Wanted sex offender leads cops on chase, crashes into police car

Lance Worrall

Wanted sex offender Lance Dylan Worrall was apprehended Friday evening by police, but not until he led them on a chase in which Worrall hit three other vehicles and ran head-on into a police cruiser.

Officers and deputies with the Grand Junction Police Department and Mesa County Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Units spotted a vehicle they believed Worrall might be traveling in near the 2900 block of North Avenue, then followed it to the Candlewood Mobile Home park near D and 32 Rd in Clifton.

Police say Worrall then sped away after being contacted, striking multiple vehicles before hitting the marked GJPD car. He continued driving, eventually jumping out of the car and into nearby backyards. A woman in the car also took off running when the car stopped. Both were eventually taken into custody.
