On May 14, 2015, within a 2-3 minute span at about 5:40 AM, a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt was stolen from a parking lot in the 5600 block of 26th Avenue when the owner left it running when she went back inside her apartment to look for an item that she forgot.
On May 15, 2015, at about 11:30 PM, officers responded to the Green Solution marijuana dispensary in the 6000 block of W. 20th Avenue regarding a robbery with a handgun that had just occurred. The officers’ preliminary investigation revealed that two males traveling to Las Vegas from Wisconsin had purchased 14 grams of marijuana and placed their bags of marijuana in the trunk of their vehicle. The victims were seated in their vehicle preparing to leave the location when a male suspect armed with a handgun wearing a bandana covering the lower portion of his face approached them and demanded that they open the vehicle trunk. The male suspect stole the two bags of marijuana and money from both victims. The suspect fled on foot southbound on Harlan Street. The suspect remains outstanding and the case is under investigation.
On May 16, 2015, at about 12:30 PM, officers responded to the Target store at 1985 Sheridan Boulevard regarding a shoplift in progress involving a male and female suspect. During the officers’ investigation, they determined that the suspects were associated with a 2003 Ford Explorer in the parking lot that had been reported stolen in Thornton on May 10, 2015. The officers contacted the female suspect who immediately became verbally aggressive and tried to resist arrest, challenging the officers to fight and kicking one of the officers in the lower leg. The female suspect attempted to kick out the windows of a patrol vehicle after she was handcuffed. The male suspect offered no resistance and was compliant with the officers’ commands. The male suspect was arrested and booked into the Jefferson County Jail for aggravated motor vehicle theft and theft while the female suspect was arrested and booked into the Jefferson County Jail for 2nd degree assault and resisting arrest. The female suspect has ties to a violent north Denver street gang.

The suspect was booked into the Jefferson County Jail.
On May 17, 2015, at about 2:00 PM, an officer responded to the vacant building once occupied by the King Soopers in the 5500 block of W. 20th Avenue regarding a burglary.
