Sunday evening into Monday morning offers the best window for locally heavy rain and snow. The mountains will see significant snow. Rain and snow chances continue into Monday as the system exits Monday night... head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
Seven people have been arrested in connection to a string of home burglaries in the Black Forest and Monument area.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says they have recovered more than $100,000 worth of stolen items including vehicles, firearms, jewelry, cash and appliances.
Investigators say at one location they recovered so many stolen items that they had to bring in a 26-foot moving truck during the recovery.
Victims reported seeing a suspicious person wearing a reflective safety vest. That piece of information enabled law enforcement officers to identify Ernesto Quintana as a suspect.
The Sheriff's Office says they quickly realized the burglaries they were investigating were linked to incidents in other jurisdictions.
Investigators say Jake Cox, 27; Ernesto Quintana, 24; Robert Bowick, 25; Richard Flewwellin, 41; Ekaterina Dettling, 28; Jose Hernandez, 35; and Winter Womack, 22, are responsible for more than 110 cases.
