Titus Emilyon Sentenced for String of Burglaries in Jefferson County

GOLDEN, Colo. (Jan. 17, 2024) – Titus Emilyon was sentenced to 12 years in prison yesterday for the string of burglaries he committed in Jefferson County in the fall of 2022. On Oct. 23, 2023, Emilyon pleaded guilty to three counts of Second Degree Burglary, naming 22 small businesses as victims. Part of Emilyon’s plea agreement was to pay restitution to business owners.  

Between Oct. 31, 2022, and Dec. 2, 2022. Emilyon mainly targeted small businesses and would gain entry by breaking the front doors with a rock and then stealing cash. While he usually only left with small sums of money, the damage he caused for business owners was significant. The total estimated loss reported to date is more than $27,000.


  • On Oct. 31, 2022, Emilyon burglarized Evergreen Cleaners and Park Side Café, causing damage to the front door and stealing cash.
  • On Nov. 2, 2022, Emilyon burglarized Roberts Italian Restaurant and several businesses in the Upper Bear Creek Road Shopping Center, including Everbean Coffee, Coal Mine Dragon, and Bistro Del Lago, causing damage and stealing cash.
  • Emilyon burglarized three different establishments between Nov. 7 and Nov. 8, 2022: Bear Cub Coffee and Pub, Mac Nation, and Coal Creek Canyon Coffee. In all three cases, he broke a window or glass door to gain entry and stole cash.
  • Emilyon committed burglaries on Nov. 13, 2022, at Kwik Mart and Canyon Liquors, stealing cash drawers and causing damages.
  • On Nov. 25, 2022, Emilyon committed burglaries at Guido’s Pizza, Genessee Pub and BBQ, and Buffalo Moon. The front doors were broken, cash was missing, and the damage to Genessee Pub’s cash register system alone was approximately $5,000.
  • On Nov. 28, 2022, Emilyon again burglarized several businesses near each other. Law enforcement found broken doors at Q’s Pub, Garlic Knot, Alterations Plus, Las Dalias Restaurant, and Salon Navaeh. Items were stolen from Salon Navaeh and cash from Las Dalias Restaurant. Surveillance video showed the suspect entering Garlic Knot but leaving empty-handed, and nothing was stolen from Alterations Plus. However, the damage to each door was valued at approximately $1,200.
  • On Dec. 2, 2022, Black Bird Café, Kittredge General Store, and SaBella Pizza Restaurant were burglarized. At that time, law enforcement was searching for a 2008 silver Ford Escape, and one was discovered near the burglary. Once contacted, officers observed the driver, Emilyon, had broken glass in his hair and eyebrows. Cash was later found in the glove box, a cash box underneath the passenger seat, and a pair of gloves underneath the driver’s seat.


Emilyon, who has a long record of burglary convictions, was on parole for his ninth burglary at the time of committing these burglaries. As of yesterday’s sentencing, Emilyon had recently been convicted of burglary in Boulder County and also has pending cases for burglaries in Clear Creek, Adams, and Douglas Counties.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office investigators later determined that Emilyon gambled at Black Hawk casinos between Sep. 23 and Dec. 2, 2022, and had lost $9,800.

As a result of the plea agreement, Emilyon faced a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, which prosecutors advocated for. “Sadly, most businesses targeted by Emilyon were small businesses, and as a result, the damages were felt more intensely than a larger business would have, including dealing with the glass shortages in repairing the windows and doors,” said Deputy District Attorney Amanda Hensen. “Emilyon’s crime spree caused financial loss and destroyed the sense of safety for the affected businesses, their employees, and customers.”

Emilyon was sentenced to 12 years DOC plus three years parole, with 411 days of Pre-Sentence Confinement Credit (PSCC). A restitution hearing will be held to determine the restitution amounts owed to the various victims.
