Boy suspected of auto theft

A 13-year-old Montrose boy was arrested Saturday on suspicion of aggravated motor vehicle theft, reckless driving, failure to report an accident and driving without a license after he was accused of stealing his grandmother’s car and taking two friends for a ride, according to Montrose Police Chief Tom Chinn.

The boy reportedly drove the car into some brush, spun donuts, then returned the car to his grandmother, who was not happy and wanted to pursue charges, Chinn said.

The case was referred to the District Attorney’s Office.

Urinating leads to arrest


Samuel Cordova, 19, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of criminal impersonation, illegal possession of ethyl alcohol by an underage person and urinating in public in the 400 block of Colorado Avenue, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

An officer reportedly saw Cordova urinating in an alley and confronted Cordova, who said he was “Joseph Quintana” but didn’t have an ID. Officers found his wallet in his back packet, which contained several ID cards reading “Samuel Cordova.”

A man who said he was a friend of Cordova’s walked up to the scene and confirmed the man’s name was Samuel Cordova, according to the arrest report.

When an officer told Cordova he would just receive a summons and be released if he gave his real name but would be taken to jail if he lied, Cordova reportedly said again his name was Joseph Quintana.

At the jail, an officer found a phone number listed to Samuel Cordova and called it. The phone Cordova had rang, the report said.
