Edward Roy Barron, DOB: 3-9-86, appeared in Jefferson County Court on February 12 where he was sentenced to 85 years in prison for an armed, drug-fueled crime spree in Jefferson County in 2017. A jury found him guilty of all 18 felony counts on January 12, 2019. Mr. Barron had two outstanding felony warrants when he was arrested.

Mr. Barron’s crime spree began with an armed carjacking of a red Nissan near the intersection of Kipling and Morrison at 5:00 a.m. on December 9, 2017. Over the next six hours he robbed a pharmacy located at Kipling and Bowles. Holding the pharmacist at gunpoint he got away with Dilaudid and Fentanyl. He then proceeded to a bank at Kipling and W. Belleview where he robbed tellers, again at gunpoint, netting $1,800. Shortly afterwards, he was observed in a nearby neighborhood. One neighbor thought he looked suspicious and called police. Barron went into a home in this neighborhood and held the male and female residents at gunpoint. He told them he had to “lay low” for a while, as “the heat was after him.” After the female resident managed to escape the home, Barron left the house and attempted to flee the area. He was met by numerous law enforcement officers outside the house and a foot chase began. He was caught and arrested.

“This was a complex investigation involving the Lakewood Police, Jefferson County Sheriff, FBI, and the Division of Parks and Wildlife. There were four crime scenes, and hundreds of pieces of evidence,” said DA Pete Weir. “Mr. Barron terrorized many people that day and his sentencing range was aggravated.”
