Douglas County Sheriff’s Office detectives began investigating and reportedly “saw a similar device, as described by the victim, in the same area, on the steps leading to the front door.”
On March 15, detectives obtained a warrant to search the home and found a similar device on the stairs in the back of the house. Deputies arrested Bryan Hill and Tracy Remington on charges of second-degree assault, felony menacing, and prohibited use of a weapon following the search and a “short standoff.”
Their bonds were set at $25,000 each.
According to KDVR-TV, the victim is a paint salesman who walks door-to-door. The second booby trap in the back of the house reportedly had a “chemical agent” wired to spray at the person who tripped it.
