[ARCHIVED] Two Individuals Arrested for Series of Related Crimes

SSPD Incident 10.27.22 NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-October 27, 2022-The Steamboat Springs Police Department (SSPD) investigated a series of related crimes that lead to the arrest of two individuals on multiple charges today, Thursday, October 27, 2022. 

This morning, SSPD officers responded to a theft from a vehicle where hunting gear and a firearm were stolen. Later that morning, SSPD received a call about a stolen truck, a Toyota Tacoma, which was reported to be idling unoccupied at the Kum & Go on the west side of town. 

The reporting party followed the vehicle until the driver evaded them by turning into a ranch off County Road 33. The suspect drove across several fields. SSPD found the truck unoccupied and disabled in a ditch several miles away. Officers searched the area and arrested the driver approximately a mile from where the vehicle crashed. 

Several hours after the apprehension of the first suspect, officers located a Chevrolet pickup truck the suspect was in prior to stealing the Toyota Tacoma.  Officers contacted a female in that vehicle, which was also reported stolen out of Westminster, CO. During the stop, items were found which were stolen from the vehicle theft reported earlier in the morning. The female suspect was taken into custody. 

During that contact, officers noticed a nearby RV with an open door which the female suspect admitted entering. Not knowing if anyone else was inside the RV, officers made announcements with no response. Ultimately, the Combined Emergency Response Team (CERT) responded to the scene and less lethal means (tear gas) were deployed to contact a possible suspect. When officers made entry, no one was found.

Both suspects were booked into jail on multiple charges. The suspect who stole the Toyota Tacoma was identified as 25-year-old Taylor White and the female suspect was identified as 36-year-old Dory Myler.
