On Thursday night, the University of Colorado Boulder sent an alert to the campus community about a report of a fondling and trespassing case that occurred inside a NightRide vehicle. Late Friday morning, the suspect in that case turned himself in. CU Police then arrested Ashten Johnson Talley, a 29-year-old man from Vail, Colorado, on felony first-degree criminal trespass and other charges. Further investigation determined that Talley touched the victim. But, at this time, there is no evidence that the actions were sexual in nature and or met the legal definition of a sex crime.

We have taken several reports about different internet scams that people are falling victim to. In many of the scams, the person sends you a check that is more than they told you they would. Then, they tell you deposit the check and send them the balance in gift cards or a check. By the time their check is returned to your bank, they have cashed your check or taken off with the gift cards. Here are a few tips to help you from becoming a victim of these scams.

Earlier this week, we made two different arrests in bike theft cases. For the first arrest, Terran George Griffith (DOB 6/16/88) was sitting in the Boulder County Jail on an unrelated charge. Officers went to the jail, arrested him, and issued him an exclusion from campus. In the second case, we received a call from a resident at the Newton Court Apartments reporting a person who was in the bike racks attempting to steal a bike. When officers arrived, they found a man matching the description of the suspect. Dylan Richard Klingele (DOB 6/2/1999) was arrested for theft, possession of burglary tools, and possession of a controlled substance.

On Sept. 22, we received a call from our lobby from someone who was scared and lost. The man had recently arrived in town and had lost all of his property, including his shoes. His bare feet were dirty and cold. One officer left the lobby and returned with a pair of shoes, socks, a long-sleeved t-shirt, and a bottle of water. The man was taken outside so that he could wash his feet before putting on his new shoes. Another officer contacted a local shelter and secured a bed for the man. He turned down a ride to the shelter, but he was given a map and directions. We are proud of the selfless actions of these officers and hope these shoes will help this man find success.

Beginning, Monday, Oct. 1, we will no longer be able to provide fingerprinting services to our community. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has selected two private companies to handle the intake of fingerprints. For more information, go to the CBI website.
