WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Two people are in custody after they fled from Westminster police in an allegedly stolen car early Tuesday.

Sgt. Trevor Materasso with the Westminster Police Department said police had located a stolen vehicle at the Super 8 motel at W. 120th Avenue and N. Melody Drive in Westminster. A male and female then walked up to the car and got in. When they discovered that police were nearby, they fled in the vehicle, Materasso said. As they were leaving the motel, the male driver hit two patrol cars, he said. No officers were injured.

Officers chased the suspect vehicle more than three miles west to W. 120th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, where the driver turned and headed south.

At W. 104th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, police put stop sticks on the road, which deflated the suspect vehicle tires when it drove over them, Materasso said. At W. 94th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, police conducted a PIT maneuver. Following a felony stop at a few blocks away at W. 92nd Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, police took a female passenger and the male driver into custody.

It's not clear what charges the suspects will face.

At least a dozen police vehicles responded to the scene.
