JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colorado (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two people are in jail Thursday morning after attempting to steal multiple vehicles, followed by a police chase and this wild event is caught on camera.

It started out as a traffic stop in Jefferson County, Colorado, but when a deputy was checking the driver's ID he and his passenger took off.

The man and woman were found by police a short distance later, running on foot.

The woman was arrested and the man ended up stealing a plow truck.

He then headed to a nearby home, blasting through the garage in a stolen SUV.

After an unsuccessful attempt to off-road in the SUV the man got out and made his way to an interstate with a rifle in hand, trying to snag a ride.

He was eventually caught by a deputy on a motorcycle with the help of a nearby driver.
