— A 44-year-old man was arrested after police said he broke into Creekside Cafe & Grill in Steamboat Springs early Wednesday morning.

An employee called police at about 4:30 a.m. after finding Jon Adam Yaroscak inside the restaurant and then chasing him out, according to an arrest affidavit filed in Routt County Court.

Outside, police found Yaroscak, who had a powdery residue around his mouth and tongue. Police knew of Yaroscak, who they think had been staying at a nearby motel recently.

Yaroscak told police he was doing construction at the business, though he told police he thought he was working at a hotel at the base of Steamboat Ski Area.

Yaroscak consented to a search, and police found a pen tube with residue that preliminarily tested positive for cocaine, the affidavit states.

Yaroscak also had a knife that police think Yaroscak used to try and pry open a cash drawer.

Yaroscak was arrested on suspicion of felony second-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, attempted third-degree burglary, attempted theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Yaroscak was unable to appear in court Wednesday, and his bond was not set.
