At 1:13 p.m. Boulder police were notified of a theft that had just occurred at a local hardware store. The person that called police was following the suspect who was now inside a moving vehicle. Police quickly located the vehicle in the King Soopers parking lot, located at 1650 30th St., as they are dropping someone off at an entrance. The suspect vehicle drove off, cut a corner, drove the wrong way, hit four parked cars, swerved, and then hit a police car. The driver and passenger are currently in police custody. The police officer sustained minor lacerations to their hands from broken glass.
