Man taken into custody in connection with 6 burglaries

A Littleton man has been taken into custody on suspicion of committing six burglaries — three in Kittredge on Dec. 2 and three in Evergreen on Nov. 2.

Titus Emilyon, 38, is facing six counts of second-degree burglary, six counts of third-degree burglary, felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor theft. According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Emilyon has a history of committing commercial burglaries and was on parole for a burglary conviction when he was arrested.

JCSO investigators have been investigating almost 20 other commercial burglaries in unincorporated Jefferson County dating back to Oct. 30, including Parkside Café and Evergreen Cleaners in Bergen Park, and Mac Nation in Indian Hills. There also have been several burglaries in Clear Creek County including the Kum & Go in Idaho Springs, Dairy Queen in Empire and Pho Bay in Georgetown.

JCSO officials have not determined whether Emilyon is responsible for additional burglaries, but it will work with other jurisdictions to investigate all of the crimes, JCSO spokeswoman Jenny Fulton said.

On Dec. 2, the Kittredge General Store, SaBella and Blackbird Café were burglarized between 11:17 and 11:27 p.m., all three with similarities: Someone gained entry by smashing glass doors, took the cash registers and left. On Nov. 2, someone used the same method to burglarize Coal Mine Dragon, Bistro Del Lago and Everbean by the Lake in the Lakepoint Center.

According to a news release, at 11:50 p.m. Dec. 2, Jeffco deputies found Emilyon parked along Highway 74 less than two miles west of Kittredge.

“Emilyon was in the driver’s seat and was taken into custody after broken glass was seen on his person, a discarded cash register was located a short distance away, and other evidence was found both inside and outside the vehicle,” the release stated.
