Several people taken into custody after incident with 3 stolen vehicles

AURORA, Colo. — Several people were in custody Wednesday night after an incident involving three stolen vehicles, the Aurora Police Department said.

Police said officers saw a stolen vehicle near East Sixth Avenue and Peoria Street.

The stolen vehicle then got on eastbound I-70 when officers noticed it was following another stolen vehicle, police said.

The stolen vehicle in front left the interstate in Bennett when police said the driver got out and carjacked someone, then returned to the interstate, police said.

Another law enforcement agency got involved and followed the carjacked vehicle until it crashed in Strasburg. The driver was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, police said.

Police said the second stolen vehicle continued east until the driver jumped from the vehicle while it was still moving, ran on foot and got into a third stolen vehicle as a passenger.

Officers stopped the third vehicle and took multiple people into custody, police said.

Police originally said there was a pursuit of the stolen vehicles but later corrected that, saying none of the four law enforcement agencies involved in the arrests pursued any vehicle.
