Man faces charges instolen ski pass incident
Steamboat Springs police have identified the man who reportedly stole a one-day ski pass from a 12-year-old girl Sunday.
Superior resident Brandon Lee Frohbieter, 18, is in custody on charges of felony theft, police Officer Gerard Geis said Tuesday.
Geis said Frohbieter approached the girl and her younger sister near the ticket window at Steamboat Ski Area and asked the girl if he could have her ski pass.
When the girl said no, Geis said, Frohbieter pulled a pair of scissors out of his pocket and cut the pass off the girl's jacket.
Geis and Ski Corps security officers questioned Frohbieter later in the day for trying to sell a different ski pass. During that questioning, Geis said, the girl approached with her parents and identified Frohbieter as the man who stole her pass.
Frohbieter is being held on $5,000 bail.
