PUEBLO WEST - Deputies with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office and Troopers with the Colorado State Patrol quickly arrested three people suspected of breaking into and stealing video games from Lock and Load Publishing at 1021 N. Market Plaza in Pueblo West Sunday night.
The business owner was actually in the building at around 9:30 p.m. when the break-in occurred. He locked himself in a room and called 911 after hearing a loud bang and voices coming from the back of the store.
Brandon Bell, 27, Briana Thomason, 20, and Jon Jaquez, 24, were all captured within an hour of the break in. The three are suspected of stealing over $1,000 worth of video games and other retail items. They are accused of damaging a door and a computer valued together at over $4,000.
Sheriff Kirk Taylor praised the cooperation between the deputies and troopers in locating the suspects.
"If one agency has an opportunity to help the other, especially when it comes to the protection of our citizen's and their property, we know we can count on one another," said in a news release.
Bell, Thomason and Jaquez are all being held at the Pueblo County jail on charges of theft, burglary, trespassing and criminal mischief.
