Basalt Police Release Images Of Robbery Suspect

Jan 15, 2015

Basalt Police continue to look for a suspect who robbed a liquor store with a knife Friday night. This week they released photographs. 

Just before 10 o’clock Friday night, a man robbed Jimbo’s Wine and Liquor downtown. Police report the man took out a knife and told a store employee to open the cash register. He got away with close to $1400.

On Monday the department released three images captured on a surveillance camera at Jimbo’s. Greg Knott is Chief of Police.

"The person was wearing a gray beanie-style cap, a black neoprene facemask and a very white puffy coat. On the back of that coat, it has quite a distinctive pattern, like a cinch-strap. And, the suspect was wearing black ski pants and dark shoes."

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Basalt Police. Knott says armed robberies in the Roaring Fork Valley are rare.
