On April 1, 2024, at approximately 5:15 p.m., while investigating an unrelated call at

1010 North 7 th Street #11, Sterling Police officers saw an adult male whom they

positively identified as Kolt Lee Jones, D.O.B. 07/48/1983. Jones was wanted by

Sterling Police on an arrest warrant for attempted felony vehicular assault,

stemming from an incident on March 27, 2024.

refusing to comply with orders. Due to the violent criminal and past weapons

immediate area and requested the assistance of the Northeast Regional SWAT

team. The Northeast Regional SWAT team includes members from the Sterling

Police Department, Logan County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Morgan Police Department,

Morgan County Sheriff's Office, and the Brush Police Department.

A search warrant was obtained by Sterling Police detectives and over the course of

the next few hours, SWAT and negotiators made numerous attempts to

communicate with Jones, who would not respond. At approximately 8:30 p.m.,

contact was made with Jones who came out peacefully and was taken into custody

without further incident.

Kolt Lee Jones was arrested and held without bond, charged with the following:
