Deputy tackles carjacking suspect on I-70

A feverish crime spree on a dog-day afternoon ended abruptly in the westbound lanes of I-70 on Wednesday when a Jeffco sheriff's deputy brought a suspect to heel on the busy highway.

All told, the carjacking/burglary rampage involved four vehicles and three homes, sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said. It ended dramatically near the Genesee exit when Deputy Fred Haggett tackled the male suspect, who had just surrendered two weapons after terrorizing passing motorists on I-70.
