ELK MOUNTAIN, Wyoming (AP) – A Colorado man is under arrest after leading authorities on a 163-mile chase in a stolen car in Wyoming.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 25-year-old Martin Anderson of Peyton, Colorado, along with a teenage boy were taken into custody Tuesday after a fourth round of stop sticks finally stopped the 2013 Dodge Charger he was driving near Elk Mountain, Wyoming.

Sheriff’s deputies and police officers first tried to the stop the car, reported stolen from Colorado Springs on July 30, in Riverton. Speeds reached up to 140 mph during the chase.
