The Park County Sheriff’s Office this week announced the arrest of a Silverthorne man on suspicion of luring children.

Kenneth Louis Peters, 45, of Silverthorne, was arrested Sunday in Jefferson County on an outstanding Park County warrant. Peters is charged in Park Combined Court with one count each of internet luring of a child, enticement of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, all Class 4 felonies.

Peters is currently in custody at the Park County Jail and is being held without bond.

In a news release issued over the weekend, Park County Sheriff Fred Wegener commended the work of his school resource officers, detectives and officials with the Park County School District “for their unyielding efforts to bring this individual to justice and for protecting kids.”

The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available because the case involves juveniles.
