Springs police have stopped searching a West Side neighborhood but are still on the hunt for two suspects on the run, and police tell us they are considered dangerous.
Police say that four people took off on foot after abandoning their car when police approached them.
Two of those people were arrested. They are still searching for the other two.
Police tell us they have stopped searching the neighborhood with K-9 units for the night because they believe they know who the two suspects are. One is a woman, the other a Hispanic male who is bald.
The male is considered dangerous and was apparently armed. He is wanted for violating parole. Police say a bail bondsman told them that he was on parole for bank robbery.
Police tell us that a bail bondsman spotted the four suspects in a car. The bondsman followed them to a parking lot. When police arrived and tried to approach them, they took off.
They eluded police until they ditched the silver Ford Explorer near 13th and W. Bijou St.
Officers and search dogs flooded the neighborhood for hours. Police say that K-9 units were able to track down two of the suspects.
After interviewing the two arrested, they believe they know who the other two are, and are working to obtain arrest warrants for them.
Police also found a locked trailer in the parking lot of the Walmart on S. 8th St. that the say had been dropped off by the suspects earlier Wednesday evening.
Police thought one of the suspects might be in side, but a search of the trailer came up empty. The store was not evacuated, but shoppers at the Walmart were not allowed to leave through one of the sets of doors at the store while that search was underway. The Walmart is now back to normal operations.
Police say one of the suspects, who was reportedly armed, ran through a woman’s house as police were chasing him. The woman was not hurt.
