Caller claimed to be in San Angelo shelter
An arrest warrant was issued for Rozita Swinton of Colorado, Springs, Colorado on April 16, 2008, by a district court in El Paso County Colorado. The affidavit filed in support of the warrant reveals that Ms. Swinton is the woman who allegedly placed hoax telephone calls that prompted the raid on the YFZ Ranch. Not only did Swinton’s calls allegedly trigger the raid, but they continued much longer than the public was originally told and well after hundreds of women and children were removed from the YFZ Ranch and taken to shelters in San Angelo.
The affidavit indicates that Schleicher County Reserve Deputy John Conner received calls from a woman identifying herself as Sarah, saying that she was in one of the shelters but that she was being observed by her sister wives and was unable to identify herself to CPS workers or law enforcement officers.
