Teen linked to Take 2 burglary

A teen-ager who has been peripherally linked to the suspects in a number of robberies, burglaries and car thefts in the Aspen area recently confessed to taking part in a burglary at the Take 2 video store.

The teenager’s name is not being released by police, because at 17 years of age, he is considered a minor, according to police.

And, unlike several 17-year-olds who have been directly linked to armed robberies at Clark’s Market and the Aspen Alps in Aspen, and the Village Market in Snowmass Village, as well as a burglary at a Twining Flats home, this teenager is not being charged as an adult, police said.

According to investigators, the teenager who confessed did not set foot in the video store while the burglary took place.

The video store was burglarized twice last summer, and police believe they have gathered enough evidence to seek charges in both crimes.

The youth is being charged with being involved in the crime, but sources predicted he would likely be offered a plea bargain by the district attorney’s office.
