Two Men Charged with Stealing from Denver University Students (Baldwin, Waldron)

DENVER—The Denver District Attorney’s Office today announced Mathew G. Baldwin (age 20) and Christopher J. Waldron (age 18) are each charged with eight counts of second degree burglary (F3) for stealing from the dorm rooms of University of Denver students.

Both men were students at the time of the burglaries which allegedly began on January 24, 2019, and continued through January 28, 2019. Campus security apprehended Baldwin and Waldron in a restricted storage room that smelled strongly of marijuana. Baldwin and Waldron resisted arrest and were aggressive towards security causing additional officers to assist in their apprehension.

In the storage room, officers found numerous items for which they had previously taken stolen item reports from eight different student victims. Those items ranged from a laptop computer and Versace cologne to rolling papers and a Canadian Goose jacket and totaled $5,220 in value.

Mr. Baldwin’s second advisement is scheduled for March 12, 2019, at 8:00 am in courtroom 2300. Because charges were filed this morning against Mr. Waldron, scheduling information regarding his court appearances is not yet available.


The filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual(s) committed a crime(s) under Colorado laws.  A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.  See Colo. RPC 3.6
