobiles, have been reported in the last few weeks. Some of the burglaries give law enforcement additional concern because some of the victims report a male suspect has entered the homes while the residents were present.
In most cases, access to the homes has been through unlocked or unsecured doors and windows. Items stolen have ranged from firearms to jewelry, to cash and credit cards, as well as other small items. The burglaries are occurring during the late evening and early morning hours.
Both agencies are actively working together to identify the subject(s) involved. We are asking for the community’s assistance by making sure all doors and windows are locked and secured at all times. Also, leave exterior lights on at night. In addition, make sure your cars are locked and secure. Make sure items of value are not visible, and be watchful of your property and that of your neighbors. As always, report any suspicious activity to law enforcement by calling 911, or (970)242-6707, for non-emergency dispatch.
