LONGMONT, Colo. (KDVR) — Longmont police arrested a man who is possibly connected to the robbery and death of a 71-year-old man earlier this month.
About 1:10 a.m. Friday, police arrested 36-year-old Edward Herbert Hoid while investigating a suspicious incident at 1250 S. Hover St. in Longmont.
According to documents from the Longmont Police Department, officers were in the area after a number of businesses and vehicles had been burglarized.
The documents show Hoid is charged with violating parole, menacing, criminal mischief and first-degree aggravated motor vehicle theft.
About 5 p.m. on Nov. 5, Randall Schubert, 71, was found badly injured on the Longmont Greenway near the Longmont Recreation Center. He was hospitalized with serious injuries and died a few days later.
Investigators say the husband, father and grandfather had been robbed of his phone, wallet, credit cards and bike.
Surveillance photos show a man using Schubert’s credit card.
On Saturday, LPD identified Hoid as the man in the photos.
Hoid has not been charged in Schubert’s death.
A GoFundMe has been created to support Schubert’s wife, Jackie.
