The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office on Monday morning issued a press release and photos seeking public help in identifying a man suspected of violating Eagle County and Colorado public health orders by crowding people and coughing on food items at Village Market in Edwards.

Here’s the press release and photos:

Deputies with the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the communities help in identifying the male in the attached photos.  The male is believed to be a local resident of Edwards and is suspected of an incident at the Village Market in Edwards, Colorado.

The suspect refused to comply with the Village Market’s (and Eagle County Public Health Order) policy of keeping 6 feet away from customers and employees.  He was asked to step back and then he went on a rant of how the employee was falling for the ‘media hype’.  He then got between a customer and an employee and purposely coughed on the products that the other customer was purchasing.
