2 suspects smash living room window, threaten residents with hunting knife and steal truck, Adams County deputies say – The Denver Post

Intruders broke into an Adams County home early Saturday, throwing a large rock through the living window, threatening the residents and stealing a pickup truck.

The frightening incident happened at about 1 a.m. in the 8700 block of Franklin Street, according to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.

The residents were asleep when awakened by someone trying to steal their Ford Ranger, a news release said. A resident went outside and confronted the suspects, who threatened him and demanded the truck keys. The victim went back inside and a large rock was thrown through the living room window.

The perpetrators forcibly entered the home, through the broken window, and threatened the victim with a hunting knife and claimed to have gun, the release said. After a struggle, the intruders got the keys to the truck and stole it, leaving behind a Subaru, which had also been stolen. None of the victims were injured.

Deputies spotted the stolen Ford on Washington Street near East 76th Avenue and pursued it. In the 4900 block of Washington Street, a pursuing deputy bumped the truck in an attempt to stop it. The driver of the stolen truck lost control and hit a utility pole.

The two suspects fought deputies but were subdued and arrested. Both suspects were in possession of methamphetamine when taken into custody, the sheriff’s office said.

The suspects are identified as Alix Jo-Ray Montoya, 29, of Englewood and Brandie Price, 37, of Coos Bay, Ore., according to the release.

Both suspects were held for investigation of first-degree burglary, aggravated robbery, first-degree criminal trespass, aggravated motor vehicle theft and eluding police among other possible charges.
