Highlands Ranch man suspected of aggravated robbery of taxi driver


A 20-year-old Highlands Ranch man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated robbery of a taxi driver who had driven him home, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

On March 11, Maurice Nicholas Curry was taken to the Douglas County jail and booked on eight charges — three of which are felonies, according to a news release from the sheriff's office. He was being held on a $50,000 bond.

At about 11 a.m. that day, dispatch received a call reporting that a taxi driver had been robbed, possibly at gunpoint, according to the release. The passenger allegedly took money from the driver and did not pay for the ride.

Deputies responded to the area of Creek Court in Highlands Ranch and, with the victim's assistance with a description of the suspect and a possible first name, were able to set up a perimeter in the area. A K9 unit was called in to assist in locating the suspect, according to the sheriff's office.

Deputies identified Curry and found an address. Curry initially refused to come outside of his home to talk to deputies and fled to a nearby field, according to the news release. Deputies located Curry and took him into custody a short time later.

Curry is being held on charges of first-degree kidnapping, aggravated robbery, menacing, false imprisonment and resisting arrest, among other charges. The case remained under investigation.
