Pawn shop record leads to arrest


— A 24-year-old former Steamboat Springs man faces a felony for allegedly providing false information to a local pawn shop.

Bryan C. Sullins has been charged with providing false information on a pawn shop slip for compact discs he allegedly pawned at Mr. Money Pawn Shop in March.

He also faces a misdemeanor charge of theft.

Sullins was arrested Tuesday evening by the Steamboat Springs Police Department. He posted a $2,000 bond Wednesday.

Sullins allegedly pawned a black case containing 15 CDs at the pawn shop March 6. According to a court file, Sullins filled out a receipt slip claiming he is the rightful owner of the case and the music discs, which are collectively worth an estimated $150.

According to a court file, the case was allegedly stolen from a residence in the 1300 block of Indian Trails between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. March 6.

The residence was entered through an unlocked door and the case along with about $3,000 worth of cash and jewelry were stolen.

At the time of the burglary, Sullins lived next to the residence. He has since moved to Divide, Colo., court records show.

An arrest warrant was issued after police discovered Sullins pawned the case. Police reviewed records at the business March 28.

Sullins' next court appearance in Routt County Court is 1:30 p.m. Aug. 8.
