SILVERTHORNE – A Saturday locker theft at the Silverthorne Recreation Center may be connected to a similar theft at the Breckenridge Recreation Center.

“We think it’s related,” said Silverthorne’s public information officer Veronica Nicholas. “It’s the same suspect for (locked locker) thefts at the Breck rec center. We’re working with Breckenridge.”

The Silverthorne Police Department said it needs the community’s help to identify the theft suspect – a small photo was taken of the man.

According to Nicholas, the theft occurred Saturday when the suspect walked into the Silverthorne Recreation Center’s men’s locker room. He broke into a locked locker and stole multiple items, including cash, phones and credit cards.

The man is described as white and in his 20s. He stands between 5’11” and 6’2,” and he has a thin build. The suspect was last seen wearing a white baseball cap, black sunglasses, a white sweater with blue or gray horizontal stripes and light-colored pants.

Silverthorne Recreation Center staff has plans to improve the men’s locker room, though funding is still pending. There’s currently $55,000 in Silverthorne’s 2010 asset management plan to replace the men’s locker room lockers and countertops.

Silverthorne’s financial director Donna Braun anticipates the project will happen – “It’s probably a good time to be replacing them,” she said.

Anyone with information about the suspect or theft should contact the Silverthorne Police Department at (970) 262-7320.
