Man arrested in Colorado post office incident

MOFFAT — The Moffat post office was under lockdown June 24 following an incident with a customer who came in to file an application for a post office box and threatened postal workers when they had trouble verifying his physical address.

According to an incident report from the Saguache Sheriff’s Office, Travis Tomlinson, 27, of Moffat became angry when postal workers said they would call the Sheriff’s Office. He responded by telling them that before law enforcement arrived “something was going to happen.” Tomlinson then became aggressive and struck the plexiglass window; causing minor injuries to a postal employee.

Undersheriff Jim McCloskey responded to the call and was later able to locate Tomlinson at the address given for the application for the post office box. McCloskey read Tomlinson his Miranda rights and asked Tomlinson if he was at the Moffat post office, which he confirmed. He told McCloskey he apologized for his behavior there and so there was nothing to talk about.
