COLORADO -- The San Miguel County Sheriff's Office at Telluride, Colo., is trying to find a "person of interest" wanted for an armed robbery incident there last September.

Ulises Omar Felix and two other accomplices reportedly have connections in Cottonwood, according to Norman Squier, an investigator on the case. A reward is offered for information leading to capture.

On Sept. 6, two masked men armed with AK-47 style rifles and dressed in camouflage clothing, surprised two men who live on a small parcel of land in a remote area west of Norwood, Colo. The victims' hands and feet were bound with duct-tape and they were thrown into small shed on the property, while the suspects ransacked their belongings. 

A woman who came to visit was also captured and bound along with the men.

According to Squier, the two men along with two women suspects took two dozen nearly mature marijuana plants, legally grown under Colorado's medical marijuana law. They also reportedly stole $1,000 in cash, a revolver and a gas-powered generator.

The alleged robbers fled after when they discovered that one of the men had escaped from his bindings and run for help.

The two masked men and women accomplices were identified. They include Ulises Omar Felix, 33, of Colorado, and Gregory Richard Broome, 40, of Clovis, N.M. Both men are charged with the actual assault, imprisonment and theft. The two women accomplices are Ashley Cynthia Montalvo, 27, and Brisa Marie Felix-Gonzalez, 31, both of Colorado.  Montalvo is Felix's wife and the mother of his two children. Felix-Gonzalez is Felix's sister.

All but Ulises Omar Felix were located and apprehended.

The San Miguel Sheriff's Office is offering a reward of $1,000.00 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of U. Omar Felix.

Anyone with information should contact the San Miguel Co.Sheriff's Office at (970) 728-1911.
