Chase ends in stranger’s Gypsum home

GYPSUM, Colorado ” A quiet day at home for a Gypsum, Colorado family took a sudden turn on March 1 when a man ran into their home yelling for help and deputies surrounded the house.

The deputies had chased the 24-year-old from his ex-girlfriend’s apartment. She had called 911 because she suspected he was snooping around her place and she was scared of him.

Even though he hopped the six-foot fence and avoided the sheriff’s K-9, the homeowners refused to let him stay inside the house. He walked out of the house in defeat and turned himself in for the charges of first-degree criminal trespass and resisting arrest. He also had two active warrants against him, the sheriff’s report said.
