Over 30 locker room thefts in Arvada during past year

ARVADA, Colo. - More than 30 locker room thefts have been reported in the last year at recreation centers in the Arvada area and police on Wednesday released surveillance photos of the three suspects.

The group forcibly removes locks from lockers and also takes advantage of unlocked areas. They've stolen cellphones, keys and credit cards.

According to Arvada police spokeswoman Jill McGranahan, the credit cards have been used at nearby stores in Arvada, Lakewood and Wheat Ridge.

All three suspects are males, between 20 and 30 years of age and between 5-feet-9 and 6-feet tall.

Two of them are white, one with brown hair and the other with blond hair. They both are described as having a medium-to-heavy build.

The third suspect is Hispanic and has brown hair.

The white man with brown hair was seen on surveillance video wearing a red shirt, blue jeans and a black jacket. No clothing descriptions were provided for the other suspects.

The three men are all associated with a dark colored four-door sedan, possibly an early 1990s Pontiac Bonneville.

Because of the pattern, the three men are believed to be from the area.

Anyone who recognizes the suspects or their car is asked to call the Arvada Police Department at 720-898-6900.
