He's been on the job for 30 years but it hasn't slowed down Colorado Springs Police Chief Luis Velez.

Last week he showed he still has what it takes.

Chief Velez was outside headquarters when he saw a man snatch a backpack from a woman.

Velez sprinted after the man for about 2 blocks, then, caught him and slapped on the handcuffs.

The man was arrested on suspicion of theft and the backpack was returned.
