[ARCHIVED] Early Morning Steamboat Springs Burglary

Police Generic

Two suspects from an early morning burglary are facing numerous charges for their involvement in a burglary, motor vehicle theft, and eluding law enforcement.

At about 6:45 this morning, Steamboat Springs Police Officers responded to a report of a burglary at Alpine Lumber at 1090 Pine Grove Rd. While commuting to work, an employee became suspicious upon noticing a company truck departing the area. The employee soon arrived at the store and discovered the burglary and alerted police. Responding officers promptly shared the description of the stolen truck with regional law enforcement.

“Interagency collaboration is critical to our mission,” observed Steamboat Springs Police Detective Sergeant Jeff Wilson. “When criminal activity crosses jurisdictional boundaries, our efforts to have close working relationships with neighboring agencies allows us to respond more quickly and work together as we’ve seen in this case.”

Detective Sergeant Wilson also praised the employee, “This person’s ability to share specific and useful information quickly enhanced our response and contributed to the apprehension of the suspects. Great work on her part!”

While the effort to capture the culprits is complete, the work by Steamboat Springs Police detectives is just beginning.  Evidence will be gathered from several different crime scenes that span different jurisdictions and are separated by nearly a hundred miles. Hundreds of items, including high-end tools and equipment, are being processed and the investigation by detectives continues. 

The suspects, Kyle Hallaran, age 29 from Johnstown, CO, and Justin James Davis, age 28 from Loveland, CO, will be advised of charges in Routt County tomorrow, Friday, November 30, 2019.

Anyone with additional information regarding this case or any other crime is encouraged to contact the Steamboat Springs Police at 970.879.1144.

All charges are merely accusations. Persons arrested or charged with a crime are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
