Wanted Man Eludes Authorities


A man eludes authorities for several hours today after failing to stop for a Colorado State Patrol Trooper. The trooper attempted to pull over Eugene Martinez near the I–70 business loop and 30 road.
Martinez motioned to the trooper as if he was going to cooperate but then sped off and began weaving through traffic.
Because of heavy traffic the trooper was unable to follow Martinez but he was seen running into the Parkside Apartments on 29 road and Orchard Avenue. After searching the apartment complex for more than a hour authorities were unable to locate Martinez.
He is described as a hispanic male in his early 20's.
He 5'8" and weighs about 160lbs. He was last seen wearing a white t–shirt with blue jeans. If you see Martinez you are asked to dial 911 immediately. In addition to three arrest warrants Martinez also faces charges of reckless driving, felony eluding, and resisting arrest.
