Suspects Felony Menace a Driver, Flee From Law Enforcement, Then Crash on CMU Campus #GVCopBeat

Posted on

imageThe Grand Junction Police Department, with assistance from the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, have two suspects detained and are looking for two more.

The incident began just after 8:30 p.m. when a victim reported people in a white Jeep SUV pointed a gun at him while he was driving on Patterson Rd.  A Mesa County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted the suspect vehicle near 28 1/4 Rd and Orchard Ave and began pursuing it south to North Ave, where it collided with another vehicle and then continued on.  Once the suspects drove into a residential area, the deputy ended the pursuit.

At approximately 8:45 p.m. another MCSO deputy spotted the suspect vehicle heading west on Elm Ave. and he began following them. The suspects crossed 12th St. and continued onto a pedestrian area on the CMU campus. The driver eventually crashed into a fire hydrant on the football practice field near Cannell Ave. and the four people inside jumped out and began running.

Deputies called for a lockdown of the campus while they chased the suspects.  Two of them have not been caught at this time.  The lockdown was lifted at 9:15 p.m.  They are described as men, 5’8″ tall with brown hair, and last seen wearing black clothing.  If you have information about their identities or locations please call 970-242-6707.

    5’8″ with brown hair. Narrows it down. Having to be “politically correct” for fear of upsetting someone and not being able to identify the race of the suspects is not of any help. Smh America.

      Tom,
      Unfortunately we had a very limited description for the two suspects and put out all of the information we had at the time. Had we known their race we would have included it. We are working on an update to this post. Stay tuned for more information.

    And our wonderful local judicial system will have these individuals out menacing other before you can count to three. The police are out there corralling miscreants and the judicial system turn them loose.

    Thanks for the info. I heard about the lock down, but no other details and that just gave rise to many many questions.
