Deputies with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office have arrested 22-year-old Dwain Boyd in connection with the theft of a fallen airman's belongings.

The widow's car was broken into February 9th. She was here in Colorado Springs for her hero's memorial and stopped to eat lunch at the Golden Corrall. Senior Airman Bradley Smith's laptop, camera and dogtags were stolen.

Dwain Boyd was located as a result of following up on information revealed during the investigation of this crime. Deputies say that unfortunately the property has not been located.

Boyd has been charged with Felony Theft, First Degree Criminal Trespass, Conspiracy, and Obstruction. Boyd is being held at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center on a $3500 bond.

Deputies arrested another suspect, 29-year-old Denard Thompson, last week.

    Oh please, DOTT, let us know when you get robbed or raped or assaulted, then tell us how wonderful the CSPD is. We had a guy in our neighborhood robbing houses, we had to get together as a group and catch the jerk ourselves because CSPD wouldn't do ANYTHING about it. When we finally caught him, it took the CSPD 2 hours and 45 minutes to send an officer to arrest the scum bag. This town is getting seriously ridiculous. I love living here, was born and raised here, but the cspd just stinks. And for all you people that want to tell me that it's because the cops are just too busy, let me tell you about how while waiting almost 3 hours for a cop to arrest Mr.Thief we watched 3 cop cars sit for nearly an hour side by side at the store on the corner. They cry about funds, but sit for an hour, doing nothing.RIDICULOUS.

    Sorry, DOTT, but to say that if the crime was not related to a fallen soldier it wouldn't have made the second page is exactly why I do not support paying higher taxes for police services. Unfortunately, we now have come to pre-qualify crimes. We live in a society in which crimes like this barely bother anyone. Police hope to not get caught up in minor theft activities like this one so that they can be ready if needed for a crime of more magnitude. Yet, to the victims a crime is still a crime, and this one is no exception.

    Hay you say bite your tongue about the police department, well why dont you bite your tongue about the fallen soldier. It needed to make the papers, seriously dog tags are something that our loved ones hold onto forever in loving memory of their fallen soldier. To us as miilitary life we take pride in what we do every day and our families do. When we lose a fallen soldier it hits home every where. Seriously if it was not for the news cast they probably would have never found the thieves that stoop low enough to even steal dog tags!

    Bite your tongue, the CSPD are great as is the Sheriff's office. The CSPD done;t have control over what is on the news and how it is played, only the news crew have that power. Plus if this wasn't from a fallin solider. The news would have made it 2nd page news.

    I'm glad that these idiots have been arrested, but it's sad that had this case not received the press it did, the crappy CSPD would have treated it like any other case, and it never would have been solved.
