Robbery suspect behind bars, hit-and-run driver faces charges, woman crashes into own home

This week in crime and punishment news, the second suspect in last week’s home-invasion robbery is behind bars, the man who hit a bicyclist on Olde Stage Road will face charges, and a driver apparently overcorrects so dramatically that she drove into her own house.

Police apprehend second home-invasion robbery suspect

To follow up on last week’s crime and punishment roundup, the second suspect in the Sunshine Canyon marijuana robbery is finally in Boulder County Jail. On Wednesday, eight days after the robbery and the subsequent death of the first suspect, a Greeley police officer made a traffic stop for speeding and caught the second suspect. The list of charges against the surviving suspect are too long to list; click the linked headline for details.

Charges to come for Olde Stage hit-and-run driver

The 33-year-old man who seriously injured a 54-year-old bicyclist on Oct. 16 will be charged with a litany of offenses, including “aggravated habitual traffic offender.” The man allegedly hit the cyclist, stopped his pickup truck, spoke to a witness, then drove away without reporting the incident. A citizen later called in a tip that helped identify the driver.

Driver backs out of garage, hits van, drives into own house

It’s not clear whether driving your car into your own house is a crime, but it’s certainly its own punishment. On Thursday afternoon, a woman reportedly backed into an Orkin pest control van while exiting her garage. Her response was apparently to throw the car into drive and charge back into the garage at such a speed that most of the car ended up inside what might be the kitchen. Boulder fire crews removed the car and stabilized the house.
