Authorities are tight-lipped on who led police on a high-speed chase out of Laramie and rolled a vehicle down an exit ramp this week.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol on Monday posted a Facebook statement saying members from Troops J and A, and WHP Safety and Training staff apprehended suspects after administering life-saving measures to them following a high-speed chase culminating in a rollover.
The statement does not say which day the chase happened.
Suspects In Theft
The suspects, so far unidentified, were allegedly involved in a theft out of Laramie, the statement says.
They led troopers and sheriff’s deputies on a 30-mile chase, tried to navigate an exit to “further elude law enforcement,” but were unable to handle the ramp at high speeds, according to WHP.
The vehicle crashed.
Troopers and deputies from both Laramie and Albany County Sheriff’s Departments, along with Laramie Police Department personnel helped to apprehend the subjects, the statement says, but not until law enforcement officers had used life-saving measures and medically cleared them for arrest.
The suspects have multiple warrants from surrounding states, the statement adds.
Lt. Jeremy Beck, a spokesman for the Wyoming Highway Patrol, did not respond early Tuesday afternoon to a voicemail requesting more information.
Also, Tuesday voicemails to the Albany County Sheriff’s Office and the Laramie Police Department were not answered by publication time.
Laramie County Sheriff’s Office communications personnel could not be reached by publication time Tuesday.
