Mesa County, Colo. -- At 1:50 p.m. today, an adult female reported to 911 that a younger male, possibly early 20's age range, entered her home in the 2200 block of H Road, Grand Junction. The suspect attempted to take video game equipment from the living room area when the homeowner confronted the suspect. The male suspect left the home on foot without the gaming equipment.

Deputies, officers from the Grand Junction Police Department, officers with Fruita Police Department--to include a tracking K-9, and Colorado State Patrol troopers saturated the area around 22.5 and H Roads, immediately following the call into dispatch. Law enforcement remained in the area for about an hour and a half trying to locate the suspect. A message was sent to just over 1,000 landlines within one mile of the victim's home asking residents to be watchful of the suspect.

The suspect was last seen wearing a camouflage beanie, jeans and a black hoodie. He is a white male with a medium build. Anyone with information about this burglary or suspect should call 911 or Crimestopper of Mesa County, to remain anonymous. Updates on this case will be provided as they become available.
