An acquaintance of a woman reported missing and later found dead in Colorado was arrested on Dec. 24 in Alvarado.
Alvarado police arrested Andrew Condon, 25, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, following a traffic stop on Interstate 35-W.
Condon was allegedly driving 94 mph in a 70 mph zone, police said.
Police smelled marijuana in Condon’s vehicle, according to reports. They confiscated marijuana and a fake ID. Additional investigation revealed that Condon was wanted out of Aurora, Colorado on a felony assault warrant and a felony escape warrant, Alvarado Police Chief Brad Anderson said.
Police charged him with fraudulent use/possession of identification, failure to identify fugitive and marijuana possession. Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Ronny McBroom set Condon’s bond at $7,500.
Family members of LeBrea Jackson, 23, of Colorado, reported her missing in late December. Jackson was last seen Dec. 23 in Aurora.
Aurora police on Tuesday confirmed that the remains of a person found in Aguilar, Colorado, are those of Jackson and that the case is now a homicide investigation.
Jackson’s family told Aurora police that she called and said she was stopping to pick her boyfriend up before going to a Christmas event, according Fox 31 News in Denver. Family members told police that neither Jackson nor the boyfriend ever arrived.
Anderson said Colorado police have been in contact him. Anderson added that the Alvarado Police Department is focused on Condon’s local charges and the Aurora Police Department will deal with his Colorado warrants.
Officials with the Aurora Police Department said Jackson’s death remains under investigation. They declined to comment on Condon’s relationship to Jackson or whether he is believed to be connected to her murder.
