Search Warrants Lead to Arrests

Morgan County Sheriff’s Office -

Tuesday April 23th, the Morgan County Sheriff's Office served a search warrant at 19605 Roediger Ave, located just outside the city limits of Fort Morgan. The warrant was served in collaboration with the Northeast Regional SWAT team, Fort Morgan Police Department, Brush Police Department, Sterling Police Department, Morgan County Ambulance Service - MCAS and the 13th District Attorney's Office.

The search warrant was issued based on a theft report that had been filed with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office. The suspects in the report were identified as Amber Wuchter and Damian Castillo, who had allegedly stolen two guns and multiple pieces of jewelry. It was suspected that both Wuchter and Castillo were at 19605 Roediger Avenue address.

On Wednesday, April 10th, the Morgan County Sheriff's Office responded to a possible arson fire at 19605 Roediger Ave, where a camper had been burned. The suspect in the arson was identified as Damian Castillo. During the investigation of the fire, the deputies noticed that Alturo (Andy) Romero, the property owner, was wearing one of the rings that had been reported stolen from the theft case. It was later discovered that Alturo Romero had pawned some of the other stolen property as well.

Based on this information and other evidence, a warrant was sought through Morgan County District Court for the property at 19605 Roediger Ave. When the warrant was executed, law enforcement officials found 12 individuals on the property. Three of the individuals, 70 year old Alturo (Andy) Romero, 52 year old Monty Holland, and 57 year old Keith Fletcher, had warrants for their arrest and were taken into custody without incident. During the search of the property, a baggy containing a white crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine was also found and collected.

The Morgan County Sheriff's Office would like to express our gratitude to all of the law enforcement agencies that collaborated in executing this warrant. We would also like to thank our community for their continued support and understanding of the inconvenience to the surrounding areas as these operations are executed.
