OGDEN -- Police arrested a man after he led them on a chase through an Ogden neighborhood Thursday night.
An officer tried to pull over a Jeep sport utility vehicle near Ogden High School around 6:20 p.m., said Ogden Police Lt. Tony Fox. The officer thought he recognized a person in the SUV as someone with an outstanding warrant, Fox said.
But the driver of the SUV did not stop and drove south down an alley that runs from 28th Street to 29th Street, between Brinker Avenue and Harrison Boulevard.
The SUV smashed through a fence about halfway down the alley, drove through the southeast corner of a backyard, smashed through a second wooden fence and wound up in the backyard of a home that is south of the first.
The SUV came to a stop right up against the back of a brick house at 2850 Brinker Ave.
Two males in the SUV then fled on foot, Fox said.
Police set up a perimeter from 28th to 29th Street and between Monroe Boulevard and Van Buren Avenue -- which are about five blocks apart -- and looked for the suspects.
Within about an hour, officers had apprehended four people at different points within the perimeter.
Two people were let go.
Police did arrest James Jerry Moncada, 22, who was a parole fugitive. He was also arrested on suspicion of the hit-and-run property damage, evading, possession of marijuana and violating the gang injunction, Fox said.
One of the other men police apprehended and ultimately arrested was Mitchel Rader, 54. He had methamphetamine and synthetic narcotics on him, Fox said.
Evidence indicated Moncada was driving the SUV, but police did not have evidence that Rader was in the vehicle, Fox said.
Moncada and Rader were booked into Weber County Jail.
