A man has been arrested after using a stolen vehicle to break into several businesses during the early morning hours.
At approximately 2:07 a.m. on November 1, 2017, Fort Collins Police received a report that a man drove a truck into Mulberry Max Liquor (460 S. College Ave) and stole money from inside. The suspect used the same method to burglarize Thirsty’s Liquor (1001 S. Lemay Ave), Lemay Liquor (737 S. Lemay Ave), and Relay Mail (737 S. Lemay Ave). Officers located the vehicle, at which time the suspect parked and fled on foot. He was apprehended and taken into custody. Detectives believe that the same suspect is also responsible for a burglary at Sushi Jeju (238 S. College Ave) that occurred overnight. The impacted businesses were closed during the incident, and no employees or bystanders were injured. The combined cost of damage is expected to exceed $250,000.
The suspect was arrested on four counts of Burglary and Criminal Mischief and booked into the Larimer County Jail. Officers are still working to confirm the man’s identity, and additional charges are pending. A booking photo is not available for release at this time. Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call Detective Chris Wagner at (970) 416-2751 or Larimer County Crime Stoppers at (970) 221-6868.
All charges are simply an accusation by law enforcement officers, and all arrested parties must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
