Man faces six felonies

— A Routt County man faces six felony charges after stolen items were sold to a Steamboat Springs pawn shop.

Casey J. Baverstock, 42, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of theft and five counts of prohibited acts involving a pawn broker.

On Tuesday, Baverstock’s father contacted the Routt County Sheriff’s Office to report he came home from a seven-month vacation and discovered items missing from his house. The items were a 40-inch television worth $800 and four tools. The total value of the missing items was $2,385.

According to an arrest affidavit, the father suspected Baverstock took the items, because he was the only one who knew how to access the property. The father did not have a relationship with Baverstock and told deputies he was in the process of getting a restraining order.

According to the affidavit, deputies went to a Steamboat pawn shop and learned Baverstock had pawned the items in January, May and June.

The pawn shop provided deputies with the signed pawn statement indicating Baverstock understood it was a felony to make false statements on the contract, according to the affidavit.

Deputies contacted Baverstock at work. According to the affidavit, Baverstock told deputies “Don’t worry about it. I’ll take care of it with my dad.”

Baverstock was arrested, and his bond was set at $12,000.
