Aspen, CO – December 31, 2020 – The Aspen Police Department and Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office have cleared a man depicted in a photograph released yesterday.

On Dec. 30 a press release and photo were issued regarding a person of interest who had been seen in a downtown Aspen alley, and a caller to the police department felt the man in the photo was suspicious.

In the evening of Dec. 30, that man came forward, identifying themselves as being in the photo, and explaining their actions. The investigations team believes now that this man was not involved in anything improper.

We are grateful for his help in clearing up this matter, and to the community for keeping an eye out for all of our safety.

As this demonstrates, we do investigate all tips and leads that come to us. We would like to reassure the community that the Sheriff’s Office and Police Department continue to work on this investigation, along with federal agencies. We will continue to update you as we have new information.

Anyone who may have information that could help related to the ongoing investigation, please call 970-920-5400. We do accept anonymous information.

Let’s all be good neighbors and watch out for each other.
