Rizzuto in jail

Aspen Times Staff Report

Another suspect allegedly linked to the Sept. 20 burglary of a Twining Flats Road residence surrendered himself to authorities Sunday afternoon, according to jail officials.

Anthony Rizzuto, 19, of Aspen, turned himself in to authorities at 1:13 p.m. Sunday at the Pitkin County Jail, according to Sheriff’s Deputy Tom Benton.

Shortly afterward, at about 2 p.m., authorities had Rizzuto transferred to the Garfield County Jail in Glenwood Springs, Benton said.

“[Rizzuto] has some interviews to do and his attorney wasn’t available to do it [Sunday], so they thought it would be better to take him down there until tomorrow,” Benton said. “We’ve got some of the other suspects in here, and we don’t want to mix them up until they all have been interviewed.”

It is expected that authorities will question Rizzuto today in the presence of his attorney and then he will be returned to the Pitkin County Jail, Benton said.

Rizzuto, who is being held on a $25,000 bond, was arrested on a warrant alleging four felonies: burglary, theft and two counts of motor vehicle theft.
