Steamboat briefs: Charges filed in Monday night’s drugstore break-in

— The Routt County District Attorney’s Office filed charges Wednesday in Routt County Court against Christopher Timmerman, 23, of Steamboat Springs. Timmerman is accused of breaking into Lyon’s Corner Drug on Monday night and trying to take OxyContin, a prescription painkiller.

Timmerman has been charged with four felonies: second-degree burglary, felony theft of items valued at more than $1,000, possession of a Schedule 2 controlled substance and possession of burglary tools. He’s also been charged with two misdemeanors: criminal mischief and possession of a Schedule 5 controlled substance.

Deputy District Attorney Rusty Prindle is handling the case. The Schedule 2 substance was the OxyContin, and the Schedule 5 substance was prescription cough syrup containing promethazine, Prindle said.
