“Local law enforcement wants to assure our community that it was a Co2 BB gun that was used in this crime spree,” Mosher said.

Investigation Ongoing

The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Eagle Police Department and Avon Police Department are asking anyone with information regarding the incidents, or who may be a victim to contact local law enforcement.

The case remains under investigation, so the suspects’ identity and the charges they face are not yet being released.
