Suspect Flees Deputies On I-25, Ends Up Escaping at Centerra
It sounds like a bit of mayhem on Tuesday night, as deputies tried pulling over a vehicle and the man taking off and eventually eluding arrest.
I had heard about 'craziness' at the Promenade Shops at Centerra on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, as I was out after work at Rock Bottom on Wednesday.
Folks were talking about how on Tuesday night, there were police officers inside Rock Bottom looking for a suspect who had fled on foot after eluding officers. The rumor mill had it that a man got pulled over and took off.
They said that 'a lot' of authority agencies were there — including Larimer County Sheriff, the Colorado State Patrol, and Timnath Police; blocking the exits to the Promenade Shops while looking for the man.
Wow. That is craziness.
I contacted the Public Information Officer for the Larimer County Sheriff's Office, David Moore, on Thursday and he gave me the following official information:
10/01 just before 8pm, deputies were at the Love's Travel Center in Berthoud to investigate a reported vehicle tresapass. As one deputy arrived he saw a vehicle leaving, observed a traffic violation, and attempted a traffic stop. The vehicle did not stop and traveled s/b on I25 at speeds as low as 30 mph. The vehicle crossed the median and then fled n/b on I25 at high rates of speed. Road spikes were successfully deployed at US34 and the vehicle stopped next to Centerra. The driver fled on foot toward Centerra and multiple agencies assisting in the search including the use of a K9. The suspect was not located.
I don't see anything about the suspect entering stores and/or changing clothes.
We'll keep you posted on this story as more information becomes available.
