ASPEN ” Glenwood Springs man faces multiple felonies in connection with an alleged burglary and assault at an Aspen condominium that resulted in a resident suffering a laceration to the head.

Eric Christopher Eanes, 22, is accused of second-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and four related misdemeanors that stem from the 1:38 a.m. May 1 incident at a Cooper Avenue condo.

He was arrested about a half-hour after the incident in Garfield County, according to a court filing.

A second suspect, Craig Daniel Moore, was arrested three days later on May 4. Moore is accused of second-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and three misdemeanors.

The second-degree burglary count is the most serious felony offense and carries a penalty of as many as 12 years in prison, based on state sentencing guidelines.

Both men are to appear at 10:30 a.m. May 18 in Pitkin County District Court. Eanes is free on $26,500 bond. Moore is being held on $14,500 bond at Pitkin County Jail.

The victims, a man and a woman, reported the alleged burglary and assault. They told Aspen police that Eanes and Moore, 26, broke into the condo.

Once inside Eanes and Moore allegedly “pushed” the woman into the bathroom, then beat up the male victim in the kitchen before leaving the condo, according to a police report.

The woman identified the 6-foot, 3-inch Eanes as her former boyfriend. While an officer was interviewing the woman Eanes apparently twice telephoned her.

He is alleged to have left two expletive filled messages that referenced her relationship with the male victim. Both telephone calls were recorded.

At about 2 a.m. one of the Aspen officers notified Garfield County sheriff’s deputies as well as Glenwood Springs police about the situation, including information on a vehicle Eanes was driving.

At about 2:15 a.m. a Garfield County sheriff’s deputy spotted the vehicle and stopped it at “mile marker 4.5 on Highway 117.” Eanes was subsequently arrested.

Moore apparently was not in the vehicle at the time it was stopped.

Report: Estimates of future Upper Colorado River Basin water use confound previous planning

A report released this month by the Center for Colorado River Studies says that in order to sustainably manage the river in the face of climate change, officials need alternative management paradigms and a different way of thinking compared with the status quo. Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
