The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help with information about seven suspects who last weekend burglarized Anderson Farms in Erie.
The crime occurred Saturday after Anderson Farms closed early due to heavy rains. The seven suspects arrived about 10 p.m., likely thinking the business was still open for another hour. When they discovered Anderson Farms was closed, the suspects broke into the property.
The seven suspects proceeded to joyride in ATVs and golf carts, break into different buildings on the property, steal food and staff shirts, and cause a variety of property damage ranging from smashing pumpkins and discharging fire extinguishers to breaking windows and damaging fences, barriers and rope stands. Five days after the crime, business owners are still calculating the total damage.
The suspects were captured on security camera video and appear to be high school-age kids. Anyone with information is asked to call Deputy David McFarlane at (970) 400-2466.
Anyone with information regarding this or any other crime is asked to call the Weld County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 356-4015 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted through the Crime Stoppers website at www.crimeshurt.com. Those submitting tips through Crime Stoppers that lead to the arrest and filing of charges on a suspect(s) may be eligible for a cash reward.
