Search called off after high-speed crash

March 27, 2008

Two suspects escaped after a high speed chase through Weld and Larimer counties tonight.

The pursuit began around 7:35 p.m. in Fort Collins, and ended almost a half hour later about four miles north of Windsor, when the two suspects fled on foot after crashing their vehicle at Weld County roads 78 and 15.

Eloise Campanella, spokeswoman for the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, said no one was hurt in the crash, but authorities found methamphetamines in the vehicle. She said she was unsure how many miles the chase covered.

According to Campanella, the pursuit began when Fort Collins police officers tried to pull over the vehicle at the intersection of Link and Lincoln in Fort Collins.

The suspects then took off — traveling more than 100 mph — before finally crashing. Campanella said a K-9 unit was called in to aid in the search to no avail.

According to Margie Martinez, spokeswoman for the Weld County Sheriff’s Department, a reverse 911 call was issued at about 8 p.m. to residents within a three-mile radius of Weld 15 between Weld roads 76 and 78 for residents to look for individuals acting suspicious. Weld County dispatch received many calls, but none led to any arrests.

Martinez said the search was called off just before 10 p.m.
