Rep. Boebert's teen son arrested, faces 22 misdemeanor and felony theft charges

Rep. Lauren Boebert  (R-CO) is no stranger to making headlines, but the latest ones are definitely not what she wanted this year.

According to The Denver Post, her eldest son, Tyler Jay Boebert, 18, has been arrested and charged with 22 felony and misdemeanor crimes related to a series of car break-ins and credit card theft.

Her son appeared before a judge virtually in Garfield County Court on Wednesday, a day after his arrest.

Notably, her son is also a father.

Statement released

Rep. Boebert released a statement in the wake of her son's arrest, and seemed to shift the blame for his actions -- to some degree -- on being the son of a U.S. lawmaker.

"I love my son Tyler, who has been through some very difficult, public challenges for a young man and the subject of attention that he didn’t ask for," the Colorado Republican said in the statement.

She added, "It breaks my heart to see my child struggling and in this situation, especially when he has been provided multiple opportunities to get his life on track. I will never give up on him and I will continue to be there for him."

Even worse, Boebert's son reportedly stole money and credit cards out of a vehicle belonging to a woman who needed the money as part of her savings to have brain surgery, as she reportedly has a brain tumor, the New York Post reported.

"[The woman] informed [police that] she has a brain tumor and now she does not have the money to get her surgery," the report said.

How was he caught?

The teen Boebert was ultimately arrested after a police officer investigating the string of car break-ins spotted him on surveillance footage wearing a sweatshirt from his mother's since-closed bar, Shooters Bar and Grill.

The Denver Post noted:

In the surveillance video, Tyler Boebert was wearing a Shooters Bar and Grill hoodie while he and a group of three juveniles used a stolen credit card to buy food from Love’s in the early hours of Feb. 20, including tacos and “rollerbites,” according to the affidavit.

Boebert and his accomplices reportedly pilfered credit cards, debit cards, cash and other valuables, and eventually made several charges on the cards.

He was released on a personal recognizance bond set at $1,250.
