Burglary spree hits subdivision

REDSTONE At least seven homes were broken into over the weekend in the Swiss Village subdivision near Redstone on Highway 133.The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the burglaries and would not release the value of items taken or what current leads are being pursued. “This is alarming to us because it was done in the afternoon on Saturday, which creates a high probability of a confrontation with a homeowner,” said lead investigator Ron Ryan. “We want to avoid that confrontation in someone’s home.”Ryan said that it was likely all the break-ins occurred Saturday; however, some were discovered Sunday, so they may have happened that day as well. “There are some witnesses, details of which we are not releasing,” Ryan said Sunday. “We have no reason to believe this person wants contact with people or will commit a crime of violence.”Six of the burglaries happened in the Swiss Village subdivision, south of Carbondale and north of Redstone, and at least one happened outside of the subdivision, nearby. Ryan asked that people in the area know that the burglaries have been happening so people can take basic safety precautions such as locking doors and keeping an eye out for odd happenings. Though Ryan said the sheriff’s office is working on several leads, details cannot be released now. He said further information will be released as soon as possible.Joel Stonington’s e-mail address is jstonington@aspentimes.com
