KRAI News for Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019

A man from Clifton has been arrested after a burglary at Mathers Bar, at 420 Yampa Ave. An affidavit says 22-year-old Brandon Tucker Deshazer and an accomplice stole a five-gallon bucket full of loose quarters, worth about $800. And they skipped out on their bar tab which was about $200. The bartender saw the men dropped quarters as they walked out and trying to pull his pants up because the quarters were so heavy. Police arrested Deshazer at a traffic stop, and he was booked into the Moffat County Jail where he was released on bond. He’s back in court on Sept. 24.

A Steamboat Springs man was arrested after he forced an employee of Walmart, to accompany him throughout the store, against their will. 60-year-old David Brown made the employee go through the store with him, after he told her to “let him take what he needed” and “be quiet about it.” The Steamboat Pilot reports she managed to get another employee to walk with Brown, while she was able to call 911. Steamboat Police were there within one minute to arrest him.
