DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Two burglary suspects were taken into custody Tuesday morning after an hours-long manhunt, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office confirmed.

The two people ran from a stolen car related to burglaries at two business in Sedalia and Happy Canyon, Douglas County Sheriff's Office public information officer Dep. Cocha Heyden confirmed to Denver7.

Sheriff's deputies were called to a business alarm at Sedalia Liquors off N. Highway 85 just after 3:15 a.m. Tuesday, Dep. Heyden wrote in a news release.

While headed there, a deputy saw a blue Ford-250 speeding away from the Conoco at Happy Canyon and Highway 85. The deputy tried to stop the driver, but the person behind the wheel did not comply, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.

There appeared to be two people in the car, Dep. Heyden said. They abandoned the car in the Meadows subdivision still running and a gun on the ground nearby.

Deputies found footprints leading from the car to some buildings in a field on the Waverton Ranch property, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said. The Castle Rock Police Department were able to spot the suspects using a drone.

Law enforcement surrounded the suspects, and both were taken into custody without incident around 7:30 a.m., Dep. Heyden confirmed to Denver7.

One was an adult man, the other was a juvenile. They face several charges, including burglary of both Sedalia Liquors and the Conoco, eluding and motor vehicle theft, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.
