A suspect has been arrested and faces serious charges after police say he held up a Grand Junction couple at gunpoint and robbed their home. Grand Junction police arrested Gary Thomas Clow, 35, in connection with the home invasion on January 3rd in northeast Grand Junction.
Police believe Clow broke into the home of a couple in their 60's, tied them up, ransanked the house, and threatened to kill them. Police say Clow referenced a sexual assault threat to the 62-year-old female victim and touched her inappropriately.
Police caught Clow as a result of a 3 month investigation that spanned across other agencies. The final link came on March 22nd after Clow reportedly pawned a stolen Rolex watch at a shop in Glendale.
Grand Junction detectives were tracking Clow's movement throughout the week. Wednesday at 2:30 A.M., police stopped the suspect in a car around 7th Street and Ute Avenue. Clow tried to escape, but after a foot chase he was captured and taken into custody.
The driver of the car, Lynn Ray Daniels, 43, was also arrested for driving violations. Clow is currently at the Mesa County Jail. His bond is set at more than $400,000. He faces numerous charges, including 1st degree burglary, aggravated robbery, and felony menacing.
