OGDEN -- A man suspected of intending to deal methamphetamine was charged Monday in Second District Court.

Police believe Robert Terrazas Sr., 40, fled about 10:30 p.m. July 28 after an officer pulled him over near the 12th Street exit of southbound Interstate 15 for a traffic violation, said Lt. Troy Burnett. He took the next exit onto 21st Street and fled into Ogden, Burnett said.

Police followed him around the city until he bailed out of the car near the 200 block of 34th Street. He was discovered hiding by a porch in a backyard at a home on the 3300 block of Lincoln about 12:30 a.m., Burnett said.

Terrazas was booked into Weber County Jail.

He was charged Monday with possession of a drug with the intent to distribute, failure to stop or respond at the command of police and several traffic-related misdemeanors.

Terrazas was a top priority for the gang unit and the crime reduction unit, said Lt. Scott Conley.
