On June 12, 2007, an aggravated robbery occurred at Bob's Liquors which is located at 3601 West Colorado. Do Kyoung Choi was working behind the counter when a white male, approached the counter to make a purchase.

The suspect realized he didn't have enough money for the transaction and then ran out of the door with two bottles of liquor. Choi followed the man and confronted him.

The suspect took one of the bottles of liquor he had stolen and hit Choi in the head with the bottle causing it to break. The suspect pulled out a handgun and told Choi not to follow him or he would be shot.

The investigation revealed, when the bottle broke, it cut the suspect's face and therefore left blood at the scene. The victim had blood from the suspect on his clothing which was submitted for DNA testing. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation required a DNA sample from the victim for comparison before proceeding with the DNA testing.

On January 5, 2010, a DNA sample had been developed by CBI from the blood left by the suspect in this case.

On January 19, 2010, Sheriff's Investigators were notified a match had been found in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) for the DNA profile of the suspect.

The suspect was identified as Marvin Leclaire, a 22-year-old male currently in custody at the Criminal Justice Center on several other felonies including other unrelated robbery charges.

As a result of this ongoing investigation and with the results of the DNA match provided by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, Leclaire has been charged with Aggravated Robbery, Second Degree Assault, and Felony Menacing.

These charges carry a $25,000 bond however he is being held with no bond as a result of other charges and warrants.

    My comment has to say that people need to pick and choose there battles. And to arrest a man who was a kid when he perform these supposed acts he is accused of and not to charge a man who had broke the law first with the intent to sell alochol to minor.And he already has admitted guilt to doing so. Two wrongs will only make two wrongs but is it a game of follow the leader?

    after he gets out, and he will get out, his only options will be panhandling and/or homelessness anyway; prison may seem like a better option to him at that point - as it obviously does now
