CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a man in custody after a car chase that began in Wyoming and ended in Colorado is suspected of stealing the vehicle.

Patrol spokesman Sgt. Stephen Townsend says the Cadillac Escalade was reported stolen early Wednesday in Thermopolis, which is about 300 miles from Cheyenne.

The vehicle was equipped with a service that can track stolen vehicles and was spotted north of Cheyenne on Interstate 25. The vehicle would not stop for troopers.

It then ran over two sets of tire spikes that deflated two tires but continued into Colorado where it exited the interstate at the Carr interchange.

The driver eventually stopped on a county road. He was taken into custody, pending extradition to Wyoming.

There were no injuries.
