Bond Reduction Denied For Moffat County Serial Burglar
By Kristin Forbis, Nov 23, 2021
A judge has denied a bond reduction for an alleged serial burglar in Moffat County. 24-year-old Skyler Kemp was arrested on October 25th and has been charged with Class 3 Felony Burglary of a Dwelling, among other charges. That charge was related to the break-in and burglary of a local priest. A communion kit, silver cross necklace, and sacramental bag, all valued at around $1,000 dollars, were stolen, as well as a $4,000 dollar mountain bike. Many other stolen items from separate thefts, including car thefts, were found at Kemp’s home. Kemp made his first court appearance on November 18th and, while the defense argued that Kemp deserved a reduction in bond, the judge denied the request due to the pattern of criminal behavior. In addition to the Moffat County charges, Kemp is also facing charges in Rio Blanco and Garfield Counties.
