[ARCHIVED] Fugitive Returned To Steamboat Springs To Face Charges

A man wanted by the Steamboat Springs Police on felony charges has been extradited from New Jersey to the Routt County Jail and Detention Center. 

Fugitive task force agents took Steamboat Springs resident, Timothy Lormand, age 39, into custody without incident on December 12, 2017 at a private residence near Newark, New Jersey.  The search for, and apprehension of Lormand, follows an investigation into offenses that occurred over an eleven day period of July 2017 in the City of Steamboat Springs. 

An arrest warrant for Lormand indicates probable cause for the offenses of: Sexual Assault on a Child, a violation of C.R.S. 18-3-405(1)(a) a class 3 Felony, Aggravated Incest, a violation of C.R.S. 18-6-302(1)(a) a class 3 Felony, Child Abuse, a violation of C.R.S. 18-6-401(1)(a) a class 1 Misdemeanor. 

The complexity and scope of the investigation deepened when investigators learned Lormand had not only fled to avoid arrest, but was being assisted by his mother, Anna Bronner, age 63, also a Steamboat Springs resident. Bronner was arrested December 7, 2017 based on an arrest warrant that indicates probable cause for Accessory to Crime C.R.S. 18-8-105(1), a class 5 Felony. 

“The collaboration with other agencies has been invaluable,” said Detective Sam Silva. Steamboat Springs Police detectives worked with multiple law enforcement agencies in Colorado, Missouri, as well as the United States Secret Service, Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the United States Marshals Office. 

“Now that Mr. Lormand has been located and returned, he will be afforded due process,” said Commander Annette Dopplick. “The victim is receiving supportive services and is ready to move forward with a sense of safety.”

All charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
