Two-county crime spree ends with suspect’s capture in Loveland …

LOVELAND, Colo. — Law enforcement captured a suspect in Loveland on Wednesday night after a crime spree that crossed Boulder and Larimer counties.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office received calls about 5:30 p.m. about a man trying to steal cars from the parking lot at Praha Restaurant at 75th Street and Ute Highway.

The sheriff’s office said the suspect had abandoned a car he stole about 3 p.m. near the Owl Canyon area of Larimer County.

“When confronted by staff and vehicle owners, the suspect threatened one employee with a knife. One person on scene used a stun gun on the suspect, who then fled and subsequently stole a vehicle from a nearby house,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

Deputies initiated a pursuit of the suspect but terminated it because of the suspect’s “erratic and dangerous driving.”

The suspect eventually made his way into Larimer County, where law enforcement from additional agencies pursued and

Old Navy arson suspect believed to be responsible for recent crime …

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The man accused of firebombing the Old Navy appeared in federal court Wednesday morning. For the first time he was publicly linked to the string of other fires around the city including The Carlisle building in Nob Hill.

The judge decided David Hickman is a danger to the community and a flight risk so he’ll stay behind bars until his trial.

The state argued he could strike again and that he is a danger to the community and to responding police officers and firefighters. The state also linked Hickman to the $9 million Carlisle fire, the overnight attacks on three Starbucks, a Barnes and Noble and a pro-life ministry all last week.

Police arrested him after he drove away from the Old Navy and say they found guns, ammo, explosive materials and mason jars that our sources tell us were filled with gasoline.

They are waiting

By NECIA P. SEAMONS

Citizen editor

            To combat the recent crime spree in the Preston business district, Preston City Chief Ken Geddes issued a letter through the Greater Preston Business Association to member businesses that outlined tips to help them improve security.

            The letter also noted that the department has increased coverage and employed other measures to resolve the problem.

            “We will focus all our resources to resolve these crimes,” he stated.

A burglar said that drugs had blotted out his memory of a one night crime spree in which he targeted homes and cars including a Porsche.

Lee Hill, 32, from Middlesbrough , appeared over a video link from Holme House Jail in Stockton to admit the blitz on October 20.

Hill’s lawyer told Teesside Crown Court that a victim witnessed his bizarre behaviour as he walked down a street carrying eight coats.

Simon Walker, defending, said that Hill was watched as he tried the doors of parked cars including a Porsche Boxter and a Citroen 1.

Mr Walker told the judge: “Some aspects of this man’s life are distressing.

“He had taken drugs and alcohol and his recollections of events are zero.
