McCool man held at York County Jail pending extradition to Colorado for theft charge

YORK – Tyler Cox, 30, of McCool Junction, was taken into custody this week by the York County Sheriff’s Department on an arrest warrant out of Weld County, Colorado.

He was arrested on a complaint here of being a fugitive from justice, regarding a charge there of felony theft with a value between $100,000 and $1 million.

The warrant commanded York County to arrest him and for him “to be taken to the nearest available county court, then extradited,” according to court documents.

Cox’s bond in Colorado is a straight $100,000 cash or surety, according to documents filed with the York County Court.

The situation in York County strictly involves being a fugitive from justice and extradition issues.

On Wednesday, July 19, Cox signed a waiver of extradition with the York County Court, which says he “agrees and consents to the return to the State of Colorado as a prisoner to answer to the criminal charge of theft, $100,000-$1 million pending against me.”

He was listed as being a fugitive from justice as of July 17, according to York County Court documents.

Details of the Colorado case were not yet publicly available.
