TORRINGTON – A suspicious person call Thursday afternoon led to a high-speed vehicle pursuit in Goshen County that ended in the arrest of a North Dakota man wanted on a felony warrant in Colorado.
James Calvin Theurer, 41, of Minot, N.D., was booked into the Goshen County Detention Center and is being charged with interference with a peace officer, reckless driving, fleeing to elude peace officers and multiple traffic violations, in addition to possible Colorado charges.
According to Goshen County Sheriff's Department Captain Bryan Morehouse, officers received a call at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday of a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a residence in Lingle. Officers made contact with a male who provided false information about his identity.
While attempting to get accurate information from the male, Theurer fled from officers in a 1984 Cadillac.
“The pursuit left Lingle eastbound with speeds reaching 100 mph. Officers from the Lingle Police Department, Wyoming Highway Patrol and the Goshen County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop Theurer as he sped through traffic, almost causing multiple crashes,” Morehouse reported.
Officers with the Torrington Police Department set up a roadblock on the west side of Torrington. Law enforcement officials were able to get Theurer stopped just east of County Road 47, prior to entering the city limits of Torrington.
