OGDEN -- A 26-year-old man was arrested after police say he led them on a short chase while driving a stolen vehicle.
Tony Garcia was booked into Weber County Jail on suspicion of denied license, avoiding apprehension, evading, possession of a stolen vehicle, accident involving property damage and possession of marijuana.
Lt. Danielle Croyle said a 1994 Blazer was reported stolen from the 2000 block of Harrison Boulevard just after 6 a.m. Monday. Patrol officers spotted the Blazer driving near 24th Street and Monroe Avenue around 11 p.m.
Officers pursued the vehicle and were led on a chase through the central part of the city, Croyle said.
"He ends up turning into Hunter's Court," she said. "When he turns in, he hits a gate. Officers do a felony stop on the car, and he gets out and runs."
Officers chased Garcia until he reached the 2100 block of Washington Boulevard, where he was taken into custody.
Croyle said it was not immediately clear whether Garcia stole the car himself or received it from somebody else, but it is believed he knew it was stolen because he fled from police.
