(KUSA) A man armed with a rifle and a handgun crashed a stolen SUV through a garage, and then attempted to carjack vehicles on Colorado's Interstate 70 near Genesee Wednesday before being tackled by a Jefferson County deputy.

The incident began with a traffic stop at around 2:40 p.m.and played out on Lookout Mountain, along I-70. A man and woman -- identified as a juvenile-- were in a Ford Crown Victoria when a Jefferson County deputy pulled them over.

While the deputy was running the man's driver's license, the couple took off. The deputy did not pursue because it's against police. Thirty minutes later, the couple allegedly carjacked a blue Subaru with at least two victims inside before crashing that vehicle.
