Welcome to Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
A manhunt for two fugitives who are accused of robbing a convenience store at gunpoint in Carbondale ended peacefully with their arrests this week. But the nearly two-day search had many valley residents on edge.
Joining me this week are Randy Essex, editor and publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent, Aspen Daily News Editor Curtis Wackerle and Aspen Times reporter Scott Condon. I speak with them first about the manhunt in Basalt.
