Woman Arrested for Crime Spree

A woman facing charges for nearly 30 crimes in southern Colorado is back behind bars, arrested this week on suspicion of being behind yet another crime-spree.

According to police, Regina Colangelo, 32, was arrested October 11.

Court papers obtained by 11 News show she was also arrested at the end of July. At that time she was caught the same day after she allegedly broke into a house, and lied to an officer about her identity.

Crimes linked to Colangelo range from burglary to identity theft.

"My cell phone, my iPhone touch, everything was taken," said Ashley Cook Wednesday.

In April, Ashley was taking pictures in Red Rock Canyon. When she got back to her car, her purse was gone, along with valuable personal information.

"My bank account, my password to my bank account. It was absolutely terrible thinking someone could rip my life apart,” she said. “And I had just turned 18."

Between the months of April and July, court papers indicate homes in east-side neighborhoods were broken into, as well as a number of cars. Some of the property taken was reportedly sold, and police say some was found in Colangelo's possession.

Similar discoveries were recently made, and again linked to Colangelo, who was out on bond less than a week ago.

"Utter shock," Ashley said about discovering her purse had been stolen. She now triple checks that her doors are locked after learning a tough life lesson.

“I don't trust anything,” she said. “I don’t trust anyone."

Police have not provided a photograph of Colangelo, telling 11 News they believe they'll find more victims, and want to hear from anyone who may have more information about their investigation.

Records at the El Paso Criminal Justice Center indicate Regina Colangelo is next due in court on October 21.

Anyone with further information can reach police at 444-7000.

    Only God can judge me...Tupac. It sure is easy to kick someone when they're down. Drugs make people do crazy things.I know Ms. Colangelo will get the help she needs...but I hope that some of the people on tbis board who have never done anything negative in thier lives get some type of help as well. Hate does more damage to the hater than the hated.The Colangeo family is a strong, caring, and resilient clan. Gina will have all the support she needs! Thank you and goodnight.
