MALAD, Idaho -- A man suspected of evading police in a stolen vehicle in Box Elder County was arrested Wednesday morning in Idaho.
The owner of Village Inn Motel in Malad called the Oneida County Sheriff's Office after a man matching the suspect's description checked in at 3 a.m., said Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry. A trucker had given him a ride to the motel.
The man gave a false name, but deputies were able to verify that he was the person they were looking for, Perry said.
Richard Quinn, 27, of Ogden, was booked into jail for giving false information to a police officer.
Investigators will determine what other charges he faces, which may include possession of a stolen vehicle, felony-level evading and parole violations.
UHP reported a high-speed chase in Box Elder County on Tuesday evening, with speeds reaching 90 miles per hour.
The stolen vehicle ran out of gas, and a foot pursuit ensued around 9:30 p.m., with the suspect getting away from police.
