EDWARDS — Two men who allegedly robbed their way up Cottonwood Pass while drunk face 54 charges between them.

Robert Lee Larsen and Tony Kelly, both 33 and both from Glenwood Springs, remain in the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel on $25,000 cash bonds.

Police say they wrecked two vehicles and a motorcycle they allegedly stole, and tried to set one of them on fire. Police said they were drunk at the time of the incident.

Among the charges are aggravated motor vehicle theft, arson, conspiracy and burglary.

At the time of the incident, Kelly was free on bond for a felony in Glenwood Springs and a long list of priors. He was on parole at the time of this incident.

Larsen’s criminal background stretches back to 1999, beginning with drug charges, prosecutors said. Among the highlights are numerous contempt of court and flight charges, dangerous drug charges, a 2006 parole violation, vehicular assault in 2007, habitual traffic offender and reckless endangerment in 2010.

On the afternoon of the incident, Eagle County sheriff’s deputies and the Colorado State Patrol were called to a rollover accident on Cottonwood Pass Road south of Gypsum. The rollover involved two vehicles, a Jeep and an Audi.

Larsen was intoxicated when he wrecked the Jeep, police said. He was ejected from the Jeep and seriously injured. In fact, at his first court appearance he wore a hospital gown over his orange jail clothes.

The wrecked Jeep had been stolen from a residence on Cottonwood Pass road.

Nearby, police found the Audi stashed in tall sagebrush that the two had allegedly tried to set on fire before fleeing the scene. That Audi had been stolen earlier that day in Glenwood Springs, police said.

Police quickly set off to search for Kelly, led by an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office K-9. Kelly was intoxicated when they caught him, police said.

When police searched the Jeep they found several firearms and a small motorcycle that had also been allegedly stolen in the Cottonwood Pass area.

Sheriff’s deputies located the owner of the stolen items who lived in the Cottonwood Pass area. Police say the suspects had burglarized the residence around the time of the Jeep was stolen.

Larsen and Kelly are back in court Aug. 6. The public defender will represent them.
