Big photos, video below.
This morning's news cycle was dominated by an event that many Coloradans watched live -- a police chase after a car-jacking suspect who'd raced away from a Longmont gas station in a stolen vehicle with a four-year-old boy inside.

Fortunately, the conclusion of the story is relatively happy for most people other than Ryan Stone, who was taken into custody and is expected to add to his already extensive rap sheet with a slew of new charges. We've got photos, video and details below.

According to 7News, Stone, whose record is said to include multiple arrests on drug and theft beefs, was already on the radar of the Longmont Police Department prior to this morning's pursuit.

His thus-far unidentified girlfriend was cuffed last night after being found in a stolen car -- and authorities suspect that Stone was involved.

Then, just after 6 a.m., a red minivan was swiped at a gas station located at 1750 Main Street in Longmont.

The woman who owned the vehicle had left her son, subsequently identified as Allen Chavarria-Rodriquez, inside. As such, an Amber Alert was immediately issued, with the Longmont cops releasing this surveillance image of the suspect:

The first break came around 7:15 a.m., when the minivan in question was eyeballed heading south on I-25 in the Thornton area.

Police soon responded, resulting in a chase that continued through neighborhoods and on roadways such as Interstate 76 while news helicopters captured the action.

Then, at E-470 near 152nd, the wanted driver, ID'd as Stone, abandoned his red minivan in favor of a gold one that he managed to block and and then snatch when the latter's two occupants bailed out.

Fortunately, Stone didn't take young Allen with him. The boy was found moments later by members of the Commerce City Police Department.

He was shaken up but otherwise safe and unharmed.

Meanwhile, Stone left a trail of havoc in his wake, avoiding stop sticks left by law enforcers on at least two occasions, and actually striking a Colorado State Patrol trooper in the vicinity of E-470 and Chambers. The trooper is reportedly in surgery at this time with serious injuries.

Other cars were also hit by Stone, including a silver BMW, which he commandeered after yanking the female driver out of the passenger compartment and hurling her to the ground. But he ditched the Beemer around Peoria and Lincoln and continued on foot. Bad idea: He was rounded up just after 8 a.m., bringing the chase to an end.

Of course, Stone's latest journey through the criminal justice system is only beginning.

But best to lock the car in case the child got out of the car and was hit you never know with kids.

I lock my doors regardless if I leave my children inside a car. If it's cold for a few minutes isn't going to hurt them, I'm sure we all bundle our kids up in the cold. As far as shooting this man in a field or saving tax dollars and being done with him... You people are no better, I sure hope none of your kids or anyone related to you mess up, or would you like to be the one who pulls the trigger? This is why we have a judicial system and not some chaotic dark age monarchy.

She didn't have the intention of neglecting her boy. It was 6:30am and probably freezing cold out there. No need to judge or say who's a bad parent. Suspect is caught, child is safe, period dot.

i think that 4 year old should be commended for the eventual catching of this man!! It's probably the only reason he switched from the first car (holding the 4 year old) and into that gold mini van, because he became aware there was a child in the back (so i wouldnt really call this kidnapping) it's more like straight up vehicular theft! I bet if he hadnt changed vehicles in the first place, this may not have turned out like it did...

Find an empty field somewhere and be done with him and save our tax dollars.

The bounty hunter said "we knew he was our man". and the dude said "he can't do the time " (Paging Barretta)

If it runs like a dumb ass, looks like a dumb ass and talks like a dumb ass.... Its a dumb ass.... Hopefully he gets locked away for good!

Well what about balloon boy.. They had to pay for the services.. The mom probably doesn't even pay taxes period.. Lol

I agree with John but waking up to this asshole riding through our neighborhoods with not a care for any other human being on the road infuriates me as well. Question is why was he on the street anyway, infecting our world. He needs not to go to jail, but to be taken out to the pastures and shot like a rabid dog. He will never be a positive influence in our society. Just do what needs to be done so we don't waste any more money on this shitbag. F-Him.

Have her pay for the service that police provided that she already pays for with her taxes? Yeah, no.

I could careless if it was a short distance.. If I put my kids 5 feet away from me and they are in the car while I run inside... Who's problem would that be?? Mine

Jenny Castaneda

Kid left in a running car.... Car stolen with kid in it... If I left my kid in the car then I would be charged with child endangerment!

"We're talking very short distances," Satur said, according to The Denver Channel. "It is not like she left her kid in the car for hours on end. She just parked outside the business and walked in and the guy jumped in the car. So, we're talking maybe 15 or 20 feet."

All I see is a Piece of shit!!!!Give him life!!

What about the mom?? She should be charged for leaving her kid in the car and them the funds that they used for the chase also add that to her tab...

Put this piece of shit behind bars for a good long time! As a Longmont resident, I am thankful that the 4-year old boy is ok. I am also infuriated that this happened, and between carjacking, kidnapping and a police/helicopter chase, I will be outraged if this cretin does not spend at least a handful of years behind bars. And NO PAROLE!!
