PINE, Colo. — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help finding a 15-year-old boy who’s accused of breaking into a relative’s home and stealing guns and ammunition.

Kaiden Martin disabled the security system of a relative’s home on South Cedar Circle in Pine between 5 and 7 p.m. Wednesday and then broke into a secured gun safe, deputies said.

Authorities said Martin took multiple guns, a suppressor and ammunition from the home.

Martin was in the custody of Mount View Youth Services Center for a similar incident until May 21, when he was released with an ankle monitor after stealing a handgun, deputies said. The ankle monitor does not have GPS tracking but authorities were notified that Martin left a specified perimeter at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday.

A warrant has been issued for Martin’s arrest on violations of pre-trial and bond conditions.

Martin is described as a white male, 6 feet tall and weighing 130 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call 911 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867).
