Naked couple arrested for criminal trespassing

It’s not exactly “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” but a Fraser man returned to his apartment last week to find a naked couple sleeping in his bed, according to a Fraser-Winter Park Police report.

There was no happy ending for the suspects in the case, either, as they were booked into the Grand County Jail on a charge of 1st degree criminal trespassing, a class 5 felony.

Rowland Schwenker told police he left his Fraser apartment on Tuesday afternoon, March 17, and returned at about 3 a.m. Wednesday, only to find his bedroom door slightly ajar, which made him suspicious because he was sure he had closed it.

When he entered the room, he turned on the light and saw several items scattered about the floor. Then, he told police, he saw a couple sleeping naked on his bed.

He identified them as Mary H. Dixon, 28, of Fraser, and Jared P. Minton, 26, of Sommerville, Mass., The couple were waiting in the apartment complex parking lot with Schwenker when police arrived.

The police report says the suspects appeared to be intoxicated, which subsequent tests confirmed. Apparently, they ended up in Schwenker’s apartment, which is adjacent to Dixon’s apartment, because Dixon lost her purse and jacket at the bar and they were “freezing.”

Based on evidence at the scene, the police report says Schwenker told them it appears the couple came in through the bedroom window, knocking down two unattached doors in the process, which damaged a turntable and a television set.

The arresting officer described the couple in his report as “apologetic and cooperative” throughout the booking process.
