Deputy tackles carjacking suspect on I-70

The westbound lanes of Interstate 70 were closed at the Lookout Mountain exit on Wednesday afternoon after an armed carjacking suspect was captured by a Jeffco deputy on the highway.

A juvenile female suspect also is in custody, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley. The male suspect's name and more complete details of the incident will be released on Thursday, Kelley said. A traffic stop earlier Wednesday afternoon appears to have set off the manhunt. In all, the incident involved four cars and three homes, Kelley said.
