NEW CASTLE, Colorado ” Thieves have been targeting homes in the Castle Valley Ranch area since October, the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

The Sheriff’s Office said in a news release the area has had “several” burglaries, and one of the main targets has been newly constructed homes. Items stolen include appliances, exterior lighting, jewelry, passports, IDs and credit cards. “Several” Realtor locks were also tampered with, the Sheriff’s Office said.
