BOULDER, Colo. — A suspect in an armed robbery led law enforcement on a high-speed chase in Boulder County on Tuesday morning, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.
The robbery happened about 9:30 a.m. in the 5200 block of Sunshine Canyon Drive in unincorporated Boulder County.
The sheriff’s office says two male suspects entered the residence and at least one was armed with a handgun. The suspects allegedly demanded marijuana from the resident and when he did not comply, one of the suspects fired a handgun into the couch and then pistol whipped the victim with the weapon.
The suspects left the residence with an unknown amount of marijuana, according to Boulder police.
Deputies found a 45-year-old man with nonlife-threatening injuries, treated him then transported him to a hospital.
The suspect then led Boulder police and Boulder County sheriff’s deputies on a chase through the city before going south toward Golden on Highway 93.

Officers called off the chase when the vehicle, a white 2012 Chevrolet Suburban, left the city. The vehicle was last seen on Highway 128 near Interlocken Loop.
Law enforcement from the sheriff’s office, Boulder police and the Colorado State Patrol pursued the suspect until they were close to Broomfield, then called off the chase because of dangerous driving conditions.
One suspect was identified by a license plate on the vehicle that was driven to the residence and detectives matched that vehicle with an address in Adams County.
The vehicle was seized at 7:30 p.m. but no suspects were found.
