Denver homeless man had trove of dresses, stolen goods
A 33-year-old homeless sex offender in Denver had a trove of dresses, undergarments, computers and cell phones as well as the IDs of a dozen women when he was arrested last month, according to an affidavit first by obtained by KMGH-Channel 7.
Angel Lee Rayas was arrested on Feb. 9 after a woman said he followed her in LoDo “threatening to rip her skirt off,” according to arrest documents.
After agreeing to talk to investigators, Rayas, a resident of the Denver Rescue Mission reportedly told the officers he had a “storage locker.”
Using a search warrant, officers discovered women’s items suspected to have been taken in numerous burglaries and car break-ins since last May, according to the arrest documents.
“During the interview, Rayas stated he had broken into so many cars in the area he could not remember all the details,” according to the investigator’s report.
Rayas had the picture of a North High School cheerleader, which was taken with other items in home burglary last year.
Of a dress that was taken from a car in a parking garage on Market Street in LoDo, Rayas reportedly told the officer he “tried the dress on then left it in his locker,” according to the report.
