Crime suspect caught in Summit County

Man was wanted in SLC attempted murder case

Monday, Summit County Sheriff’s deputies successfully captured a man wanted in Salt Lake in connection with a violent crime. According to Captain Justin Martinez the arrest demonstrates the extraordinary risks law enforcement officers take, even when handling routine traffic stops.

As a result of their professional handling of the incident, Martinez said, Anthony Vick, age 32, was taken into custody peacefully.

According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was patrolling on Kilby Road when he first observed a vehicle with a taillight violation. The deputy followed the vehicle onto the freeway and watched the driver making erratic lane changes. The officer pulled the vehicle over.

While talking to the female driver, the report states that the officer saw an open case of beer and noted the passengers in the car were "extremely nervous."

When the passengers were asked to identify themselves they allegedly gave false information.

With help from backup officers it was determined that the female passenger was Holly Hathcock, who was wanted on multiple felony warrants. The male passenger in the back seat, Anthony Vick, was wanted for a violent attack on Highland Drive in Salt Lake City on May 29.

Summit County officers took Vick into custody on a $1 million warrant for attempted aggravated murder.

Hathcock was booked into the Summit County Jail on multiple felony warrants and Anthony Vick was turned over to Salt Lake City Police Detectives for follow up on their murder investigation.

According to Martinez, the female driver was released on the scene but may face charges of harboring a fugitive.
