EAGLE COUNTY – Police haven’t found a man involved in a car chase that ended in Dotsero Thursday.Dozens of police and sheriff’s deputies from Eagle and Garfield counties searched for a man who allegedly stole a car in Arizona and fled from police in Glenwood Springs after not paying for gas there. He eventually ditched the car on the Colorado River Road north of Dotsero and vanished into the hills.”I imagine he got back to the interstate and hitchhiked,” said Glenwood Police Lt. Bill Kimminau. “I haven’t heard of anything strange going on in that area this weekend.”If found, the man could face the following charges in Colorado: Eluding police, reckless driving, theft of gas in Glenwood Springs. In Arizona, he could be charged with vehicular theft, Kimminau said.Police in Tempe, Ariz., have issued an arrest warrant for the man.”They figured out who stole the car,” Kimminau said. “We need to determine if he was the same guy who was in the car when the pursuit started.” Staff Writer Veronica Whitney can be reached at 949-0555, ext. 454 or vwhitney@vaildaily.com.
