Child safe, dad arrested after Amber Alert; Jarred Spencer faces charges of kidnapping, child abuse

WELLINGTON, Colo. - Deputies found a child who was the subject of a Wednesday night Amber Alert and arrested his father.

The series of events began around 5:11 p.m., when deputies with the Larimer County Sheriff's Office were sent to the 7300 block of View Pointe Circle in Wellington over a violation of a protection order. They found an adult woman who was injured and was taken to the hospital.

Just after 10 p.m., Sheriff's Office announced the alert and search for Blue Lee Spencer from Wellington. At the time, they said they believed the boy was with his father, 32-year-old Jarred Lee Spencer.

The alert was canceled just after midnight, when the child was found and Jarred Spencer was arrested.

Prior to the issuing of the Amber Alert, Jarred Spencer's father had told authorities his son violated a protection order. He also believed his son was having a paranoid episode and was speaking of a possible bomb in his truck, people in his attic and basement and blood coming from the child’s rectum.

Spencer also told his father there were bruises on the child. Authorities also spoke with the child's mother who had "obvious injuries" but she would not say how she got them.

Now that he is arrested, the Sheriff's Office says Jarred Spencer faces charges of second degree kidnapping, third degree assault, menacing, false imprisonment, child abuse and domestic abuse.
