Avon, CO – Avon Police Chief Greg Daly, Officer Bryan Mullet and Administrative Services Officer Lacey Chon were recently presented with Joint Operations Awards from the Chicago Police Department for their collaborative work on a 2015 case that started in Avon and ended up in Chicago.
The original investigation related to a stolen SUV and fraudulent use of a credit card. The SUV was located by Chicago PD on a traffic stop for speeding. Subsequently, it was revealed that the vehicle was stolen from a rental company in Avon and was leased using fraudulent identification and credit card information. Chicago PD contacted Chief Daly and Officer Mullet and, through a coordination of efforts, they were able to identify the offender in Chicago as the offender whom leased the vehicle using the stolen identification materials. Chief Daly, Officer Mullet and Administrative Services Officer Lacey Chon generated an arrest warrant with nationwide extradition to return the offender to Colorado to answer for his part in the multitude of crimes. The suspect, who had been released after being processed for the immediate local charges in Chicago, was later arrested and transported to Eagle County for prosecution.
Chief Daly, Officer Mullet, Administrative Services Officer Lacey Chon and the rest of the Avon Police Department would like to thank the men and women of the Chicago Police Department for recognizing their dedication and professionalism in assisting to remove a dangerous felon from the streets of Chicago.
Avon PD, Count on Us!
