24 Years Prison for Armed Carjacking and Eluding Police

Joseph Saiz

(Golden, CO – September 22, 2020)  Joseph Raymond Saiz, DOB: 4-17-95, was sentenced to 24 years in prison for the armed carjacking of an Arvada man. Saiz pled guilty on August 17, 2020 to Aggravated Robbery (F3); Vehicular Assault (F5); and Menacing (F5). He was sentenced on September 17, 2020. 

On the day of the offense, Saiz was on bond and on probation in two other counties. This is his fourth felony conviction.

On December 14, 2019 Arvada police were called to the 5900 block of W. 68th Avenue regarding an armed carjacking.  Saiz had approached the 34-year-old male victim at his home, forced him to the ground at gunpoint and stole his truck. 

Police located Saiz in the stolen truck and attempted a traffic stop.  Saiz fled at high rate of speed, eluding police. He made a U-turn, crashing into multiple vehicles and injuring a 75-year-old woman. He continued on three wheels in the damaged truck until it came to a stop. He then fled on foot. Law enforcement’s foot pursuit continued in and out of neighborhoods, during which time Saiz fired shots. Mutual aid was called in to help locate Saiz, including multiple metro law enforcement agencies, K9 Units, and a police helicopter. He eluded capture but was arrested three weeks later, on January 8, 2020. 

A female codefendant was also in the stolen truck with Saiz. She pled guilty on August 17, 2020 to Robbery (F4) and False Reporting (M3). Her sentencing has been set for September 28, 2020.
