Woman arrested for burglarizing Aspen shop

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

A former employee of the Little Bird consignment store was arrested Tuesday on allegations that she stole cash from the shop’s register.

Luna Nova Andrews, 25, allegedly burglarized the East Cooper Avenue store shortly before midnight on March 19, authorities said. Andrews, who is in Pitkin County Jail on $5,250 bond, faces a class-four felony charge of second-degree burglary and a misdemeanor theft count.

She’s accused of entering Little Bird by using the store’s security password to disable the alarm system, and using a key to get inside. Once inside the store, she took two one-hundred dollar bills and one fifty-dollar bill from the cash register, according to a written statement by Aspen Police Officer Rick Magnuson.

Magnuson obtained the information after interviewing the store’s owner, who told the officer she witnessed the episode on the store’s surveillance video. The owner told Magnuson that Andrews had been fired from the store in December after being “written up three times for being late, being hung over, and lying.”

Andrews likely made a copy of the key because she was asked to turn it over when she was terminated, the manager said.
