Colorado Springs police are searching for two people who fled officers and a bail bondsman after they dumped a padlocked trailer in a west side Wal-Mart parking lot.

Police received a call Wednesday night from a bail bondsman claiming that he was following a car with four people inside, one of whom is parole violator. The car was pulling a locked trailer, which was dumped at the 8th Street Wal-Mart while the bondsman followed it.

The car later pulled into a Dunkin Donuts nearby, and crashed into a car while leaving the parking lot, catching the attention of a police officer in the area, police said.

While pursuing the car, officers saw it stop and the four occupants fled. Two were caught, and a K9 unit was searching for the other two in 200 block of North 14th Street around 10 p.m., police said.

Officers had not opened the padlocked trailer late Wednesday.
