Man suspected of stealing car, breaking into Steamboat home

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A man faces a felony charge after being found passed out on a floor of a private residence and suspected of stealing a car in Steamboat Springs.

Early Saturday morning, police responded to a home on Emerald Court near Fish Creek Falls Road and Amethyst Drive.

At about 1:50 a.m., the 58-year-old female resident came downstairs and found 24-year-old Michael Pallos asleep on the floor, according to an arrest affidavit.

The resident also found an unknown Subaru in the driveway.

Police found Pallos’ phone and wallet in the front seat of the vehicle, and they found the car keys in his pants, according to the affidavit.

Police contacted the owner of the Subaru, who said it was missing from his driveway, and he had not given anyone permission to use it.

Pallos was taken to jail and booked on suspicion of felony second-degree motor vehicle theft and second-degree criminal trespassing.
