    Inmate captured


    Jefferson County, CO. – On March 27, 2014, Damon Elliot Slayton, (dob 010173), was captured in the area of Broadway and Larimer St. in Denver. He was arrested without incident by a Jeffco Sheriff’s Office investigator assigned to the F.B.I. Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force (RMSSTF). Slayton was released from jail in error by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office on March 25, 2014.

    The mistake that allowed Slayton to be released has been investigated and determined to be human error. Steps have been taken to improve the “checks and balances” in place to verify inmate releases.

    The efforts of all law enforcement, along with citizen tips, contributed to Slayton’s capture.
