Snowmass Village police arrested a 24-year-old man early Thursday morning and charged him with stealing jewelry from his girlfriend’s mother, according to court documents.

Chase Compton was charged with felony theft, and a Pitkin County District Court judge later ordered him held in lieu of a $5,000 bond.

Officers were called to a home on North Ridge Lane in Snowmass Village about 4:30 a.m. after a 51-year-old resident of the home reported catching Compton rifling through her jewelry box in a bathroom, according to an affidavit.

The woman’s husband confronted Compton and after a “heated discussion,” Compton fled the home on foot, the affidavit states.

An officer soon located Compton — a white man with dreadlocks — walking down Faraway Road. Compton claimed he’d been searching for Tums antacid in the bathroom at the North Ridge Lane residence, according to the affidavit.
