Lauren Boebert’s son allegedly made a sex tape with an accomplice in a crime series

An affidavit contains the astonishing claim that the son of Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (CO) released a sex tape in which he and another suspect were involved in their alleged crime spree in Colorado.

Tyler Boebert, 18, was arrested Tuesday on 22 charges related to a series of alleged thefts and car break-ins in Rifle, Colorado, his mother’s congressional district. The allegation that sex videos were filmed was made by the stepmother of an unnamed suspect, who is said to have reported the alleged crime spree to police.

Boebert is now charged with four counts of illegal possession of identification documents and one count of conspiracy to commit a crime, police said. He also faces several misdemeanors, including theft under $300 and soliciting a minor to commit crimes.

One of the victims of Boebert’s alleged crime spree said her 11-year-old daughter was frightened by the ordeal.

In a police summary of the operation obtained by the Daily Beast, the “victim vehicle” was listed as a Kia Sorento — a car that, according to KJCT-TV, belongs to mother of two Roscely Alvarado.

Speaking in Spanish, Alvarado told the broadcaster that the incident had had a major impact on her family and made her rethink her own attitude towards security. She claimed that some of her family’s belongings, as well as the contents of her purse, were stolen in the alleged crime.

“Maybe I should be more careful, never leave my purse in the car again and yes, be more careful,” Alvarado said, according to the station’s translation of her comments. “Be more careful because I have two children, an 11-year-old and a 3-year-old girl. The 3-year-old girl has an illness.”

Alvarado says she knew something was wrong when she sent her older daughter to get her purse from the car. “She said, ‘Mom, the car is dirty, there’s stuff everywhere. I don’t know what happened,'” Alvarado said. “She had my purse in her hand, but without the wallet. She told me there was nothing in the purse.”

Alvarado said that in addition to stealing the contents of the purse, her daughter was also emotionally affected by the incident. “She told me she was scared,” Alvarado said. “She felt like someone from here might have stolen from us and that scared her.”

According to the incident summary, a total of six victims, ranging in age from 3 to 64, were involved in the case. Boebert was arrested along with three other juvenile suspects, whose names have been redacted.

According to an affidavit obtained by the Daily Beast, Boebert circulated a sex tape in which he and a minor co-suspect were involved in the alleged crime spree.

None of the charges against Boebert are related to the alleged sex video, which police said was also alluded to by another minor quoted in the affidavit. That unnamed minor said the video was sent to people he knew.

The affidavit goes on to say that Boebert was caught on surveillance camera footage using stolen credit cards at gas stations and convenience stores with the other suspects. In the footage, he was wearing a “Shooters Grill” shirt with the words “Grits N Glory” on it – a sweatshirt from his family’s now-closed restaurant in his hometown that featured armed waiters.

Police questioned Boebert about the incident at his home on February 27 and asked him if he could provide the names of the people he was with. He reportedly insisted that he did not know their names.

Investigators allegedly pressed Boebert and he eventually admitted he was with the other suspects. The affidavit states he was then arrested.

The affidavit details the suspects’ alleged purchase attempts, including a failed transaction for $717 on clothing website Shein.com, according to police. Another transaction for $175 was made at a Kum & Go supermarket.

“I love my son Tyler, who has endured some very difficult public challenges for a young man and has been the subject of attention he did not ask for,” Lauren Boebert said in a statement Wednesday.

“It breaks my heart to see my child struggling in this situation, especially when he has been given multiple opportunities to get his life back on track,” she added. “I will never give up on him and will continue to be there for him. As an adult and a father, Tyler will take responsibility for his actions and should be held accountable for poor decisions like any other citizen.”

Tyler Boebert’s controversial father Jayson Boebert sent a statement to news site Westword that focused more on himself than his son, but still blamed his son’s alleged crimes in part on a poorly managed “COVID SHUT DOWN” and the media.

Jayson Boebert told Westword that his son called him from jail to check on his baby, Josiah. Jayson Boebert then went to the county jail and picked up his son, he said.

“The challenges we have experienced, especially in the last few years, with school closures, social closures and the depression brought on by a poorly managed COVID SHUTDOWN,” he said in his statement. “Despite our best efforts, sometimes we will fail. As a parent, balancing work, family and personal life while also being a good role model for your children can be incredibly exhausting.”

He added: “In addition, the spotlight of today’s media can magnify and distort even the smallest aspects of your life. It is disheartening when your actions or words are twisted and exaggerated, and a false image is painted to the public. These distortions not only create tension within your family, but also affect your reputation and relationships outside the home.”
