Authorities in Colorado are looking for a woman who robbed a liquor store in Denver last week while she was caring for two young children — one of whom helped her with the robbery, according to police.

The incident at an East Alameda Ave. liquor store occurred Oct. 9 at about 2:10 p.m., according to a Denver Police Department tweet.

The woman, who has not been identified, entered the liquor store and soon proceeded to rummage through shelves and the cash registers, “taking a large sum of money.”

The manager of the liquor store told FOX31 the woman made off with several thousand dollars, though an exact amount wasn’t made public.

Denver Police said the woman had a boy and a girl with her who both appeared to be approximately 6 years old. The 6-year-old boy helped in the search for cash behind the counter of the store, according to police.

Police released a photo of the woman caught on surveillance cameras as she spoke on her phone and walked through the store.

Before hitting the liquor store, the woman also walked into a convenience store in the same strip mall and allegedly used her children there, too, as a diversion while she pilfered items such as lotion and body wash.

“It’s not an excuse to use your kids to do such a thing,” the manager of the convenience store told FOX31.

Uber driver who fatally shot drunken passenger not guilty of murder

Westlake Legal Group uber Uber driver who fatally shot drunken passenger not guilty of murder Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/us-regions/west/colorado fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox news fnc/us fnc article 71ee5e1d-3933-5461-9197-a5fb439d7125

The Uber driver who fatally shot a drunken, unruly passenger was found not guilty of murder by a Colorado jury on Thursday.

Michael Hancock, 31, picked up Hyun Kim, 45, outside a karaoke bar in June 2018. Hancock said that during the ride, Kim made unwanted sexual advances and attacked him when he threatened to pull over — the crux of a self-defense defense.

When Hancock arrived at Kim’s destination two miles away, surveillance video showed Kim– who had a blood alcohol content level of .308 when the autopsy was performed — did not get out of the car.

Uber records showed that by the time Hancock shot Kim, the car had traveled about 70 miles from the spot Kim was picked up.

ARKANSAS WOMAN CLAIMS BROTHER FED HER ‘METH SANDWICH’

Defense lawyers said Hancock demanded that Kim enter another address into the Uber app. They said Kim touched Hancock more than once on the leg and became aggressive. Kim punched the driver in the face and reached for the steering wheel and ignition. Prosecutors said Hancock stopped the car, went to the front passenger side where Kim was sitting, and fired 10 bullets from his semi-automatic handgun. At least five struck Kim.

A witness called 911 and Hancock’s defense said Hancock got on the phone, told dispatchers he had been attacked and asked first responders to hurry so Kim might live, according to KMGH-TV.

EL PASO WALMART MASSACRE SUSPECT PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO CAPITAL MURDER CHARGES

Defense lawyer Johnna Stuart said Hancock tried to jump out of his still-rolling car, but Kim attempted to pull him back by his dreadlocks,  prompting Hancock to grab the gun.

Prosecutors said it was possible Kim did not get out at his destination because he was passed out and Hancock drove around to increase the fare. They acknowledged that Kim likely provoked a fight in the car, but said he could have woken up startled and upset about being driven around in the car. Hancock did have an injury above his eyebrow after the killing, but prosecutors said it was not serious enough for him to have reasonably feared for his life.

Uber records showed no previous altercations for either man.

Deputy District Attorney Brenna Zortman said she believed Hancock was sorry for shooting Kim but said the killing was deliberate. “Regret does not negate intent,” she said.

As the not-guilty verdict was read, Hancock’s family hugged, sobbed and cheered. The attorney who represents Kim’s kin said they plan to file a wrongful-death lawsuit against Uber.

Colorado woman charged by 2 moose during hike, escapes unharmed

A Colorado woman’s quick thinking helped her avoid serious injury after a pair of moose charged her while she was on a recent hike.

Audrey Dickinson of Fort Collins was hiking the Uneva Pass near Copper Mountain, located between Vail and Silverthorne, when she spotted a moose appear from the woods.

“I know you should be 75 feet from them and I was 200 feet from them,” she told FOX31.

FLORIDA WILDLIFE OFFICIALS CAPTURE 18-FOOT, 98-POUND BURMESE PYTHON

As she was watching the first moose, a second animal then showed up as she began to back away. Video taken by Dickinson showed the moose walking in the distance and staring at her before eventually charging towards her as she ran away.

Dickinson said she had to hide behind a tree several times to avoid being hit by the moose.

“I thought about going to a switchback behind me, but when I started moving, they started running again,” she told FOX31. “So I got back to the tree.”

SIX ELEPHANTS FALL TO THEIR DEATH TRYING TO SAVE EACH OTHER AT THAI WATERFALL

Colorado Parks and Wildlife said peak mating season for moose and elk — known as “the rut” –lasts through early October. The agency has warned motorists to be aware of animals that are more active, easily distracted and potentially more aggressive.

“Both bulls and cows are aggressive during the breeding season, with bulls often fighting head to head until the dominant bull drives off, injures, or even kills the challenger,” the agency states.

