According to the post, the sheriff's office had been notified by Fort Collins Police that Joshua Nelson, wanted on felony charges in Larimer County, was believed to be in the Laramie area. Deputies learned that Nelson was in the area of Pierce and Taylor at around 3 p.m. Nelson was considered to be violent and dangerous, according to the post. When he saw deputies in the area he ran off, and a foot chase started.

Kyle Bryant told deputies that a man matching Nelson's description had just run through his yard as the chase continued.
