EL PASO COUNTY, CO — The El Paso County Sheriff's Office has identified the two suspects who fled from police in the early morning of January 10th, 2023.
They were identified as Aaron Miller, 48, and Darlene Griffith, 45.
Both suspects were arrested on January 16, 2023, at a motor home within the limits of Colorado Springs. While Griffith surrendered, Miller instead barricaded himself in the motor home but eventually surrendered to the Colorado Springs Police Department's Tactical Enforcement Unit.
Both suspects were booked into the El Paso County ail on numerous Felony, Misdemeanor, and traffic-related charges.
The original incident in question consisted of EPSO deputies approaching a parked car with two men sleeping in the driver and passenger seats on January 10.
Deputies approached a grey BMW SUV parked in an industrial area of unincorporated El Paso County in Cimarron Hills near Terminal Avenue and Ford Street.
According to deputies, the vehicle did not have a license plate and the man in the driver's seat was dressed in what appeared to be ballistic armor.
Upon deputies trying to make contact, the driver immediately fled the scene, driving forward through a chain link fence and through a business parking lot, causing damage to both the fence and significant damage to the vehicle.
Although the suspects were pursued, deputies terminated their pursuit after the suspect vehicle eventually moved into opposing lanes of traffic on westbound Galley Road just west of Powers Boulevard.
