NARRATIVE: DOUGLAS COUNTY, CO – Two residents of Highlands Ranch were arrested after the device they set outside their front door, injured a person.
On March 10, 2023, deputies responded to a citizen call referencing someone being injured by a possible “booby trap.” Deputies met with the victim, who stated that on March 9, 2023, at around 2:00 pm, he was conducting business on Ashburn Ct, in Highlands Ranch, CO. The victim said that as he went to the front door of one of the houses, he heard and felt a loud “boom.” When he looked down, he saw that a wire was caught around his lower leg. The victim also described pain in his ear, and his vision was affected. He told the deputy that he believed the wire was suspended over one of the steps leading up to the front door. He was then confronted by a white male, who he thought was the homeowner.
The victim then left the area, with the help of a co-worker, and went to the hospital.
A few days later, while detectives were investigating the incident, they saw a similar device, as described by the victim, in the same area, on the steps leading to the front door.
On March 15, 2023, a search warrant was executed on the house on Ashburn Ct. They noticed the device was still in the area of the steps leading to the front door, and another similar device was located on the steps at the back of the house. As a result of the search warrant, and a short stand-off by a female inside, two individuals were taken into custody.

Tracy Remington, DOB 11/12/1969, booked in on several charges, including 2nd-degree assault (F4), felony menacing (F5), and prohibited use of a weapon (M1)-bond is currently set at $25,000.
This is still an open and active investigation.
