A Colorado man is now in the McLennan County Jail after eluding authorities for the past two weeks in both Colorado and Texas.

Christopher Villa, or Joe Ryan Vela as he has been known, 29, stole a 5-series BMW sedan in Silverthorne, Colorado on January 15.

He escaped Colorado State Troopers in a high-speed chase with the help of his girlfriend shortly after.

Villa and the car were seen in Moody by police just this past weekend.

Yesterday, Waco police saw the same car, this time spray-painted black and debadged, outside a house in the 1400 block of Turner St.. 

That's when Waco police moved in on the house.

Villa was taken into custody and will now be facing a long list of charges including theft and evading arrest.
