Thief takes safe from Iron Mountain Hot Springs

Authorities are looking for help identifying the person who broke into Iron Mountain Hot Springs early on Monday and got away with a small safe.

Glenwood Springs Police Chief Terry Wilson described the crime as a “smash and grab” and said that the department was following up on several leads.

Although the burglar appeared to have arrived and left the scene on foot, Wilson noted that a stolen vehicle was later recovered nearby, and a similar theft was reported at Catherine Store.

“Whether all of those things are tied together we can’t say for sure, but it is a pretty strong coincidence,” he observed.

Anyone with information is encouraged to submit a tip via or call Garfield County CrimeStoppers at 970-945-0101.
