Suspects break into Monument homes, steal 2 SUVs

Posted: Updated:
Monument -

A juvenile is facing charges of auto theft, for starters, following a series of break-ins and a police chase early Tuesday morning in Monument.

El Paso County Sheriff's Office deputies were the first called out around 4:00 a.m. for multiple burglaries where the suspects got into cars and used garage door openers to get inside homes.

One homeowner in Woodmoor Acres Drive told Monument Police officers someone stole a Chevy Traverse and a Jeep Compass. 

Officers and deputies caught up with the suspects stopped at a red light on North Gate Boulevard. In a rush to avoid officers, the suspects crashed into each other, then took off.

The Jeep went south on I-25 at a high rate of speed, causing officers to cancel a pursuit due to safety concerns.

The driver of the Chevy went towards Air Force Academy property before turning onto the Santa Fe Trail and crashing.  A search by Air Force Security Forces found no sign of the suspect.

Hours later the juvenile was found and arrested at a different location.

Investigators still need to find the other driver and the black 2016 Jeep Compass with Colorado license plate WOQ-409.

If you have any information, call the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at 719-390-5555.
