(Douglas County, Colo.) Law enforcement agencies in the Denver metro area, including the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, are seeking help identifying the occupants of a blue Jeep Grand Cherokee associated with several violent crimes and thefts.

In a news release, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said criminals used an older model, dark-blue Jeep Grand Cherokee with a missing front bumper, no license plates, dark tinted windows and a white sticker on the upper right corner of the back window to commit several crimes during the past month.

According to the agency, the individuals involved have allegedly broken car windows and stolen valuables inside, broken the front glass door of a local business and stolen items inside the store, as well as an incident where a person was shot in the arm with a BB gun pellet outside a local store. These crimes are in addition to vehicle trespasses, catalytic converter thefts and an aggravated assault.

“Recent cases in January involve catalytic converter thefts and an eluding incident in Highlands Ranch,” the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The agency’s release reported possibly four suspects involved: a White or Hispanic male with an average build and black chin hair; a White or Hispanic female with an average build, dark hair, and glasses; a heavy-set Hispanic male in his 30s or 40s; and a heavy-set Hispanic female in her 30s and 40s.

Anyone who sees the vehicle can call the Sheriff’s Office’s non-emergency number, 303-660-7500. To provide additional information about this vehicle, suspects or crimes, call the Major Crimes tip line at 303-660-7579.
