Colorado Fugitive Apprehended in Bozeman

A man who escaped federal custody in Colorado was caught outside of Bozeman this weekend after a high speed chase on I-90.

Here is the official Press Release from the Bozeman Police Department:

On November 1, 2015, the Bozeman Police Department was alerted to fugitive who had escaped federal custody in Colorado.

Gary Joseph Conti, 69 years of age, had fled federal custody mid-day October 30, 2015. We received information that Conti was possibly in the Bozeman area and it was later confirmed with surveillance video.

We received further information from the US Department of Justice – Federal Bureau of Prisons and we alerted other local law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for Conti.

Just after 1pm on November 1, 2015 the Bozeman Police Department took a report of a residence which had been broken into on the south side of Bozeman. A Jeep was stolen from the residence and it was determined Conti had entered the residence and had stolen the vehicle.

Just after midnight on November 2, 2015 officers from the Bozeman Police Department observed the stolen Jeep and attempted to stop the vehicle. Conti began to flee in the vehicle which reached high speeds on the east side of town. The pursuit continued on to Interstate 90 towards Livingston.

Information was communicated to the Park County Sheriff’s Office and their deputies responded to the area near Livingston with spike strips. At the last minute, Conti changed the course of the stolen Jeep and collided head on with an unoccupied Park County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle. The collision happened near mile marker 330 on Interstate 90.

Fire and EMS resources from Park County were dispatched to provide medical care to Conti who had sustained injuries as a result of his crash.

Through the professional actions of our officer as well as the other assisting agencies in this dangerous situation, no other persons were injured as a result of the incident. Conti was transported to a Livingston hospital for medical care.
