Douglas County deputies, with the assistance of Monument and Palmer Lake Police, arrested two adult males, in a stolen vehicle, after the driver failed to stop for deputies.
On 06/18/2010, at around 1:16 am, deputies were dispatched to the area of southbound I-25 around mile marker 188 on a REDDI (report every drunk driver immediately) report. They were advised to be on the look out for a white Honda hatchback that was weaving all over the road. When dispatch cleared the license plate that was given to them by the reporting party, it came back to a stolen vehicle out of Aurora.
Deputies spotted the vehicle at mile marker 175, still driving southbound on I-25. The deputy confirmed the license plate that was originally given to them and continued to follow the car while waiting for backup. The deputy activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle. The driver failed to comply and kept driving, at one point acting as if he was going to exit the interstate at mile marker 164, but then swerved back on to I25. Officers from the Palmer Lake Police Department assisted by deploying spike strips on the roadway in front of the stolen vehicle. The right front tire was deflated. The driver took the 158 (Baptist Rd) exit and when the road came to a dead end, both driver and passenger fled on foot. Both were arrested shortly after and transported to the Douglas County Detention Facility.
William Parker, age 23 from Denver, was booked in on charges of; Theft by Receiving, Possession of Burglary Tools, Obstruction, and Resisting Arrest.
Vakhom Xayamoungkhoun, age 29 from Arvada, was booked in on charges of; Theft by Receiving, Vehicular Eluding, Resisting Arrest, Obstruction, and DUI.
This is still an open investigation but more may be available once the case has been filed with the District Attorney’s Office.
