UPDATE: The suspect accused of multiple carjackings was located and arrested by Longmont police, Colorado State Patrol said. The original story continues below.
The incident began around 8:30 a.m. near Interstate 25 and Highway 119 in Weld County. CSP was assisting an officer with a stolen vehicle.
According to CSP, the suspect involved in the stolen vehicle incident stole an unmarked patrol vehicle.
That vehicle was disabled near Colorado Highway 286 and U.S. Highway 66.
However, CSP said the suspect then carjacked an occupied vehicle and went west into Longmont.
After that, the suspect allegedly carjacked another car, a silver Dodge truck with the Colorado license plate AKWF25. It was described as a business-owned truck with green rectangular stickers on the tailgate and doors.
CSP said the suspect was arrested Sunday.
FOX31 spoke with a woman who said she came face to face with the suspect when he tried to steal her car.
“In the moment, I was kind of shocked and frozen because I wasn’t sure what was going to happen or he was even armed at the time,” the woman said.
She said she was still in the car outside of a store in Lyons when the suspect approached her.
“So he approached my passenger door and opened it and at the time that he opened it, he grabbed my right arm and we kind of made eye contact for a second. He then shooshed me and then shut my door and took off,” the woman said. “Lock your doors, even if you’re sitting in the car.”
