Police Draw Colorado Springs Man Out of Apartment By Unplugging Illegal Utilities Connection

A Colorado Springs man was arrested Tuesday on a felony warrant after police drew him out of his apartment southeast of Airport Road and South Academy Boulevard.

Nicholas Rogers, 34, was wanted on a felony menacing warrant. Police looked for him at his apartment in a complex in the 700 block of Chapman Drive. No one answered the apartment door, but police found an extension cord running from his residence to an outlet in the laundry room, an illegal utilities connection. Police disconnected the cord and hid in the laundry room to wait.

After about half an hour, Rogers left his apartment and went to the laundry room. He was arrested on the felony warrant and also charged with tampering with a utilities meter.

I’ll bet they could not believe how easy that was. Maybe the criminals’ facebooking hobby was interrupted when all the lights went out.

Really? Plugging into another outlet is tampering with utilities meter? Some creative charging there...

Yes, it’s a valid charge. Although it really should be called “Utility Services Tampering” in Colorado. But I wouldn’t expect the moonbat liberals in Denver to know pass any law with the correct verbiage.

Maybe he is from Detroit, and he thought electricity should be free like people in Detroit believe water should be free.

Sounds dangerous, wonder why they didn’t just set the place on fire, and shoot as he ran out?

They got him out without flash-bang grenades, armored vehicles, dead suspects, or shooting dogs - credit where credit's due.

I’ll file this under ‘police being clever and patient instead of brutal and thuggish.’

As a person critical of police wrongdoing, I agree. Colorado Springs police are above average in professionalism for the most part. Especially compared to Denver PD or Adams County SD.

Where’s Mark Ruffalo when you need him? If he had been campaigning in Colorado Springs for free electricity instead of in Detroit campaigning for free municipal water, this fool thug would have been safe from this unwarranted harassment.

Apparently no broken down doors, “flash-banged” children, nor dead dogs.
