Update, 5:00 p.m.: A Grand County Sheriff’s Office news release identifying the two suspects arrested earlier today.

Ely Ryszkowski, a 19-year-old male from Granby and Daisy Waggoner, a 19-year-old female from Granby, led law sheriff’s deputies and Granby Police on a chase just after 9 a.m.

Ryszkowski was driving a car matching the description of one reported stolen in Kremmling around 6:50 a.m. Waggoner was riding in the car. A deputy spotted the car near the Granby airport just after 9 a.m., but the car did not pull over when law enforcement attempted a stop.

Law enforcement lost contact with the car between milepost 218-219 after Ryszkowski intentionally drove at a sergeant attempting to put down tire deflation equipment, allegedly.

A citizen alerted law enforcement that the car had crashed near County Road 5 and the suspects had fled on foot. Law enforcement tracked the suspects to a residence in the 6,000 block of County Road 5, and were able to negotiate them to exit the residence with no further incident.

Deputies booked Ryszkowski on five felony charges, including burglary, attempted assault and motor vehicle theft, and one misdemeanor. Charges against Waggoner include felonies for burglary and motor vehicle theft, as well as a misdemeanor.

Update, 10:34 a.m.: The sheriff’s office shared on Facebook that “two barricaded suspects have been taken into custody without further incident,” and that the shelter in place order has been lifted.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office sent a shelter in place alert for residents within a one-mile radius near the west end of U.S. Highway 40 and County Road 5 area due to an active police incident.

Residents should report any suspicious activity by calling 911.

Further information will be released when it is available.
