Vehicle chase near Cheyenne on I-25 ends in Colorado with one arrest

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - A Trooper with the Wyoming Highway Patrol attempted to make a traffic stop near Cheyenne earlier this morning, before quickly turning into a vehicle chase south on Interstate 25, March 7. The Trooper attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a blue Jeep Cherokee around 9:17 a.m. when the Jeep failed to stop for the Trooper. The pursuit began on College Drive (WY-212) near the intersection with South Greeley Highway (US-85), when the SUV eventually fled south for eight miles on US-85 towards Colorado. The pursuit continued into Colorado on multiple county roads near the Carr, Colorado area where the suspect drove off-road multiple times, including one time that did not allow the Wyoming Trooper to follow. The Wyoming Trooper observed the Jeep until the Colorado State Patrol located the SUV on Interstate 25, where the suspect stopped for the Colorado State Patrol just south of the Wyoming state line. The suspect was taken into custody by the Colorado State Patrol. As the Wyoming Highway Patrol did not make the arrest of the suspect in Colorado, they will not be releasing the suspect's identity. Future charges are pending against the suspect in Wyoming as the investigation continues that will have to be served via an arrest warrant. #shortgo #news
