Carbondale Police Department

A man was found dead in Carbondale on Saturday night. Police are investigating what they’re tentatively calling an accident.

Carbondale police chief Gene Schilling acknowledged the town has seen a “spat of serious crime” over the past few years. There was a homicide and several armed robberies.

In mid-February, two men allegedly robbed the Cowen Convenience store in Carbondale at gunpoint. They were arrested days later and have been in Garfield County Jail since.

The two men who are suspected of robbing a convenience store at gunpoint last week in Carbondale have safely been taken into custody.
