'Dougherty Gang' Caught After High-Speed Police Chase
Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21, and half brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26 – referred to as the "Dougherty Gang" – crashed their car and were apprehended, Charlene Graham, bureau chief for law enforcement with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office, confirmed to the Denver Post.
A Tweet from the Colorado State Patrol public affairs office also stated, "Short pursuit with 3 sibling fugitives from Florida ends in crash, three in custody."
The sister, Lee Dougherty, a part-time stripper, was reportedly shot in the leg during the police pursuit.
The Doughertys' crime spree began in central Florida earlier this month when they allegedly shot a police officer who tried to pull them over. Five hours later, armed with both an AK-47 rifle and a machine gun, they allegedly robbed a Georgia bank.
The key to finding them, apparently, was their getaway car, a 2006 Subaru Impreza sedan – believed to have been seen in Colorado Springs on Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities said in a statement: "At about 1:30 p.m., the Colorado Springs Police Department received a report that people were spotted in the area of Woodmen and I-25 that matched the description of the Dougherty siblings."
One theory was that the trio had been at a sporting goods store to buy a tent and camping equipment so they could hide out in the Colorado mountains.
While on the run they texted their mother to say: "There's a time for all of us to die."
