Hearing Set For Trucker Accused Of Crime Spree
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – A preliminary hearing has been scheduled in March for a Phoenix truck driver accused of a crime spree in northern Colorado.
Scott Walker, 47, appeared by video for a court hearing Thursday in Greeley. The Tribune reports that a preliminary hearing was set for March 2 after a request by Walker’s attorney, Seth Hardy of Denver.
Walker is accused of several crimes, including a carjacking, shooting at a police officer and burglary. He remains in jail on $2 million bond.
Walker was arrested Dec. 28 at a Greeley-area home where authorities say he smashed through a gate with a stolen cable TV truck and burst into the house. Police say Walker abandoned his semitrailer in Greeley and stole the truck at gunpoint.
