We continue to look for the other individuals previously released.

On July 12th, 2019, there was a protest at the ICE/GEO Facility regarding the Lights For Liberty.

During this protest, a group of individuals removed three flags being flown in front of the facility, including the U.S. Flag. The three flags were replaced with the Mexican national flag, a desecrated upside down with some red spray paint written on it thin blue line flag, and a flag that read “F##k the Cops”. This same group attempted to burn the U.S. flag that had been removed from the flag pole.

We have obtained photographs of these individuals and are asking for the public's assistance in identifying these persons of interest. 

Anyone with information is asked to either email [email protected] or you can remain anonymous and call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). By calling Crime Stoppers, you may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000. The Aurora Reward Fund is also matching this $2,000 reward, for a total reward of up to $4,000 with information about these individuals.
