WP-Cyberspace-620x400

More than $100,000 in high-end jewelry and watches was reported stolen from an apartment building in the 2800 block of Orchard Avenue on Feb. 25, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

The burglar reportedly stole a diamond-encrusted Franck Muller watch, a diamond-encrusted woman’s Rolex watch, several pieces of jewelry, and precious gems including diamonds, topazes and amethysts.

The case is still under investigation, police said.

Suspected forgery ring

Jillian Pearl Morgan, 30, could face felony identity theft charges among several other counts after her Saturday arrest on suspicion of writing a phony check.

Someone arrested April 12 on suspicion of cashing a forged check identified Morgan, who was staying at a motel in the 100 block of North First Street, as the check’s writer, saying she “cooperated in Morgan’s schemes so she could obtain money to purchase narcotics,” according to an arrest warrant.

Grand Junction police officers who arrested Morgan said they found methamphetamine in a loaded syringe, and financial information belonging to several people, according to the affidavit.

Chief Deputy District Attorney David Waite said Monday in county court that law enforcement officers suspect Morgan to be involved with a “fraud ring” and potentially connected to 14 other cases.

Morgan could be charged with felony counts of identity theft, forgery, criminal possession of four or more financial transaction devices and criminal possession of a forged instrument, as well as possession of a schedule II controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. She was issued a $5,000 cash-only bond and is due to return to court April 26.

Baseball bat attack

Lyn Rippy Anderson, 20, could face felony first-degree burglary charges, along with counts of second-degree assault and menacing, after sheriff’s deputies say they believe he forced his way into a woman’s house looking for her son and beat her with a baseball bat.

A 42-year-old woman told Mesa County sheriff’s deputies that a man came to the door of her home in the 200 block of Village Lane April 12 asking for her son, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. She said when she told him her son wasn’t there, the man forced his way in and started hitting her in the chest with a baseball bat and kicking her in the ribs.

Anderson, who appeared Monday in county court, was issued a $5,000 personal-recognizance bond with GPS monitoring.

Snow-filled tree branch falls, kills man

COLORADO SPRINGS — Authorities say a 70-year-old southern Colorado man was killed when a large tree branch weighed down by snow fell on him while he was plowing outside of his home.

KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs reports James Aldridge was plowing with an ATV when he was hit by the branch in Monte Vista on Saturday. Several firefighters who were down the street freeing a firetruck that was stuck in the snow tried to help Aldridge, who was unconscious and not breathing.

The man died at a hospital in Alamosa, and the Rio Grande County coroner’s office has planned an autopsy.
