LONGMONT, Colo. — The girlfriend of the man accused of carjacking three people and leading police on a two-hour, 100-mile chase on Wednesday morning, was arrested on Tuesday night on apparently unrelated charges, according to police.
Longmont Police identified Julie Pawlak as the girlfriend of carjacking suspect Ryan Stone. She was arrested Tuesday night around 7 p.m., and accused on being involved in the theft of a Longmont truck and for violating a protection order that prohibited her from possessing marijuana.
A probable cause warrant was issued for Pawlak on Tuesday night after police reportedly received information that she provided a false identity and was seen in the possession of a white Ford F-350 that was reported stolen in Englewood.
When an officer detained her just southwest of Mountain View Cemetery in Longmont, Pawlak said her name was “Kristen,” according to an arrest affidavit. According to that same affidavit, Pawlak later admitted that she lied about her identity because she thought the officer was “coming at her crooked.”
Pawlak also told the officer that she had been a passenger in the stolen truck with a man she called “Ryan.” Police had initially identified Ryan Stone as the suspected thief of the truck. Stone was later arrested in Douglas County after allegedly stealing an SUV in Longmont Wednesday morning and ditching it for two other stolen vehicles in the process of a two-hour high-speed chase.
After Pawlak was taken into custody, police said they found her in possession of a bottle containing 2.1 grams of a green leafy substance that tested presumptive positive for marijuana. That placed Pawlak in violation of a protection order prohibiting her from possessing or consuming marijuana, according to the arrest affidavit.
In addition to the presumed marijuana, Pawlak was also reportedly found to be in possession of three glass pipes with white residue suspected to be Methamphetamine, a slew of other suspected drug paraphernalia, including three empty syringes and a plastic container with a small straw inside.
