State Sen. Steve King defrauded the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado Mesa University of thousands of dollars over a five-month period last year, Arapahoe County prosecutors alleged Wednesday in a criminal complaint.
This, as Mesa County’s former Republican nominee for sheriff remains under investigation.
A complaint filed in Mesa County by 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler charged King with embezzlement of public property as a Class 5 felony; forgery as a Class 5 felony; second-degree forgery as a Class 1 misdemeanor; theft as a Class 6 felony and first-degree official misconduct as a Class 2 misdemeanor.
Grand Junction police say an investigation continues and a Clifton boy is in custody after he managed to hide two high-powered rifles in his pants and walk out of Cabela’s at Mesa Mall, prompting a large response Tuesday night by Grand Valley law enforcement agencies.
