Police made a third arrest in connection with a violent armed robbery in Boulder County.

A man was pistol whipped inside of his home on Sunshine Canyon last month. Police say the suspects demanded marijuana.

Investigators say Donna Gritzo, 30, knew about the attack before it happened but didn't say anything. She was a former employee of the victim, who told police she is friends with the men who broke into his home.

Gritzo has been arrested for acting as a co-conspirator to commit kidnapping, burglary, aggravated robbery, assault and theft. Bail was set at $250,000.

Garrett Mendes was already taken into custody.

A third suspect, Jason Mesaros, was shot and killed by police hours after the home invasion on Nov. 10. He led a police chase that ended in Brighton that night.
