The Dougherty Gang, a group of three fugitive siblings accused of crimes in three states, was ordered held on a $1.2 million each by a Pueblo County judge on Thursday.
Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21; Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26; and Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, were likely to face attempted murder charges, authorities told Reuters on Thursday.
All three each face potential charges of attempted murder and first-degree assault of a peace officer, said Bobbi Griffin, district administrator for the 10th Judicial District, in a written statement to the news agency.
The three siblings, wanted for crimes in Florida and Georgia, were caught in Colorado on Wednesday after leading police on a high-speed chase that ended with them crashing their car into a highway barrier, and the sister being shot in the leg by a police officer.
They are accused of a crime spree that included allegedly shooting at a Florida police officer and robbing a Georgia bank. They could face charges in those states, in addition to federal bank robbery charges, Reuters said.
It was credible tip that led police to find the Dougherty Gang.
Police got a tip that the three were seen at a campground in the San Isabel National Forest at about 9 a.m. One Pueblo County Sheriff detective confirmed the tip while in an unmarked patrol car when he saw the vehicle at a gas station off of Interstate 25, according to The Bellingham Herald.
Detective Robbie Newsome secretly followed the Doughertys south down the interstate and radioed for backup from the Colorado State Patrol. Three patrol vehicles moved in swiftly down the interstate, beginning a 10-minute chase with the Impreza.
State patrol has said that a trooper working overtime and overseeing a construction project near Walsenburg, Colo. overheard on his radio what was happening and placed stop sticks on the road. The Impreza hit the stop sticks, crashed and rolled at 9:48 a.m.
All three siblings then ran from the car were caught by the police.
Lee Grace Dougherty, the only female among the pack, was armed with a handgun and ran into a nearby field and was beginning to chamber a round into her gun when she was shot in the leg by a Walsenburg police officer, The Bellingham Herald said.
