Brothers receive 90-day sentence after posing as housekeepers
Steamboat Springs — Two brothers who posed as housekeepers and stole from condominiums in the Ski Time Square area have been sentenced to 90 days in jail.
Deven R. Arlington-Hernandez, 22, had been charged with six felonies and six misdemeanors.
Quishani D. Arlington, 24, was charged with one felony and two misdemeanors.
On Feb. 10, Steamboat Springs police officers responded to The Christie Club in Ski Time Square for a report of two men posing as housekeepers.
After being confronted by staff, the men fled. They were later found.
Staff members were suspicious, because there had been thefts at the condo complex in recent weeks.
Christie Club staff told police the men were seen knocking on a door with cleaning products and a laundry bag with towels.
As part of a plea deal, both men plead guilty this week to felony theft.
They will receive credit for time they have already served in jail.
Judge Shelley Hill sentenced the men to four years of supervised probation, 75 hours of useful public service and to take a 16-hour online theft class.
The brothers will also have to write letters of apology.
Quishani Arlington, who has no known criminal history, told Hill that he came to Steamboat for a temporary job and resorted to stealing.
“I hoped you learned from this,” Hill said.
Arlington has been incarcerated at the Routt County Jail since his arrest Feb. 10 and said he has been rehabilitated.
“I do feel sympathy for the individuals — the victims,” Arlington said.
