second time this place has been broken into in the last month. Wasn't there something about someone robbing this same place with a knife in March? What is going on. Why won't the police give us some information about how the crime went down?

It's not that the police won't tell, it's that the Frail-Gazelle doesn't/can't/won't do any reporting, and they won't bother to put much up online.

Best to stick to the Estes Park News and the Loveland Reporter Herald for the chance that they may have more current news and updates.

this? I often find it's best to stick to the Inbred Weekly, a journal of West Virginia druids missing a few strands of genetic material. They are behind most crimes in the holler.

Yooo. Halla. Beckley rules, and hides his location

The robbery in march was at the Real West photo store, which is pretty much the same thing as the Memories, but across the street.
The knife robbery was different, the guys face wasn't seen at all.
Memories's robber interacted with the clerk (hi, that's me) and used a gun. Within a week or so of it happening word spread pretty well. I did my part in retelling what happened.

Want a second WOW? The guy who was arrested and besmirched by this arrest has been released, because DNA testing and video evidence has shown he was not the robber/attacker.

And a triple WOW? Neither the T-G nor the Estes Park Happy Place News have bothered to report the dropped charges, or that a violent robber is still on the loose.

Want an even bigger WOW? The editor of the T-G
was sent this link last Thursday (May 10) informing him of the release, but .......where's the news?

I Know the suspect accused in this event, and saw him as recently as 8/29/2012 when he appeared in court in Boulder county on another case. I first met this man via a friend in 2001 and have been exposed, involuntarily, since. When I saw the picture I was shocked and blurted out "hey, that's _________! After years of exposure to the man I met in 2001 I have no doubt the police arrested the right man in Arpil. When I saw him in the Boulder Courthouse yesterday He was wearing sun glasses that look identical to those in the photo. There is little doubt in my mind that the man in the photo is the man I have known since 2001. The police may contact me if they see fit. I suspect any controversial DNA may have been planted intentially, just to throw off wary investigators, because the photo and the history of this suspect correlate in my opinion. Even a former girlfriend after seeing the picture of the suspect arrested in April said, " hey, they finally caught him red handed." So even someone who knew him very personnally identified the suspect as the man she had known. She knew the photo was that of the identified suspect the polece had arrested. We were stupified to hear that he has been released due to DNA.
