WEST JORDAN -- The West Jordan Police Department has posted on its website the names of more than 200 victims who it believes had credit cards, Social Security cards and other items stolen by a man -- who made a daring escape Tuesday from Farmington police -- and a woman described as his accomplice.
The male, who is a suspect in numerous recent vehicle thefts in Salt Lake, Davis and Summit counties, is 40-year-old Joseph Lee Chatwin, of Salt Lake City.
Chatwin escaped custody Tuesday afternoon after he kicked out the window of a patrol car parked in a fenced-in area at the Farmington police headquarters.
He remains at large.
Chatwin had been left handcuffed and unattended in the back of the vehicle while a police officer went into the headquarters building to help subdue Shauntae Leah Stratton, 23, of West Valley City.
The woman, believed to be Chatwin's accomplice, was causing a disturbance, said Farmington Police Lt. Parish Snyder.
Stratton escaped from a holding cell inside the police station but was captured in a nearby park.
Stratton is being held in Davis County Jail on suspicion of six counts of unlawful use of a financial transaction card, three counts of theft, two counts of vehicle burglary, forgery, escape and receiving or transferring a stolen motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer.
Chatwin and Stratton are suspected of recently using stolen credit cards to buy items at Station Park in Farmington and using a counterfeit $30,000 cashier's check to purchase a 31-foot Bounder motor home in West Jordan, Snyder said.
Police found the motor home Tuesday at the Lagoon RV Park & Campground in Farmington and arrested Chatwin and Stratton.
West Jordan Police Officer Craig Carroll said he hopes publishing the names of the victims online at http://bit.ly/ftwVcr (click on "Documents Recovered From Stolen Motorhome" and scroll down) will help people more quickly retrieve their stolen items.
Those whose names appear on the list should call West Jordan police at 801-256-2211 and refer to case number 12H007190.