That also applies to people enjoying the outdoors. The agency told FOX31 that people should remember to give plenty of space for wildlife, including putting an object between oneself and an animal.

Dickinson said she was eventually able to get away after standing by a tree for another few minutes.

“It could have been much worse,” she told FOX31. “It’s never worth it. I was really looking forward to this nice, long hike. The hike will be there another day.”

Colorado wildfire grows to nearly 6,000 acres, spurs evacuations

A wildfire burning in central Colorado continues to grow as air quality advisories were issued for parts of the state Saturday due to smoke and up to 300 people have been evacuated.

The Decker Fire has been burning since Sept. 8 after it was started by a lightning strike, but in recent days has been growing as windy weather pushed the blaze closer toward homes in the area.

The National Interagency Fire Center said late Saturday the wildfire’s northernmost burn area is about two miles south of Salida, Colo., located about 100 miles west of Pueblo. The blaze has grown to about 5,921 acres and is only 5 percent contained.

“It’s kind of nerve-wracking because you know there’s homes up there,” Salida resident JoAnna Fisher told FOX31 on Saturday and she watched smoke billowing into the sky from her front porch.

The blaze has spurred mandatory evacuations in several subdivisions, causing some 300 people to be evacuated from about 130 homes. The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook that one home has burned so far in Fremont County while another has burned in Chafee County.

Around 806 personnel are assigned to the fire, which has closed multiple roads in Chaffee, Fremont and Saguache Counties.

“Hopefully they get it under control,” Salida Tyler Fisher told FOX31.

Officials issued a red flag warning on Saturday out of concern that high winds from the west could push the blaze eastward.

“Once established, wind-driven spot fires could spread quickly,” officials said on a Facebook page set up to monitor the blaze.

The Thornton Fire Department shared photos to Twitter of aircraft being deployed to help fight the blaze.

By Saturday night, the fire was reported to be “less alive” than in previous days, but officials were cautious that strong winds could “increase fire behavior.”

An evacuation center has been established at the First United Methodist Church of Salida. The sheriff’s office said that the Chaffee County Fairgrounds is in need of donations of hay, to assist in feeding evacuated animals.

Humidity levels are expected to rise on Sunday, but strong winds are forecast to return by Monday that may fan the spread of flames this week.

“Potential still exists for alignment for large fire growth,” fire officials said.

Two people were injured Thursday after an elk violently charged at a woman in Estes Park, Colorado, officials said.

In a video recorded by a witness, a woman can be seen on the ground using her feet to fend off a bull elk that had charged at her with its antlers.

The adult male, which can weigh up to 1,100 pounds and can stand at 5-feet tall, backs off before charging at the woman after she begins to move.

In a second video, Estes Park public works employee Brian Berg is seen driving his Ford Ranger pickup truck between the woman and the bull elk. At that point, the animal charges at the car and strikes it head-on.

“I’ve never had to do that before, but I saw people in trouble and I figured I could get there quick,” Berg told FOX31. “I knew the best thing for me to do at that point in time was to get the truck in between them.”

A second man was injured during the incident after he jumped out of the way of the animal, slipped and hit his head on a rock, NBC News reported. He can be seen in the video on the ground not far from the woman.

“We are in the rut (breeding season) and bull elk will very aggressively defend their harems. Bull elk will fight over breeding rights,” he said. “Let the elk move away on their own, never ever get that close because something like this could happen.”

Officials said they had an issue with the same elk the day prior.

American Airlines flight diverted to Denver after unruly passenger reportedly smokes weed on board

An unruly passenger forced an American Airlines flight from Arizona to Minnesota to make an emergency landing on Friday after the suspect allegedly told people he was on cocaine before locking himself in the airplane bathroom and eventually lighting up marijuana in the cabin, according to a report.

Nearly an hour into the flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis, the pilot announced that there was  “a security issue in the back,” which required the flight to be diverted and land in Denver, Colorado.

ALASKA AIRLINES, ALLEGIANT HAVE CLEANEST AIRPLANE WATER, STUDY SAYS 

TMZ reported that passengers heard rumblings about a man in the back telling others on the flight he was on cocaine. Soon after, the man reportedly ran to the bathroom in the back of the plane, locking himself in for 10 minutes as flight attendants tried to get him out.

As the plane was about to land, the man exited the lavatory and went back to his seat, where he was described as very jittery, according to TMZ.

Once the plane was safely on the runway, a video shows the man being confronted by the flight attendance staff, as well as police officers and EMT.

That’s when he decided to light up what appeared to be a joint, as staff attempted to grab it, TMZ reported.

AMERICAN AIRLINES CREW ‘NOT COMFORTABLE’ WITH MUSLIM MEN ON FLIGHT, THEY CLAIM

The pilot was heard asking the first 13 rows of passengers to exit the plane so they could remove the man in question, who reportedly punched one of the other passengers as they attempted to exit.

The unidentified man was eventually handcuffed by police, who placed him on a stretcher where he was heard screaming, “Take it off, it hurts. I’ll f***ing kill you!” TMZ reported.

