Aurora Woman Faces Multiple Serious Charges After Leading Police on a Chase in Stolen Car from Colorado Springs
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has made several arrests in the past 24 hours, from Sunday to Monday, related to stolen vehicles. More information on the other arrests can be found here.
On Monday morning, the authorities made an arrest following an incident. The Parker Police attempted to stop a vehicle on Parker Road, but the driver chose not to comply. It was later discovered that the suspect vehicle, a 2010 Nissan Rogue, had been reported stolen from Colorado Springs.
The Parker Police Department made an attempt to pull over the vehicle on Parker Road at Stroh Road. However, the vehicle managed to evade their officers and continued heading southbound on Parker Road, as stated in a news release by the sheriff’s office.
While driving at speeds of over 100 miles per hour, deputies noticed the vehicle on Highway 83, moving in the wrong direction on the northbound lanes.
According to the release, instead of trying to stop the vehicle immediately, deputies chose to monitor it from a distance. They were able to successfully deploy stop sticks and initiate a brief pursuit. However, the vehicle ended up crashing through a fence, becoming airborne, and ultimately colliding with the concrete base of a gas pump at a nearby gas station.
The suspect, Savanna Cook, attempted to flee but was eventually apprehended. Upon searching the vehicle, authorities discovered suspected fentanyl and methamphetamine. Cook is facing several charges, including second-degree motor vehicle theft, vehicular eluding, criminal mischief, obstructing a peace officer, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Additionally, the passenger, Arthur Isaac Sandoval, was also arrested for violating a protection order and obstructing a peace officer.
