Wrong man booked into jail
A 62-year-old Craig man was wrongfully booked into the Moffat County Jail on Monday, authorities said.
Jack Paulson turned himself in to the jail after he heard a warrant was out for his arrest. The warrant originated from the Rio Blanco County Sheriff’s Office, which reported it made a clerical error by mistakenly using Paulson’s name on a citation.
The Moffat County Sheriff’s Office has begun the process of clearing Paulson’s record of the wrongful arrest, clerks said Monday afternoon.
A veteran in Moffat County is facing a handful of felony charges after police say he broke into a family member’s gun safe while on drugs when they confronted him for pawning an expensive tool.
