PURSUIT SUSPECT ARRESTED

At about 10:30 Thursday morning, 10/8/2020, the Larimer County Communications Center was advised that the Wyoming Highway Patrol was pursuing a stolen SUV southbound on I-25 into Colorado. Deputies responded to assist and the stolen SUV travelled into Wellington. The driver of the SUV abandoned it and stole another car that was in the driveway of a residence. Deputies located the newly stolen vehicle and pursued the suspect on I-25 southbound. Along the way, a PIT maneuver was attempted but unsuccessful.

The suspect left I-25 onto westbound Hwy 14 towards Ft Collins and the pursuit was terminated for safety. Deputies monitored the location of the suspect, and the pursuit was reengaged east of Timnath. The pursuit was terminated again for safety as the suspect entered Windsor. The suspect was located east of Windsor near the Vestas facility. Another PIT maneuver was attempted and the suspect entered Vestas property where he crashed into a turbine blade and the second stolen car became undrivable. After a short foot pursuit, the suspect was taken into custody. During the pursuit, several fences were damaged.

The suspect was identified as Frank Lopez (3-11-91) who had multiple felony and misdemeanor warrants out of Boulder County for Kidnapping and Failure to Comply with Probation. In addition to the warrants and additional pending charges, he was booked on allegations of:
• Aggravated Vehicle Theft – Felony
• Vehicular Eluding – Felony
• Criminal Mischief – Felony
• Driving Under Revocation – Misdemeanor

Additional criminal charges will also be filed by the Laramie County (Wyoming) Sheriff’s Office related to this criminal episode. Agencies that assisted include Wyoming Highway Patrol, Colorado State Patrol, Timnath Police, Windsor Police, and Greeley Police.

These charges are merely an allegation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.http://ow.ly/i6gn50BNIQD
