ACET makes arrests in connection to burglaries

— The All Crimes Enforcement Team concluded an investigation Thursday into a “series of burglaries” that allegedly occurred in Moffat and Routt counties, Garrett Wiggins, ACET task force commander, reported in a news release.

Three Craig residents were arrested and are charged in Moffat County in connection.

Shane Meimerstorf, 35, is charged with theft by receiving, possession of a schedule 2 controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tony Swanson, 40, and Sandra Swanson, 43, are charged with possession of a schedule 2 controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and child abuse.

Meimerstorf was arrested Tuesday at a residence in the 600 block of Russell Street; the Swansons were arrested there Thursday, Wiggins reported.

“These arrests came after the execution of an ACET search warrant at the address,” Wiggins said in the news release.

“The search warrant revealed stolen merchandise that is directly related to several burglaries throughout the cities of Steamboat Springs and Craig. Additional merchandise was seized during the completion of this search warrant that is suspected of being stolen property, as well.”

The task force is attempting to learn whether property seized is associated with other burglaries or thefts by notifying the National Crime Information Center, the Colorado Crime Information Center and other law enforcement agencies, Wiggins said.

“Anyone who is or has been the victim of a crime is encouraged to report detailed information to the appropriate authorities as soon as practical,” the task force commander said. “If you or anyone you know has been the victim of a crime of burglary or theft and has failed to report the crime, please call your local law enforcement agency and give a detailed report of the items stolen or missing.”

The three suspects are in custody at the Moffat County Jail and additional charges could be filed, Wiggins said.
