Armed Deputies Surround Mobile Home Park Looking For Suspects

With guns drawn, deputies with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office surrounded a mobile home park Saturday morning looking for suspects who may have siphoned gas from a local business.

Deputies were called out to Desert Wind Mechanical in the 2800 Block of I–70B at about 11 a.m. The wife of the owner of the business says she and her husband arrived at the business to grab some paper work when they saw two men in a fenced in area siphoning gas.

The men fled on foot. The woman says she noticed one of the suspects was carrying a knife. She called 911 and her husband chased the suspects into a mobile home park where he lost them.

Deputies surrounded the area and searched yards, empty trailers and crawl spaces. They couldn't find the suspects.

Officials say the incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 241-STOP.
