Two suspects in custody for break in
Monument Police arrested two suspects for breaking into the Cold Stone Creamery, early Tuesday morning.
On November 19, 2013, approximately 12:40 am, an Officer with the Monument Police Department was patrolling the shopping center in the 16,000 block of Jackson Creek Parkway. While doing so he observed a vehicle driving through the parking lot with its headlights off and then stop at a closed bank. Before contacting the vehicle it drove away and the Officer lost sight of it for a short period. The Officer found the vehicle parked in front of the Cold Stone Creamery, 15932 Jackson Creek Parkway. He could see that the vehicle was running, it was occupied by one person, the glass to the front door of the business was broken, and there was a suspect in the store breaking into the cash register. As the Officer approached, the suspect in the store exited. At this point the Officer could see that both suspects were wearing gas masks. Both suspects were taken into custody without incident.
Both suspects were booked into the Criminal Justice Center on charges related to CRS 18-4-203 2nd Degree Burglary (class 4 felony), CRS 18-4-501 Criminal Mischief (class 1 misdemeanor), and CRS 18-4-401 Theft (class 3 misdemeanor).
The two male suspects (Colorado Springs area residents) are: Kyle Edward Cole, 23, and Jeffrey Connelly, 19, according to a release issued by Lieutenant Stephen Burk of Monument Police Department.
