Carbondale man vandalizes RFTA stops

Glenwood Springs police arrested a 29-year-old Carbondale man Thursday morning after he reportedly smashed the glass panels of two Roaring Fork Transportation Authority stops.

Officers were called to RFTA’s Bus Rapid Transit station in south Glenwood at about 7:45 a.m. on a report that a man was throwing rocks through the glass at the station. Glenwood Lieutenant Bill Kimminau said that pretty much all the glass at the station had been busted out. Police later discovered the same had been done to the RFTA stop at the Thunder River Market on Colorado 82 between Glenwood and Carbondale.

The 29-year-old, Jose Dejesus Hernandez Mora, was arrested on felony criminal mischief and possession of drug paraphernalia. Kimminau said the man was found with a methamphetamine pipe, though not with any drugs.

RFTA estimated the damage at the BRT station alone would cost more than $30,000.
