Man using false identity arrested in Colorado Springs

MGN

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - A man using a false identity was arrested in Colorado Springs Wednesday.

Police said they were called to an area of North Carefree Circle near Carver Park around 9 Wednesday morning.

While they were there, police arrested one person and when they got him back to the Stetson Hills substation found the identity he gave them was that of a dead person.

After using a finger print scanner, officers found the man's real name was Tracy Hoggatt and he had been wanted in Washington state since 2019.

Police said Hoggatt committed three felonies in Washington and was sentenced to life in prison. He was later released on conditions in July 2018, but violated those conditions and left the area.

He assumed the identity of the dead person and was able to avoid being arrested by several law enforcement agencies.

  1. Sentenced to life in prison in 2018 but was released on conditions. What could possibly be the reason you let a person doing life out of prison a year later?

    1. I found the problem… look at the last couple of words…

      “Jay Robert Inslee (/ˈɪnzliː/; born February 9, 1951) is an American politician who has served as the 23rd governor of Washington since 2013. A member of the Democratic Party…”

      1. You’re an idiot, Mikey. Just like most of your kind. Nowhere does it say he was convicted in 2018. That js when he violated the terms of his release. But, this is how you judgmental Republicans spread your misinformation – or should I say your outright lies. Learn to read or tell the truth before you jump to ASSumptions!!

    2. He violated the conditions of his release in 2018. He wasn’t convicted in 2018. It doesn’t say when he was convicted but I get the impression it could easily have been in the 70s and he was released 40 years later.

  2. More trash moving here from failed west coast cities and states, probably bringing their failed Dem policies with them.

    .
    Another repeat offender released by our great justice system. Life in prison should mean exactly that.

  4. No reality, I am a lifelong resident of Colorado, witnessing the state slowly being ruined, in my opinion by people moving here, who want to do a “redo” withe the same policies that ruined their state, prompting them to leave the mess created there. And yes I am employed, am educated. How about you?

    1. Colorado Springs native, I feel the Springs is the last conservative bastion in the state. I hope I’m right….
      Things that ARE ruining the Springs:
      1. Olympic Committee: no, you dont own this city, your new museum is a *ucking eyesore and was only a cash grab for them, anyone Ive dealt with with them O.C. are over privileged a$$holes.
      2. Blue state transplants: ‘I’ll sell my $3 million house in Cali and buy a $1 million house in Colorado AND vote the way I came from’. Get rid of your stupid BLM, gay pride, SJW bullcrap flag out of your yard, it makes you look like an idiot.
      3. i’m sure I have more but im ending my rant now 🙂

  5. How do they known they got the right guy?
    ‘Fingerprints’
    Well, that ruins the joke.
