By  | 

A man who allegedly trashed his estranged wife's home and stole several guns, prompting lockouts at two Canon City schools, is now in custody.

Canon City police say 41-year-old James Brewer turned himself in over the weekend.

Brewer is accused of entering his wife's home on the morning of August 22, slashing up her bed and car seats, breaking CDs and photos, then stealing six guns.

Two schools were put on lockout status while police searched for the suspect. Police say the lockouts were precautionary only.

Brewer is now being held at the Fremont County Detention Center on charges of harassment, theft, criminal mischief and domestic violence. He's being held on a no bond hold.
