On January 6th, the Woodland Park Police Department (WPPD) received a call regarding an armed robbery at the Microtel Inn and Suites located on Country Dr.
A man wearing a ski mask and an Amazon jacket entered the hotel, brandishing a gun at the employees. He then made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
On Monday, Jan. 8, authorities identified the suspect involved in the incident as 38-year-old Kyle Jamison. According to the WPPD, Jamison was seen at a casino in Cripple Creek. The Cripple Creek Police Department and Colorado Division of Gaming agents made an effort to approach Jamison’s vehicle as it left the casino parking garage. However, Jamison responded by colliding with units from both departments. Thankfully, no officers sustained any injuries during this encounter.
The Teller County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) announced on Monday that they had found Jamison’s vehicle north of Cripple Creek, just off Highway 67.
The TCSO tracked Jamison for several miles through rough terrain and deep snow, leading to his capture just after 5 p.m. He was taken into custody and transported to the Pikes Peak Regional Hospital for hypothermia. The TCSO also revealed that Jamison is facing several felony warrants out of Colorado Springs and is currently on parole.
A man who was suspected of robbing a hotel in Woodland Park has been arrested on Monday near Cripple Creek, according to KRDO.
