Montrose Police Investigating Kidnapping Case
Montrose, CO — The Montrose Police Department is investigating a kidnapping case that was reported in the early evening hours of Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
Officers and detectives responded to a residence in the 100 Block of South San Juan Avenue and spoke with witnesses to the incident, who reported that a male party arrived, demanding to speak with an adult female inside the home. From information gathered during the early portion of the investigation, it was discovered that the male and female were known to each other. After an interaction with the occupants of the home, the male was able to make entry inside and forcefully remove the adult female victim from within, and pulled her toward a vehicle before leaving the area.
During the course of the subsequent investigation, the suspect in the incident was identified as 27-year-old Tre Glenn Richardson. Richardson is a white male who is 6’ 04” in height and weighs approximately 220 pounds. He has multiple distinctive tattoos on his neck and face and may have ties to the Grand Junction and/or Mesa County area. The vehicle Richardson was driving at the time of these offenses is a 2003 dark blue Ford Windstar minivan with silver trim on its lower quarter panels. The last known license plate on the vehicle was CGX453.
A warrant for Richardson’s arrest has been issued for offenses related to this case, including burglary, kidnapping, first-degree criminal trespass, assault, criminal mischief, child abuse, and domestic violence. Though no information from this investigation suggests Richardson was armed with any weapons, he has recent involvement in a case in another jurisdiction where a knife was used in the commission of a crime.
Presently, we have not been able to contact either the adult female victim or Richardson. The Montrose Police Department is requesting that anyone who has information about Richardson’s whereabouts or associations, to please contact the Montrose Police Department at (970) 249-9110.
Immediately call 9-1-1 if you see Richardson himself or the described vehicle. Do not attempt to approach him.
