Contact Information

On March 4, 2021 at approximately 12:42 p.m., Fort Collins Criminal Impact Unit detectives contacted Daniel Warro, 39, of Fort Collins to serve an arrest warrant for violating a protection order and violating bail bond conditions. Warro was initially compliant, but during the interaction, he became uncooperative and reached for what appeared to be a weapon. After a brief struggle, police were able to safely take him into custody. A handgun was recovered from the suspect’s waistband.

Warro sustained minor injuries during the incident and was transported to an area hospital for evaluation. He was booked into the Larimer County Jail and faces the following charges:

Felony Menacing – 5 counts (class 5 felony)

Resisting Arrest (class 2 misdemeanor)

Violation of Bail Bond Conditions – 2 counts (class 6 felony)

Violation of a Protection Order (class 2 misdemeanor)

“This was an extremely difficult situation involving a deadly weapon,” said Criminal Investigations Assistant Chief Tim Doran. “Despite the great personal risk, our detectives relied on the resources they had available and safely took this suspect into custody. I’m proud of their work and beyond grateful that they get to go home to their families tonight.”

All charges are simply an accusation by law enforcement officers, and any arrested party must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
