GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado law enforcement official has pleaded guilty to two felony charges for fraud and theft.

The Daily Sentinel reports 49-year-old Michael Taylor pleaded guilty earlier this month to an insurance fraud charge and a charge of theft of between $20,000 and $100,000.
