Man is arrested on Colorado warrant for attempted murder

Express Staff Writer

A Hailey man was arrested Saturday, Jan. 3, on an attempted murder warrant out of Jefferson County, Colo.

Patrick J. O’Shea, 53, was arrested Saturday morning when he returned to a van that he had left on the city’s Main Street overnight, said Hailey Police Chief Brian McNary. When police ran the van’s license plates prior to nighttime snow removal efforts, the plates returned as stolen. Three pairs of stolen license plates were also discovered inside the van, McNary said.

When he returned for the van in the morning, police placed him under arrest and discovered the Colorado warrant.

McNary said O’Shea was going by the alias James Smith while living in Hailey. He said he did not know where O’Shea had been working, although O’Shea told the chief he had been working as a plumber.

O’Shea, a native of Ireland, is being held at the Blaine County Jail pending extradition to Colorado.

McNary said he was told by Colorado authorities that O’Shea is accused of trying to kill a friend in a scheme that included candles and filling a home full of natural gas.
