Police urge citizens to be cautious in wake of two car thefts in Kremmling

Kremmling Police are urging residents not to leave their cars running unattended and not to leave keys in their cars in the wake of two car thefts in town within four days.

The first theft occurred at about 8:30 a.m. March 4 when a resident left her car running in front of her house, said Police Chief Scott Spade. She actually “watched her car drive away,” he said.

That car was recovered at about 10 a.m. the same morning on Highway 131 near Yampa when the Colorado State Patrol arrested the driver, Tobias Dean Bleeker, 42, of Johnstown, on car theft and “numerous other charges,” Spade said.

The second car theft occurred between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. on March 8. A resident had left keys in the unlocked vehicle while it was parked at work only to find it missing later. The 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer has still not been recovered, Spade said.