The plane departed for Minneapolis two hours later, according to the outlet.

A rep for American Airlines confirmed to Fox News on Saturday that Flight 2408 was diverted due to a “disruptive passenger” and that law enforcement me the aircraft before it re-departed. The spokesperson thanked the flight crew for taking care of the other passengers during the incident.

A man is facing a driving under the influence charge after striking a police officer while driving a scooter and then crashing into a parked car in downtown Denver on Saturday, according to officials.

The Denver Police Department said on Twitter the incident happened around 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of 21st and Market Streets near Coors Field.

The scooter operator struck a police officer who was directing traffic at the intersection before crashing into a parked vehicle.

Former candidate for Idaho governor probed in Colorado girl’s 1984 murder

A former candidate for governor of Idaho has said he’s under investigation in the cold-case killing of a 12-year-old Colorado girl 35 years ago.

Steve Pankey made the revelation during an interview with the Idaho Statesman  this week.

The paper, citing a warrant, said authorities believe Pankey is a person of interest in the 1984 kidnapping and murder of Jonelle Matthews. A search of Pankey’s Twin Falls home was conducted last week.

Pankey, 68, and his former wife lived two miles away from Matthews when she disappeared from her Greeley, Colo., home on Dec. 20, 1984, after returning from a Christmas concert with her classmates.

FLORIDA MAN’S SKELETAL REMAINS DISCOVERED AFTER UNDERWATER CAR SPOTTED ON GOOGLE EARTH

Greeley police said a construction crew found Matthews’ remains on July 23 of this year while excavating for a pipeline in a rural area.

Pankey claimed he gave authorities a DNA sample last month. However, Greeley police said it never made such a request. Pankey has not been charged in connection with Matthews’ death.

“Steve Pankey has made repeated efforts to speak with detectives throughout this investigation,” the department told KDVR-TV. “Greeley detectives went to Twin Falls, Idaho, on Aug. 15 efforting a conversation.  During the interaction, Pankey refused to speak with detectives for reasons unknown.”

Pankey unsuccessfully ran for Idaho governor in 2014 as a Constitution Party candidate and ran in the 2018 Republican primary. He finished fifth in a seven-person race with 1.4 percent of the vote.

“I’m trying to be transparent,” he told the Statesman. “I have nothing to hide.”

DNA LEADS TO IDENTITY OF SUSPECT IN 1972 MURDER OF CALIFORNIA GIRL, 11

Investigators have asked Pankey multiple times about Matthews, but Pankey said he won’t speak without his attorney present.

He said he moved to Greeley in 1973 and was accused of “date rape” in 1977 by a woman he was dating. He was criminally charged, but the charge was later dismissed. He was also charged with as many as 20 misdemeanors in Colorado that included harassment.

Pankey claimed he was home with his then-wife on the night Matthews vanished. He left the next morning to visit family in California and returned to Colorado on Dec. 26, 1984, he said.

“I never met Jonelle, I never met her family, I didn’t know she existed or disappeared until Wednesday, Dec. 26, [1984],” he said.

Pankey said he moved to Idaho in 1987 and hasn’t been back to Colorado since.

An embarrassed country music star Dierks Bentley tweeted a video on Labor Day showing the singer getting cited by a Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer for fishing without a license.

“Hey Luke, those fish we caught in the Cottonwood Creek this week here in Buena Vista, we should probably getting a fishing license next time because I just got pulled over,” Bentley said in a Twitter video that tagged fellow country music superstars Luke Bryan and Hardy.

Bentley, who was in Colorado and headlined Sunday’s Seven Peaks Festival, had posted a picture on Instagram with a fish and a message directed toward Bryan boasting he had caught more fish than him.

@lukebryan only caught one and this is my third in 30 mins,” Bentley wrote, with the Instagram post garnering attention from Colarado Parks and Wildlife.

“You’re next,” Bentley warned Bryan jokingly before the officer writing the ticket in the Twitter video said, “Hi, Luke.”

Bryan headlined Saturday’s festival lineup.

The “Drunk On A Plane” singer seemed to enjoy being ticketed noting in his tweet that he appreciated being treated like a “regular person” and pledging to get a license next time.

“Actually appreciate the ticket. Appreciate being treated like a regular person. Appreciate what @COParksWildlife does. I’ll be all licensed up next time!” Bentley’s tweet read.

A Colorado couple defended themselves Monday night with a baseball bat when a bear entered their home in rural Jefferson County.

The couple– including a 71-year-old man– went into the kitchen to investigate a noise and saw that a bear and her cub had entered through a screen door and started eating a loaf of bread.

The man hit the bear and his wife attacked it with a baseball bat until both bears ran out through the screen door.

The man had scratches and cuts on his face and arms and his wife was uninjured.

The mother bear was found and euthanized. Colorado Parks and Wildlife law says a bear must be euthanized if it attacks a person. The cub was not found.

Wildlife officials said bears are especially active this time of year as they try to eat as much food as possible before winter hibernation. The color of the bear was unclear.
