Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) A woman considered a “person of interest” in the investigation into a polygamist ranch in Texas is due in court Friday in Colorado Springs.
Rozita Swinton has been charged with a misdemeanor for making false reports to police in Colorado Springs, a charge unrelated to the Texas raid.
But the 33-year-old also caught the attention of Texas authorities because she was linked to a telephone number possibly related to reports of alleged abuse at the yearning for Zion ranch.
Colorado Springs police arrested Swinton on the false reporting charge in mid-April, three days after being contacted by Texas authorities.
They say a search of her home turned up several items suggesting a connection between Swinton and calls regarding the YFZ ranch and other polygamist compounds in Texas and Arizona.
