Police seek suspects in burglaries, theft


Staff Writer

The Pagosa Springs Police Department is seeking information about two burglaries that occurred earlier this week.

The burglaries took place either Monday evening or Tuesday morning, said Det. Scott Maxwell.

One burglary occurred at Coates Collision Center on Majestic Drive, with a laptop computer and digital camera reported missing, Maxwell said.

Maxwell said the second burglary occurred at Toner Mountain Copiers on Eagle Drive, with cash, a Mac laptop and a Mac Mini computer reported missing.

The PSPD is also seeking help to identify a woman who used a stolen credit card to purchase orange juice at a local liquor store, as well as who may have stolen the wallet the credit card was in.

On Oct. 28, PSPD Officer Brooks Brown was contacted by a man at about 6:30 p.m., with the man reporting that his wallet was stolen earlier in the day, Maxwell said.

The victim said he was at The Springs Resort about 4:30 p.m. and forgot his wallet, which he left on top of a locker. When he returned, the wallet was gone.

The man’s credit card was later used at Plaza Liquors by a woman Maxwell described as heavy set and Hispanic.

Maxwell said the woman attempted to use the credit card and a fake ID to purchase alcohol, but the clerk denied the sale. The suspect ended up purchasing orange juice with the credit card before leaving.
