Vail Valley armed standoff suspect’s bond set at $100,000
EAGLE — The man who holed up in a house trailer in Dotsero during a seven-hour standoff with a SWAT team will stay in the Eagle County jail until he can raise $100,000 bond.
Santos Crespin, 37, made his first court appearance Wednesday morning, after he surrendered to the SWAT team that surrounded the trailer Tuesday afternoon. Crespin was not armed when he emerged with his hands up.
After his arrest Tuesday evening, Crespin appeared before Eagle County Judge Katharine Sullivan, who set his bond.
Crespin has an extensive criminal record, although before Tuesday, he had not been contacted by law enforcement authorities for the past two years, police records show.
Deputies recovered a revolver from inside the residence after the incident.
Crespin was booked into the Eagle County jail on charges of felony menacing, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and domestic violence, all of which violate his parole.
Ten Eagle County emergency services and law enforcement agencies responded to the Dotsero mobile home park when the call went out.
