Tremonton police chief Dave Nance said a Garland officer reported following a vehicle apparently stolen from Sofa’s Bar in Garland just before 9 p.m. The pursuit ended up on the Iowa String Road southbound, near the Maverik station, when the driver failed to make a left hand turn at 600 South at a high rate of speed and struck a tree. The driver fled from the vehicle on foot, just before it burst into flames and burned. The Tremonton Fire Department responded to the fire.
Tremonton officers joined Garland police in a search of the surrounding neighborhoods for the man and a Brigham City canine unit was also called in to assist. The suspect was reported spotted by several residents, but officers were unable to locate him.
About an hour into the search, it was reported that the suspect had made his way back to the Garland area, and an arrest was made.
