Man Surrenders To SWAT Team, Without Incident

Joseph J. Morrison, 41, of Clifton

Clifton Man Surrenders To SWAT Team, Charged With Sex Crime

Mesa County, Colo. -- Deputies were dispatched to a reported sex assault shortly after 6 a.m. this morning, on Tracy Drive, in Clifton. Through the course of investigation, the suspect was identified as Joseph Jeffrey Morrison, 41.

Joseph was previously booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility twice in April 2015, on methamphetamine related charges. He was charged with one count of sexual assault on an at-risk adult, today. That charge is a class 2 felony. This case remains active and on-going, with additional charges likely.

Due to information from people who left the house and spoke with deputies on-scene, along with his criminal history, the Mesa County SWAT Team along with two of the agency's negotiators, were called to Tracy Drive shortly after noon. Ultimately, Joseph exited the residence without incident and was taken into custody. He currently is being held without bond.
