A wild crime spree caught on tape. Video from a TV news chopper shows a rifle-toting suspect and his alleged female accomplice walking through a hillside in Jefferson County, Colorado. Police say they were on the run after a carjacking. The man finds his way into a state transportation yard and tries to drive away in a plow truck. Meanwhile, the woman is arrested. The suspect then tries to steal a truck at this home. But when he can't get it to start, he goes inside the garage and drives through the door in an SUV. He eventually gets stuck off road and makes his way to a nearby interstate. With rifle in hand, he tries to stop drivers to pick him up. Moments later, a motorcycle deputy convinces the man to put down his rifle. After a short chase, the suspect is taken down. A driver gets out of his car to help hold down the man until more officers arrive.
