Man arrested in scam case

A fifth person has been arrested in connection with what police are calling the “Jamaican lottery scam” investigation, which already has seen four other Routt County residents federally indicted and arraigned.

Dean Leslie Mo­­watt, 31, was booked into the Routt County Jail on Sunday and is suspected of theft, identity theft, criminal possession of a financial device, conspiracy, gathering information by deception and violation of the Colorado Organized Crime Act. Mowatt is suspected of stealing credit card information from visiting guests at The Rockies Condominiums in Steamboat, where he was a front desk clerk last winter.
