Anonymous tip leads to arrest of fugitive in Oakley
April 17, 2018
An anonymous tip helped Summit County Sheriff's deputies locate a 20-year-old man with multiple outstanding warrants out of the Midwest Sunday night in Oakley.
Deputies arrested Braiden Eric Guido, of Hiawatha, Kansas. He was charged in 3rd District Court Tuesday with aggravated assault, failure to respond to officer's signal, failure to stop at the command of a law enforcement officer and criminal trespass. The aggravated assault charge stemmed from an incident involving a woman earlier in the day, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Dispatch received information from an anonymous caller at around 1:58 p.m. that a fugitive with warrants out of Nebraska and Kansas was heading to Weber Canyon, according to the Sheriff's Office. When deputies located Guido's vehicle hours later at a South Summit home, they waited until he left to attempt to pull him over.
Guido sped away from deputies in his vehicle with his headlights off, but eventually stopped on N. Bench Road, according to the Sheriff's Office. He allegedly jumped out of the car and fled, initiating a search that involved law enforcement agencies from Kamas, Park City and the Utah Highway Patrol. He was located in a nearby barn and arrested.
