With the community’s help, Fort Collins detectives have identified and arrested three suspects from the 2019 theft spree at the Fort Collins Senior Center and Edora Pool Ice Center (EPIC).

John Clark Harden (DOB 06/13/82) was arrested on charges of 3rd Degree Burglary (class 5 felony), Identity Theft (class 4 felony), and Theft (class 5 felony).

Jessica Gochis (DOB 10/25/81) was arrested on charges of Identity Theft (class 4 felony) and Theft (class 2 misdemeanor).

Jessica Lynn Olson (DOB 04/23/86) was arrested on charges of Identity Theft (class 4 felony) and Theft (class 2 misdemeanor).

From October to November 2019, Fort Collins Police Services received multiple reports of thefts from City of Fort Collins fitness centers, including the Fort Collins Senior Center (1200 Raintree Drive) and Edora Pool Ice Center/EPIC (1801 Riverside Drive). In each of the cases, an unknown male suspect entered the locker room and stole personal property. Stolen credit cards were used at local retailers immediately following the thefts.

“We received quite a few tips from the public that helped detectives identify and arrest these suspects,” said Assistant Chief Kevin Cronin, who leads the FCPS Criminal Investigations Division. “We’re grateful to everyone who spread the word or sent us leads. Your efforts truly made a difference in these cases.”
