Joshua Milligan mug shot

A Hayden man is in the Routt County Jail for nine charges, including 2nd degree burglary, larceny, and theft. 31-year-old Joshua Milligan was already serving a sentence on other charges. Hayden Police Chief Greg Tuliszewski said burglaries had been happening in storage units. They had probable cause to get a search warrant on Milligan’s residence in Hayden.

Chief Tuliszewski says the investigation happened because of interagency cooperation with the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office. Milligan has a court date today, more court dates scheduled for next month, and a jury trial on four other charges of second degree assault, reckless endangerment, false imprisonment, and obstruction of a telephone in December.

A fifth marijuana retail dispensary has been approved for Craig. City Council originally denied approval because some neighbors objected to High Ways LLC going in on West Victory Way.
