Statement by Acting U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer regarding ransom kidnapping incident that concluded this past weekend

DENVER – Acting U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer released the following statement regarding the alleged ransom kidnapping incident that concluded this past weekend:

 “Thanks to the hard work of law enforcement, a man who was kidnapped and held for ransom was safely recovered, and three men allegedly responsible for this crime were arrested.  The way law enforcement agencies responded to this rapidly evolving crime shows that collaboration leads to success.  Special recognition should go to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office, the FBI, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Lakewood Police Department, and others, who worked selflessly for the good of the public.

 “The U.S. Attorney’s Office has been actively involved in this investigation since the beginning of this crime and is assessing federal charges at this time.”
