High-speed chase, carjacking, kidnapping suspect to face 26 charges

DENVER -- Ryan Stone, the suspect accused of auto theft, kidnapping, carjacking and leading police on a two-hour, high-speed chase, appeared in a Douglas County courtroom Wednesday morning.

Stone will face 26 count, including attempted murder and kidnapping, and could be sentenced up to 100 years in prison, tweeted Channel 2 News' Dave Young.

The suspect, who has a long criminal record, was arrested March 12 following a wild two-hour car chase that led law enforcement from Longmont to Parker, covering nearly 100 miles.

He was taken into custody in Douglas County and is now accused of stealing a car with 4-year-old Allen Chavarria-Rodriquez still inside, which prompted an Amber Alert, and carjacking two other vehicles with police in hot pursuit, among other charges.

The chase also resulted in an injured Colorado State Trooper.

Trooper Bellamann Hee suffered serious injuries in the incident, undergoing two surgeries. CSP spokesperson Nate Reid told FOX31 Denver they except Bellamann to make a full recovery.

On March 14, Stone was advised of his charges in a Douglas County court and bond was set at $3.5 million.
