Man Runs from Utah Police Into Idaho
TREMONTON, Utah (AP) — Police say a 26-year-old man wanted on drugs and weapons charges managed to evade police Monday morning after a high-speed chase from northern Utah to southern Idaho.
Tremonton Police Chief Dave Nance says officers pulled the man over around 4 a.m. for a traffic violation on Main Street in Tremonton, about 20 miles south of the Idaho border. Nance says officers spoke to the man but he drove off, leading them on a chase north to Garland and Interstate 15 toward Idaho.
The Standard-Examiner reports officers abandoned the pursuit as they approached Idaho as that state did not have officers near the border to continue. Nance says there’s a $30,000 warrant out for the man, whose name was not released. He had not been arrested as of Monday morning.
