Breckenridge armed robbery suspect extended plea deal by district attorney
A deal has been extended to Kasey Hill, one of two suspects involved in an alleged 2013 armed robbery case in Breckenridge.
Hill, 27, appeared on bond with attorney Monica McElyea, of Breckenridge, for a disposition hearing Monday in Summit County District Court. The case was continued to provide Hill more time to consider the plea bargain offer from the district attorney’s office.
Hill is charged with two counts of felony aggravated robbery and one count each of felony conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and menacing. Hill also faces a crime of violence sentencing enhancer, as well as misdemeanor charges of theft and conspiracy to commit theft.
Deputy district attorney Rusty Prindle said after the hearing he was not at liberty to discuss the offer that’s on the table, saying it is not public information until the deal has been accepted. Hill is scheduled to return to chief judge Mark Thompson’s court at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 29, for a disposition hearing.
The charges against Hill stem from allegations that he and an accomplice, Bryan Orr, 27, held an individual at gunpoint in December 2013 and robbed him of money and a stash of marijuana, according to court records.
The victim reported that he flagged down Hill and Orr in a parking lot and asked them for a ride to his friend’s house in Blue River. Somewhere south of Breckenridge, one of the men allegedly pulled their vehicle over to the side of the road, pulled out a handgun and demanded the victim’s identification and other property, according to a Summit County Sheriff’s Office news release.
After the victim complied, the suspects drove him back to Breckenridge and dropped him off on south Main Street. The victim was able to get the license plate number of the vehicle and called 911.
At about 11 p.m. the night of the alleged crime, Hill and Orr were stopped traveling northbound on Colorado Highway 9 by Frisco police officers. Law enforcement officers located multiple weapons inside Hill and Orr’s vehicle including numerous firearms, a sword and a baseball bat, according to court records.
Both men were released from Summit County jail on $10,000 bond, according to court records. Orr, who faces similar charges, is scheduled to appear in district court at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 10, for a disposition hearing.
