COLORADO SPRINGS – The man arrested as part of an investigation into a home daycare has pleaded guilty to felony Accessory to Crimes in an El Paso County Courtroom. As part of his plea, Dirk Kilgore will be on probation and community supervision for 2 years.
Kilgore was arrested in August 2018 as Colorado Springs Police were called by a parent upset they could not get a hold of their caregiver watching their 2-year-old at ‘Tiny Toes’ inside a home on Warwick Lane.
It was a long drawn-out scene as officers set up a containment area, called for a negotiator, and worked for several hours to get the child returned safely.
Eventually Kilgore walked out of the home to surrender and turned over the upset child to police. He was originally charged with Attempt to Influence a Public Servant.
The charge of Accessory to Crimes concerns suspects accused of helping a wanted person by rendering assistance, harboring or concealing, or assisting them in avoiding police in general.
The other suspect, Anna Brimm, is still awaiting trial on charges of kidnapping, child abuse, drug charges, weapons possession and criminal possession of a financial device.
It was after Kilgore’s surrender that Brimm walked out of the home on her own to surrender. Officers obtained a search warrant for the property they realized was operating as an illegal daycare under a false name allegedly used by Brimm. Inside the home, officers seized methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and a wide variety of prescription drugs packed to sell, according to Colorado Springs Police.
