Carjacker convicted after multi-county crime spree

Posted

An Aurora man who went on a carjacking and robbery spree that spanned the Denver metro area in 2016 was convicted of numerous crimes on June 6.

Tremaine Speer, 33, was found guilty of 17 counts, including aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and second-degree assault.

Speer's crime spree consisted of seven incidents in July 2016 throughout Littleton, Aurora, Denver, Commerce City and Westminster. Speer was wearing an electronic ankle monitor at the time, having been paroled from prison only weeks before.

Speer committed several armed carjackings, including one in which he hit a woman in the face with a handgun in the parking lot of the Littleton Museum, and another of an Aurora woman who had just pulled into her driveway with her young son in the car.

“Without question, our community is safer with this serial carjacker and career criminal behind bars,” District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement. “Speer is one of the fundamental reasons we have prisons.”

Speer's sentencing is set for July 25.
