Three people were arrested after leading Pueblo County deputies on a chase Thursday morning, according to the sheriff’s office. One of the suspects had been eluding law enforcement for the past two days.
Deputies said Ross Vinson, 34, had five warrants for his arrest, and was also wanted in connection with an identity theft case from earlier this week. Deputies spotted him driving on the north side of Pueblo Wednesday afternoon and tried to pull him over, but he refused to stop. Then, Thursday morning, deputies saw his car on the east side of Pueblo. They tried to pull him over, but he again refused to stop.
Around 9 a.m. Thursday, deputies spotted Vinson at a hotel on the north side of Pueblo. Deputies saw him and two other people leave the hotel and head southbound on I-25. They followed the car until it stopped in a lot near Pueblo Boulevard and Lake Avenue. Deputies used an unmarked patrol car to try to block him in, but Vinson rammed the car and drove off. Deputies then chased him through the south side and used a PIT maneuver to stop his car on Columbine Avenue.
Three deputies sustained minor injuries while taking Vinson into custody, according to the sheriff’s office. All three were treated and released.
Vinson is charged with vehicular eluding, assault, attempted assault, resisting arrest, and reckless driving, along with the original warrants.
The other two people in the car were also arrested. Gina DeHerrera, 34, is accused of aiding escape. Adam Vigil, 31, was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
