    Christopher David Sullivan was charged Aug. 5 with trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude, a felony. The charge is related to the 17-year-old girl with Sullivan during a carjacking/burglary rampage that ended when Sullivan was tackled by Deputy Fred Haggett on Interstate 70.

  • Crime spree ends with I-70 arrest

    A feverish crime spree on a dog-day afternoon ended abruptly in the westbound lanes of I-70 on July 23 when a Jeffco sheriff's deputy brought a suspect to heel on the busy highway.

    All told, the carjacking/burglary rampage involved four vehicles and three homes, sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said. It ended dramatically near the Genesee exit when Deputy Fred Haggett tackled the male suspect, who had just surrendered two weapons after terrorizing passing motorists on I-70.

    “He was trying to get into and hijack another vehicle; I couldn’t let that happen,” Haggett said.

    Haggett tackled Christopher David Sullivan on Interstate 70 near Lookout Mountain on July 23 after a burglary and carjacking spree.

  • Depth is a concern for Clear Creek girls, boys in 2014

    The tears literally flowed from Jeff Miller when the Clear Creek cross country coach learned that Katie Sullivan was relocating to Summit. It wasn’t just because she was expected to be the Lady Golddiggers’ third best returning runner, but because she is a great kid in general.

    But Sullivan isn’t back and neither is Grace Diekman, a 2014 graduate who was the team’s No. 3 runner in 2013, leaving some uncertainty in Clear Creek’s pecking order with the cross country season around the corner.
