County Sheriff’s Report

A convicted sex offender from Salt Lake was arrested at his mother’s house in Coalville after attempting to evade deputies on Sept. 19, Summit County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Andrew Leatham said.

"He was hiding out there," the officer added.

The 22-year-old’s probation officer contacted deputies after the suspect allegedly violated his parole, Leatham said, adding that the man was booked into jail on a $25,000 warrant for sexual battery.

Meanwhile, deputies arrested a 22-year-old Sandy man after he evaded an officer in a high-speed chase during which speeds reached 113 mph on Sept. 19, Leatham said.

The man was initially clocked driving 84 mph on S.R. 224 toward Interstate 80, he said.

"The vehicle was making unsafe lane changes in busy commuter traffic," Leatham said about the older model BMW.

The man was finally stopped on westbound I-80 near Mountain Dell reservoir around 7 a.m. and arrested for felony evading, he said.
