The Grand Junction Police Department has arrested a second person believed to have been acting as an accomplice to a 16-year-old who was arrested for stealing two rifles from Cabela’s on July 29, 2014.  22-year-old Adam James Rodriguez of Clifton is in the Mesa County Jail on theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor charges.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video of two male subjects in the “gun library” area of the store.  One of the males, believed to be 16-year-old Florencio Gonzalez, is seen hiding the two rifles in his pant legs.  A second male, believed to be Rodriguez, appears to be acting as a lookout.  As part of the investigation two witnesses were shown the surveillance video and both identified the second person as Rodriguez and that they had seen him earlier at a residence with Gonzalez.

When officers contacted Rodriguez he admitted to being present during the theft and knowledge of the theft after he saw Gonzalez remove the rifles from his pants.  He denied seeing the theft in the store occur.  Based on the video footage, investigators do not believe Rodriguez could have missed the theft occurring.

GJPD School Resource Officers Arrest 16- year-old For Stealing Rifles From Local Sporting Goods Store #GVCopbeat

Posted on

Grand Junction Police Department school resource officers arrested a 16-year-old Tuesday night after investigating a theft case involving two rifles that were stolen from Cabela’s yesterday.

We were notified at about 3:30 Tuesday afternoon of at least one suspected juvenile who stole the two rifles by hiding them in his pants and walking out of the store.  At this time we believe he may have had an accomplice who distracted employees while the suspect hid the rifles in his pants.

Two school resource officers took the case and began investigating. Using surveillance video from the store and information about a possible vehicle the suspect or suspects were in, the school resource officers were able to identify a house possibly associated with one of the suspects. The officers obtained consent to go inside, and while inside they found the stolen rifles, but no suspects.

Later in the evening they received information that one of the suspects had returned to the house and the SROs again responded there. They attempted to contact the suspect but he took off running. The officers took him into custody after a short foot chase. They also recovered a third stolen gun that had been taken from a pawn shop, inside the home.

The suspect, 16-year-old Florencio Gonzalez of Clifton, was screened into the Division of Youth Corrections on charges of possession of a firearm by a juvenile- repeat offender, obstruction, theft, violation of a restraining order, criminal impersonation, and a warrant for failure to comply. We are still investigating to see if other people were involved in the Cabela’s theft.
