West Valley City police arrested two men and a woman suspected of prowling a car dealership with the intention of stripping auto parts early Tuesday morning.
West Valley police Lt. Dale Brophy said an off-duty police officer working part time at the Henry Day Ford lot, near 4000 West and 3500 South, spotted the trio hanging around the lot about 2 a.m. When he went to question them, the three jumped into a truck and sped away.
The off-duty officer called 911 and a nearby West Valley officer spotted the suspect vehicle and gave chase. Another police unit laid out tire spikes at 2100 South and Bangerter which blew out the truck's tires.
