2-year-old rescued after standoff at unlicensed day care in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A 2-year-old girl was rescued after a standoff between police and two people inside an unlicensed day care in Colorado Springs on Friday night.

The Colorado Springs Police Department said it responded to the 2000 block of Warwick Lane about 7:30 p.m. Friday after a parent became concerned when they were not able to reach their baby sitter at Tiny Toes day care.

Officers discovered the woman running the day care was using a fake name of Sarah Richmond,

When officers discovered her real identity, they found out she had outstanding felony and misdemeanor warrants.

The woman, later identified as Anna Brimm, finally responded to the parents and confirmed their child was still inside the home.

After an hour of negotiations, a male suspect, Dirk Kilgore, brought the 2-year-old outside and returned her to her parents.

The child was unharmed, but was shaking and crying, according to police.

Kilgore was taken into custody and Brimm surrendered to police 20 minutes later.

After obtaining a search warrant, police discovered 12.6 grams of methamphetamine, 7.3 grams of brown heroin, 28.2 grams of black tar heroin, 1.3 grams of cocaine and 550 prescription pills.

The drugs are valued at more than $35,000. Police also found more than $2,100 in cash and a Sig Sauer P250 40 Cal handgun.

Brimm faces second-degree kidnapping and child abuse charges, along with several other charges related to drugs.

Kilgore was arrested on charges of attempting to influence a public servant.

Anyone who had a child that attended the day care is asked to call police at 719-444-7000.
