On Tuesday, at approximately 1:23 p.m., the El Paso County Sheriff's Office received a report of a suspect stealing clothing items and automotive parts from a store on Widefield Boulevard.
As deputies arrived on scene, the vehicle eluded law enforcement and the pursuit was quickly terminated.
After crashing into a vehicle at Fountain Mesa Road and Caballero Avenue, the suspect fled the scene of the crash. The vehicle was later recovered abandoned at Mesa Ridge High School. The suspect was last seen on foot heading eastbound on Mesa Ridge Trail.
The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s, medium build with blonde and gray hair. He has tattoos on his right cheekbone area, right shoulder, and on his right and left forearms.
(See photos of the suspect and of the recovered vehicle.)
