[youtube][/youtube]With the smartphone industry rapidly expanding, one Colorado State senior is taking advantage of old phones.

Brennan Zelener founded Newaya Recycling two years ago and in 2011 alone, he raked in a total of $30,000 in revenue.

This year, he is hoping to see his company’s annual revenue surpass $50,000.

He purchases old smartphones from local Fort Collins residents and businesses, wipes any data off the phones, and sells the phones internationally for a 30% profit.

Zelener is hoping to graduate from CSU in the spring of 2013.

UPDATE: Sigg appeared in court Thursday morning for the first time. He is to be tried as an adult and is being held without bond. Sigg’s family was in the courthouse for the initial hearing as well as Jessica’s family. Jefferson County District Attorney Scott Storey is reporting overwhelming evidence against Sigg.

Police say they have made an arrest in the abduction and murder of  Jessica Ridgeway. Austin Reed Sigg, a 17-year-old from Westminster has been arrested and has five charges pending including two charges of murder in the first degree. Sigg is a student at Arapahoe Community College. Police can’t confirm if DNA was a factor in this case yet. They also can’t confirm how he was turned in, although there are rumors that his mother turned him in. Westminster Police Chief Lee Birk said this is a, “significant step for justice for Jessica.” Police wanted to thank the community for the continued support in the investigation. Jefferson County District Attorney Scott Storey said this arrest will hopefully, “cause the community to rest easier.” Jessica’s family has been notified of the arrest.  Police say the investigation is ongoing even though this arrest has been made. Sigg’s first court appearance is scheduled for Thursday morning at 8. Stay tuned to CTV for further updates.
