A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
A multi-county crime spree came to an end Thursday night after deputies arrested the suspect at Fremont County convenience store.
In just the span of a few hours, Davon Deshawn Cunningham allegedly burglarized a home, stole a Jeep, got involved in a hit-and-run, then trespassed and shot off a gun--all while trying to stay ahead of authorities.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says Cunningham first stole a Jeep and several handguns from a home in Trinidad Thursday evening, then while on the run in the stolen vehicle got involved in a hit-and-run in Pueblo West. He then allegedly escaped into Custer County, and was finally found in Fremont County after trespassing onto land near Florence and firing a shot in the air.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says that shortly after the landowner called authorities, Cunningham was spotted in the stolen jeep driving east on Highway 115. Authorities tracked him to a Florence convenience store and arrested him after he got out of the Jeep.
Cunningham was arrested shortly after 10 p.m.
Cunningham has been charged with aggravated motor vehicle theft, felony menacing, theft by receiving and second-degree criminal trespass.
The Sheriff's Office says Florence and Canon City police assisted with the arrest.
