Aspen, Colo. (AP) - A Grand Junction man has been charged with multiple felonies after allegedly stealing firearms from a Pitkin County home.
Forty-four-year-old Matthew Barry Hildebrandt faces charges of identity theft, second-degree burglary, theft and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
Hildebrandt is accused of breaking into a home near Aspen Mountain in November 2008 and stealing several items valued between $1,000 and $20,000.
He was arrested in Grand Junction in November on a Pitkin County warrant, and is being held in the Mesa County jail on $96,500 bond.
Hildebrandt is due in court Monday for an advisement hearing.
He faces up to 48 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
