DENVER (AP) – Prosecutors have charged a Colorado Uber driver accused of trying to break into the home of a woman he drove to the airport.
The Denver District Attorney’s Office announced Monday that 51-year-old Gerald Montgomery has been charged with attempted second-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools and attempted first-degree criminal trespass. He has posted $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court April 14.
Police say Montgomery dropped off the passenger at the airport March 26, returned to her home and then tried to break in through the back door. An arrest affidavit says he ran when the woman’s roommate spotted him, leaving lock-picking tools behind.
The roommates say they realized the attempted burglar was the Uber driver after the woman sent her roommate a picture of him.
