PUEBLO – Pueblo Police are looking for the driver of a stolen Ford F-150 involved in multiple pursuits in the Steel City early Thursday morning.

Police said an officer was flagged down by two women who said they’d been rear-ended by a person driving aggressively in a Ford F-150 around 2:40 a.m. Thursday.

When the officer got out of his cruiser, that F-150 almost hit him at “a high rate of speed.” A different officer saw the truck later in the morning at Minnequa and Orman. The suspect took off, leading officers on a chase to E. 4th and Vision Lane. That’s where officers called off the chase due to excessive speed.

No one was hurt.

Pueblo Police said the F-150 has been spotted two additional times by officers after the chase. Each time, the driver waited until officers were close before taking off at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle is described as a maroon-colored F-150. It has Colorado plates CCN-944. If you see the truck, call police right away.
