Trio nabbed for burglary

Aspen police arrested a husband and wife and another man Sunday morning in connection with the burglary of a Waters Avenue residence that occurred moments earlier, according to authorities.

Nathan Koon, 26, of Loveland, his wife Jamie Koon, 23, and Shawn McDowell, 23, of Townsend, Mont. were all arrested on felony charges of second-degree burglary and theft, according to Officer Richard Pryor of the Aspen Police Department.

“At about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to the residence,” Pryor said. “The person who reported the burglary gave a description of the suspects’ pickup truck and the officers stopped the truck within a block of the residence.”

Stolen property was located in the truck, Pryor said. The three were placed under arrest and taken into custody without incident. Pryor would not specify what the three suspects allegedly stole from the residence.

The individual who reported the crime was in the home at the time of the alleged burglary, Pryor said.

Police don’t believe yesterday’s burglary is related to any other recent crimes in the area, Pryor said.

All three suspects were booked into the Pitkin County Jail on $15,000 bonds early Sunday. By yesterday afternoon, Nathan Koon and McDowell remained in custody, while Jamie Koon had bonded out, according to jail officials.

The three are scheduled to appear in Pitkin County’s 9th Judicial District Court this morning.
