Car theft suspects arrested after car chase

Two Albuquerque car theft suspects are in jail after a car chase that ended with an interesting mugshot. 

APD says they arrested 30-year-old Michelle Espinoza and 34-year-old Matthew Lopez Saturday night.

Police say Espinoza was driving a stolen car in southeast Albuquerque as she avoided arrest. She is accused of trying to hit an officer with the stolen car at one point.

Lopez, the passenger who was wearing cat-eye contact lenses, had an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest at the time. 

Both were eventually arrested and are now locked up at MDC.
