Police lights

In October of 2017, Brighton Police Detective Arehart began investigating a check fraud that occurred at a bank in Brighton. Several months later, Commerce City Detective Brunner began investigating a similar case that occurred at a check cashing business in Commerce City. The two detectives combined their investigations and uncovered an organized fraud ring consisting of five suspects. The investigation was aided by Special Agent Higgs of the Colorado Department of Revenue's Taxation Division.

After almost three years of investigation, the case was presented to the Adams County District Attorney’s Office and the five suspects were charged with a variety of crimes. The charges, most of which are felonies, include: Violation of Colorado Organized Crime Control Act (COCCA), Money Laundering, Fraud by Check, Theft, Filing a False Tax Return, Tax Evasion, and Failure to File a Return or Pay Tax.

The District Attorney’s Office issued arrest warrants for the following individuals: 55-year-old Rosa Linda Perez Delozano, 35-year-old Noe Lozano Perez, 58-year-old Noe Lozano Loya, 30-year-old Linda Lozano Perez, and 38-year-old Hector Pinela. Rosa Linda Perez Delozano is the only individual who has been arrested on their active warrant. The four other remain at large. If you have information on their whereabouts, please contact the Brighton Police Department’s Tip Line at (303) 655-8740. You can also leave a tip by calling Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867), reference Brighton Police case 17-5598.

These charges are merely an accusation, and the defendants are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty.
