Colorado Springs Police for seeking woman for robbery involving firearm
February 03, 2010
CO NEWS -- Carmen Angela Quintana a.k.a Carmen Angela Knowles is most wanted by a whole bunch of law enforcement after allegedly shoplifting at Wal-Mart at 8250 Razorback Road, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Before we begin let it be known, "Nobody pulls a gun in Wal-Mart!" On January 5, 2010, when Carmen Angela Quintana and her accomplice, Jason Robert Lopez, entered the Wal-Mart store to shoplift, neither had any clue they where about to become fugitives in a nationwide manhunt that would even include the FBI and the ATF.
It was a busy Friday at the Wal-Mart store located near Chapel Hills Mall, when Quintana and Lopez were concluded their shopping for the day. As the pair of suspected shoplifters attempted to exit the store Wal-Mart security confronted the couple inside the north entrance. Little did the store security know that this time they were about to bust Jason Robert Lopez, or as we have dubbed, Jason "Loco" Lopez. Pulling a 9mm handgun, Lopez let it be known he was not going with any store security, and if he was going to be busted again, it was going to be by a real cop. Which was eventually exactly what happened.
After fleeing the crime scene in a red, early 1990's model Pontiac with Quintana in the passenger seat (Probably bitching at Lopez in Spanish.) the two shoplifters, now considered armed robbery suspects, managed to escape capture. However, on February 2, 2010, Loco Lopez was arrested in the area of 10211 Ura Lane, in Thornton, Colorado by members of the Southern Colorado Safe Streets Task Force, Aurora Police Department, Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force, Thornton Police Department, and FBI SWAT. Lopez attempted to run, but was cuffed and stuffed. Additionally, after the short foot chase Lopez was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.
Carmen Angela Quintana accomplice Jason Robert Lopez has been charged with Aggravated Robbery, but Quintana still remains a fugitive-at-large. Carmen Angela Quintana is described as:
