Aspen man faces decades in prison after pot store robbery, car chase

Hayden May, 21, held on $100,000 bond after he was charged in Colorado district court

ASPEN — The 21-year-old Aspen man charged with robbing a local marijuana dispensary last month is back in town and facing decades in prison for his crime spree.

Hayden May appeared in District Court in Aspen on Tuesday, where District Judge Gail Nichols ordered him held on a $100,000 cash or surety bond.

By far the most serious charge against him is aggravated robbery of a controlled substance while armed with a deadly weapon. If he’s convicted of that count, he faces a minimum prison term of 16 years and a maximum of 48 years, Nichols said.

May also is charged with felony theft, which mandates a prison term of one-to-three years upon conviction, as well as a harassment charge, which calls for a term of as long as six months. He also will face a charge of aggravated motor vehicle theft, said prosecutor Andrea Bryan.
