Assistance Requested in Identifying Burglary Suspects

Sheriff's investigators are requesting the public's assistance in trying to identify four burglary suspects observed trying to enter a home in Superior.

Superior, Colo. - Sheriff's investigators are seeking the public's assistance in identifying four suspects who attempted to burglarize a home in Superior on Tuesday, April 26th. Two witnesses observed four men in a gold-colored Toyota Camry stop in front of a residence in the 2000 block of Keota Lane between 4:30 - 4:45 p.m.. Three of the men got out of the vehicle and went to the front door of a residence, where they appeared to knock and/or ring the doorbell.

After no one answered the front door the three males went into the backyard of the residence where they entered an unlocked shed. After entering the shed the three men removed a safety grate that covered a basement window well in an apparent attempt to gain access to the inside of the residence. As the men were removing the grate they noticed they were being watched and subsequently abandoned their attempt, returning to their awaiting vehicle where the fourth man (driver) was also. Two of the witnesses were able to obtain photographs with their cell phones, which are attached below.

The witnesses described the men as being in their late teens or early twenties. Of the three men who exited the vehicle two were described as being of a Caucasian decent, and one was described as being of African-American decent. The driver's ethnicity is unknown. The vehicle was described as a late 1990s or early 2000s 4-door Toyota Camry with very distinguishing mismatched bumpers on the front and back of the vehicle. The license plate number was not obtained.

Anyone who recognizes the vehicle or any of the men depicted in the photographs is asked to contact Detective Chris Fiegel at (303) 441-4763. If anyone has information but would like to remain anonymous, please contact Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit their website at Those who provide information leading to the identification of a suspect could be eligible to receive a reward of up to $1,000.
