The son of Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert has been arrested and charged for an alleged series of thefts Tuesday, the Rifle Police Department announced in a Facebook post.

Tyler Boebert, 18, is currently in custody and facing a series of allegations, the Rifle Police Department said in a Facebook post. He was arrested Feb. 27, 2024, around 2:30 p.m., in connection with a spree of vehicle trespasses and thefts of property.

The charges levied against Boebert comprise four felony counts related to the criminal possession of identification documents involving multiple victims, a single “felony count of Conspiracy to Commit a Felony” and more than “15 [counts of] additional misdemeanor and petty offenses,” according to the Rifle Police Department.

“This is an ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time,” the police department said in the statement. “All suspects are considered innocent until adjudicated guilty in a court of law.”

Additionally, Tyler faces charges of having a “financial device” illegally, misdemeanor charges related to identity theft, “first-degree criminal trespass” charges, charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and charges of petty theft involving amounts less than $300, according to Garfield County Jail’s records.

Tyler’s legal troubles come months after Lauren announced her intention to vie for a seat in Colorado’s 4th Congressional district in the 2024 elections. The backdrop to this latest episode includes a history of familial discord, including Boebert’s highly publicized split from her ex-husband, Jayson Boebert, with whom she shares four sons.

Earlier this month, Lauren secured a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband. This move followed allegations of Jayson threatening both her safety and his, spanning over the past 14 months, according to a filing by the congresswoman in Garfield County court, The Denver Post reported. The congresswoman reportedly also accused Jayson of unlawfully entering her Colorado residence, according to the filing.
