Man accused of stealing
A Grand Junction man has been arrested after he allegedly broke into a neighbor’s house last week and stole thousands of dollars worth of property, including firearms.
Shane Taylor Luster, 39, was advised Monday he could be charged with second-degree burglary, theft and criminal mischief. A judge ordered him held in the Mesa County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.
A woman called police on Thursday morning to report that a man, later identified as Luster, had jumped a fence and entered a home in the 200 block of Dartmouth Lane. Mesa County sheriff’s deputies arrived, found Luster still inside the house and arrested him, according to an arrest affidavit.
Luster had several bags, backpacks and firearm cases with him when he was taken into custody. Deputies found a multitude of items in those bags, including four firearms, knives, fishing lures, clothes and video games. Altogether, the items were valued at $4,000, the affidavit said.
