July 17, 2009
EAGLE COUNTY – The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy caught a burglar red-handed at the Napa Auto Parts store in El Jebel on Saturday.
Daniel Grine, 23, of Woody Creek, was arrested for second-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass, criminal mischief and theft, according to the sheriff’s office. He is being held in the Eagle County jail on $150,000 bond.
A person in the neighborhood called authorities at 11:43 p.m. after hearing glass breaking and seeing someone climb into the window of Napa, according to the police report. Deputy Rob Burner responded to the scene and arrested Grine without incident. The man claimed he was with “four or five friends,” but neither Burner nor Basalt police who responded as back-up found any accomplices, according to Shannon Cordingly, public information officer for the sheriff’s office. A video surveillance system at the Napa store confirmed that Grine acted alone.
