Stolen truck pursuit in Longmont

A 28-year-old Loveland woman was arrested after leading law enforcement on a pursuit in a stolen vehicle and on foot through a field early Friday morning, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.

A deputy tried to stop a gray Chevrolet pickup truck near 95th Street and Niwot Road in unincorporated Boulder County about 12:25 a.m., the sheriff’s office said.

The truck was reported stolen at gunpoint Thursday morning in Lakewood, the sheriff’s office said.

On Thursday night, the truck was chased by officers from the Westminster Police Department, but it eluded them.

The driver, later identified as 28-year-old D’kota Joann Loraine Haley of Loveland, led deputies, Colorado State Patrol troopers and Longmont Police Department officers on a chase that reached speeds up to 80 mph, the sheriff’s office said.

Stop sticks were successfully deployed to slow the truck when it was in Longmont.

Haley continued at slower speeds until a tactical vehicle intervention maneuver was used to stop the truck about one mile north of Highways 66 and 287, the sheriff’s office said.

When the truck stopped, Haley fled on foot eastbound through a field, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies and officers gave chase and were able to take Haley into custody.

She was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor cuts to her hands from a barbed wire fence, then booked into the Boulder County Jail.

Haley was arrested for felony eluding, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, revoked driver’s license, criminal mischief, possession of a controlled substance and four outstanding warrants for her arrest.
