Cops spike tires to end chase

Two men who led deputies on a high-speed chase from Kimball Junction into Morgan County were arrested early Monday after a suspect allegedly threw a cash register out the window near Coalville, the authorities say.

The chase started when a Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempted to stop the Mitsubishi Montero for multiple traffic violations, Sheriff Dave Edmunds said, adding that the suspects are from the Snyderville Basin and Heber.

Investigators claim the till lobbed at deputies from the car was taken from Leger’s deli at 1612 W. Ute Boulevard.

The driver reached 104 mph on Interstate 80 as he attempted to evade officers, according to Edmunds.

The two 19-year-old men were taken into custody after deputies used spikes to flatten their tires just past the Summit County line in Morgan, Edmunds said.

The suspects face felony burglary charges, felonies related to attempting to evade officers and misdemeanors including theft, possession of burglary tools, criminal mischief and tampering with evidence.

Summit County Attorney David Brickey said formal charges should be filed this week in 3rd District Court in the Snyderville Basin.

The Park Record usually does not print the names of suspects until formal charges are filed.
